John was a guest on Rainn Wilson's IG live and chatted about selling 'Some Good News' to CBS, a decision lots of people were not happy with

"It was one of those things where I was only planning on doing eight of them during quarantine, because I have these other things that I'm going to be having to do very soon, like 'Jack Ryan' and all this other stuff."

"More than that...writing, directing, and producing -- all those things -- with a couple of my friends was so much."

"I would love to keep doing the show from my office forever. It just wasn't sustainable."

"In eight weeks [Some Good News] went from not existing to now being on one of these huge news networks. We have a lot of really fun stuff planned, and I can't wait to dig in. I'm going to be a part of it whenever I can, and I'm going to host a couple [episodes] and bring on a different community of people. But we're really, really excited about it. I've received the most amazingly kind notes about how much that show meant to everyone, but the truth is, it meant no more to anyone than me. That's probably the most emotionally fulfilled I've ever felt in my entire life."
