They had this show DON'T JUST SIT THERE, you remember this? It was like a live audience show with guests. Hosted by geeky 14 year olds. I think Matt was one host. ALLIE, she was pretty dreamy.
I remember Hulk Hogan was on there. And WEIRD AL. But the one I really remember was Harry Connick Jr. He was there playing the piano and doing When The Saints Go Marching In. But then he starts riffing and making up lyrics, replacing "Saints" with the hosts and "come marching in" with "playing Nintendo".
I was only a little kid, but I was like wow. That Harry Connick Jr. He's so talented.
I never did figure out what we were supposed to do in addition to sitting there, though. Don't JUST sit there, it said. Meaning that we should also do something else. But what? Don't you want us to watch your show? Or was watching the show the other thing we were supposed to be doing in addition to sitting there? That seems like kind of a stretch.
Count Dukula. Really, everyone said Danger Mouse and missed this gem. I bought it for the wife who loves it. I would also You Can't Do That on Television and yes, I also would have banged Moose. I would say the Dave Coolia show til I learned he fucked Alanis when she was 14 or 15. Canada, the sometimes disturbing upstairs neighbor.

Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
I would say that "geek" and "nerd" have been sort of self-adopted by a lot of people to describe themselves in an obsessive sort of way. I know I have called myself a wrestling geek or a baseball geek on more than one occasion.
