I'm guessing the DC production crew got the long weekend off since PTI and I think Around the Horn were also both not on along with HQ. And everyone was off Friday since Mike went to Wrestlemania and I guess it was an excuse for Dan and Stu to take 3 day weekend.
Excellent article by Mike Schur (producer of The Office US, co-creator of Parks & Rec and Brooklyn Nine Nine, and creator of The Good Place) about the show and the rise of Le Batard's little empire of ear poison. He's a big fan of the show and people were wondering why he was sitting in in the Shipping Container a few weeks ago. This is why.
