Did anyone else watch this? It was on FOX tonight 8pm EST

I'm watching Smackdown and my kid tells me "Come watch this guy eating hot dogs."

Sure enough it's a Japanese guy going to town on a plate full of hot dogs, buns included. He wins with 31. Closest competitor had less than half of that.

So now I'm hooked. They had the WWF flavor going on, entrance music, nicknames and a set that oddly resembled the one from Smackdown.

Various items consumed by eatin' champeens from all over the country - hamburgers, sushi, mayonaise and tongue!!!! All winners of the selected eaing events advanced to the finals.

A wild card round before the finals gave the guys one last chance to find glory. Food of choice - ROCKY MOUNTAIN OYSTERS (if you don't know what they are, that's probably a good thing.)

Final round to determine champion - COW BRAINS!

Mass vomiting by several contestants with the winner being the Japanese hot dog guy! 53 brains which equal just under twenty pounds. And the guy didn't even break a sweat.

Coolest show I've seen in a long time. Anybody know anything about this?

Highly recommended for you West Coast folks. Tape Smackdown.


Sorry about the edits - first time, you know :-)

It's just FOX's attempt at a cheap ratings boost in light of the Olympics taking up most people's TV time. They probably figured that the rednecks would get tired of seeing a "bunk of danged furriners" and go "Joey Bob! Lookit that guy eat all that butter!"

Family Guy sucked. One liner after one liner. Glutton Bowl had psychology. It's the real smarks choice.

Glutton Bowl just proved the theory. No one can eat 50 eggs.

Dammit Flea, why did you have to remind me I had forgotten about this?

I had heard the producer pimping it on the Bob & Tom radio show yesterday morning and totally forgot about it.

Guess going to the Y and making the wife happy by letting her watch figure skating comes back to haunt me, eh?

Still, I wish they hadn't cancelled The Tick! I really enjoyed that show, Family Guy not so much.

It had about the same social value as The Family Guy, which is to say none. It did, however, have fat guys wearing sunglasses and thinking it made them look cool, which gets it about a million more bonus comedy points.

I suppose however the Men's Olympic Hockey tournament goes, Canandians can now be proud that one of their own proved himself most adept at devouring testicles. But all of North America was shamed by that Kobayashi guy.

Oh, TV, you so crazy!

I saw the Japanese guy at the Coney Island Hot Dog eating contest last summer (I was working for a mayoral candidate and they all go to that thing). That guy destroyed everyone there also. He's inhuman.

You know how in the WWF the size of a guy's pyro seems to have a direct relationship to how much they job? Same in the Glutton Bowl. The more elaborate the costume, nickname, and entrance, the worse they did. That guy in full ancient rome regalia finished last in his heat.

My favorite was Don "Moses" Lerman, for obvious reasons. I also know who's starring in the next Broadway Revival of "of Mice and Men."
