Speaking of which, it's time to plug Stu's Show for next week (February 21) which I hope everyone will listen and/or watch as it is on Internet TV, and on a bi-weekly schedule (if this needs to be put into a new topic, that's fine). Here is the full description:

"In 2008, a contestant made an exact bid on a Showcase during the final moments of a taping of America's longest running game show. Unfortunately, it did not happen during Bob Barker's regime. What followed afterward was panic and anger from the newly-installed production team and host. What could have become tremendous publicity for the 37-year old program was quickly passed over as a result of the decision made behind the scenes. All game show fans remember the moment. But what most game show fans (and the public) most likely don't know is that there was an incredible back story to the whole incident, a back story that has now been documented in a new feature that's winning awards all over the country for not only its candid look at its principle subject, but also for its enter-taining look at how "The Price is Right" was managed and operated during its heyday. The film's producer/director CJ WALLIS will be in studio along with former TPIR showrunner (and film co-star) ROGER DOBKOWITZ to reflect on the story of Ted Slauson, the uber fan who attended more than 23 tapings before he was selected as a contestant and then caused a major stir at the program years later when he helped a contestant win his Showcase with that exact bid. We'll also get the story behind CJ's quest to create the film, and how both Roger and Bob Barker appeared in the film to help tell the saga of "the contestant who knew too much". And yes, of course, we'll have a generous sampling of clips from the film along with the reading of your e-mails!"

This should be a great show! Think about sending questions for next week (brief and short). Here is the link to watch the stream come the 21st at 4pm PT/7 pm ET:

Listening to the show, did i hear correctly that Fremantle ordered the removal of the fact that Ted was permabanned from the documentary, further claiming that no such ban list exists?

Without that information, the title of the documentary makes little sense.

The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

And we are done! About 2 hours and 40 minutes worth, and the show will be available in both audio and video PPV formats soon. Hopefully you will all become a VIP listener soon to access free PPV and some free audio...

Enjoyed watching the Stu's Show interview yesterday. I'm planning to drive four hours and head on down to the Fargo screening. Still waiting to see what date/time it will be showing at.

Hello! For anyone in North Dakota, we are the opening night special gala screening at the Fargo Film Festival March 20th. Should be a great event and only a handful of screenings left! The film is a totally different experience with a crowd!
