I often hear about a TV season having both clunkers and keepers.

What does it mean?

Clunkers are the bad episodes and keepers are the good ones. (In case this stays closed at least you get an answer.) – Meat Trademark Mar 3 '14 at 0:50

A "clunker" is used to describe something that's broken, originally as in a car that is often broken-down.

A "keeper", on the other hand, refers to something worth keeping, or the opposite of a clunker.

While one could infer your answer to the OP, can you edit to be more explicit in the context of TV shows – DustinDavis Mar 3 '14 at 19:29
