Catch The Thrill on "Pick of the Week": taped Tuesdays at Planet Magic in Denmark, WI; on the air Sundays @ 1 am on WB-14!

...as you can tell from the new header text.

Yep, you can catch "Pick of the Week" hosted by TV Tommy (the man with the greatest mullet in television) and co-hosted by yours truly at 1 am Sunday mornings (or Saturday night if you're out late) on WIWB-14 in the Green Bay/Appleton TV market. (It shows up on your TV schedule as paid programming.) (TitanTV.com)

We discuss last week's Packer game, pick the week's upcoming NFL games against the spread, throw in a little karaoke and/or audience participation, TV Tommy gives you his Top 5, I pimp ACW-NWA Wisconsin wrestling, and we give you our "Pick of the Week" in the NFL.

The show's taped Tuesday nights @ 7:30 at Planet Magic (formerly DD's) in Denmark, WI...convienently off I-43. It's the only bar I know with a genuine Velvet Elvis, and a swingin' lounge in the back.

And for a show that's recorded on Super VHS, it ain't half bad. (Good post-prod work by the WB-14 crew.)

ScreamingHeadGuy, Mr. Boffo...do y'all get WB-14 down by you? How about the rest of you Wisconsin Wieners? (I've heard WIWB's signal shows up on out-of-market Wisconsin cable systems.)

And everybody: feel free to PM me all this season with your suggestions for picks against the spread. Feedback is good...Jack Daniels is better. :-)

You had BETTER use that as your on-air tagline.

Damn - I'll be watching (or maybe taping) this weekend from the folks' house up in DePere!

As for offering you advice in picking against the spread, I've proven to myself time and again that a coin does better than I against the spread!

I was just about to tell you, "No I don't get that", but then I happened to look at my cable listing, and they tell me it's channel 9. Shows how much I really pay attention to the channels. And right now ... some crappy Kids WB cartoon that I've never heard of is on. I'll have to tape it sometime ('cause I can't stay up until 1 AM, even on a Saturday night).



NOTE: The above post makes no sense. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Yes, I do get it. But I can't remember what channel Charter Cable gives it here (I could turn on the tube now, but...eh, I'm lazy).

So I'll be taping it and eagerly watch a Wiener on television.



I'm ScreamingHeadGuy, and I approve this post.

That makes at least three of us watching -- let's hope your ratings don't double ;)

For those who aren't in Cheezehead territory, is there a way we can see your show? I mean, if a fellow W is on TV, I'd like to check it out :-)



Wouldn't it be funny if there was an italian chef named Al Dante?

If I haven't already, I shall do so on your behalf, sir. Although seeing as how I wear a fedora, sunglasses, and obnoxious shiny shirt (to counter Tommy's sequined sleeves) on-air, I ain't exactly in an appearance-critiquing position, what say. :-)

Unfortunately, it's not available online or rebroadcast anywhere else.

But if you'd like, PM me your snail mail address and I could send you, or anybody else who wants one, a VHS copy.

If anything, the fedora makes The New People's Mullet stand out even MORE. :)

Being in the Green Bay market -- they can't spring for a mini-DV cam or two?

SVHS, especially in a higher market, makes me shudder.

Catch The Thrill on "Pick of the Week": taped Tuesdays at Planet Magic in Denmark, WI; on the air Sundays @ 1 am on WB-14!

Dangeresque 3...er, Pick of the Week, Day 143...er, Week 7: PRODUCTION UPDATE!

Turns out this week, I'm not actually co-hosting, but I *am* the featured karaoke singer. (Cameramen tried to keep up with a mobile-singin' Thrill...might not be so pretty. But I did do "Viva Las Vegas" a bit o' justice.) But I still get credited as "production manager," whether I'm switching or co-hosting.

We do the show in conjunction with a couple other bars, and they sent 2 people instead of 1 to make their picks, so we had to get 'em both on. Consequently, I had to give up my seat this week.

But fear not, true believers, because with TV Tommy out of town the next 2 weeks, I'm the host! Now, if I can just get the midget that wrestles for ACW-NWA WI to get on the show...

And Teppan-Yaki: it's a 2-camera show: one older TV production cam (professional, but might be tube instead of 3-chip, but still puts out a good picture) and one rented 3-chip MiniDV cam, run through the same type of Panasonic switcher my indy promotOR used in college 10 years ago. It's recorded raw on Super VHS, and that gets dubbed to Beta and edited at WIWB...looks better on TV than I thought it would.

So, The Thrill, in black hat and black shirt with jagged silver stripes, sings! I can't tell if that one woman just didn' want to be on-camera, or if your singing drove her off.

If this is paid programming, then do you just sell the time to individual commercials? I was waiting for a "Mr. Plow" commerical. Instead, the best one was for Titletown Construction, where the guys just stand around for half of the commercial.

Lemme guess - this bar is about 20'x50' consisting of the bar and a walking area from the front door to the bathroom in back.

That Herbie is totally going to get his butt kicked one of these days by TV Tommy (whose white mullet looks to be taking-over his head).

CHAZ! You magnificent bastard, I salute you! You gotta get your genuine-pro-wrestlin' ass down here for the show. I need 1 guest for this week, and 2 for next, so we can absolutely get you in. Send me a private message on this site (or just get my number from Jason Jerry).

HEY! That's a fedora, pally. :-) (But thanks for the Fashion Report, too!)

Naw, she just wasn't digging being on-camera. Trust me, I've driven enough of 'em off to know when I'm being bailed on. :-)

Yep, TV Tommy sells ad time. How 'bout that vintage Fox Hills ad? Weird, considering I've seen them air a more modern commercial on other broadcast outlets.

I never really measured the place...but I've gotta figure out a way to showcase the SWANK lounge in back that you don't see on TV. It doesn't match the rest of the bar at all, but it's old-school cool. Throw in a little music from the Summit and you've got it made, pally.

I seriously doubt TV Tommy will be kickin' anybody's butt soon. And the mullet is actually a light blonde...it's by far the greatest head...er, hair on television. Just awesome.

Remember, next week, folks...I don't sing, I HOST THE WHOLE F'N SHOW. God help us. :-)
