The Bombs Bursting in Air
- July 6
I don't have to rehash for the 99th time just how
dismal many of the Summer shows have been so far. But if
I didn't, then not only would I not be doing my job, but
I would also not be able to vent out the frustration
that's being matched by many of you viewers out there.
Hence, instead of just ranting about the shows, (and as
this is the week of the 4th of July) I have created some
Box Office Burst - Have you ever seen the spectacle of a
disaster movie? Well relive it on tv with the Box Office
Burst. Each firework comes with the golden director's
chair on the On the Lot logo, perfectly signifying how
much of a golden turkey this show has been.
Pirate Masters Sparklers - Since you can't use real
swords, why not these hand-held shooters that you can
use to shoot out sparks? Of course, that's probably the
only spark you're going to get from this show, which has
turned formulaic since episode 1 and has me wanting to
make this boring Survivor retread walk the plank.
O-69s - You've heard of M80's? Well come get some O-69s!
National Bingo Night's set of fireworks come with
poppers (which some producers truly had to have been on
when they created the idea to this mess) and 75 snaps.
Bingo Drome not included.
Last Comic Standing Novelties - You know about the
little novelties. They look like little kiddie toys,
which shoot off a little bit and then lose their luster,
lose what makes them unique, and then the kids shuttle
off into their closet. Well these comic novelties work
the same way - except for ANT, who is already out of the
The Fast Cars and Superstars Wheel Works - Wheels, when
lit, they spin around their center emitting showers of
sparks - just like John Cena's Car. They spin at
incredible speeds, but then blaze out rapidly - just
like the show did.
But wait - although the holiday will end this weekend,
the Summer is just beginning! Join us at the end of the
summer, when we may be getting another inventory of
fireworks - or just a grateful audience eagerly watching
the shows embers fade out into nothingness.
Of course, The Pricing Games on The Price is Right
aren't going anywhere.
Now and Then - 1 big hint is that some of the products
weren't MADE back then. They obviously don't have a then
price because they werne't around back then. Even if you
don't know prices, you should be able to deduct your way
to a win.
One Away - The 4th number is usually a 1. Go for the 5
or 9 for the last number, if it's available.
1 Right Price - This is a game where they don't try to
trick you. Common sense here says that if a price looks
reasonable, then it's the correct one to go for.
The summer gave proof
through the night that Gordon Pepper was still there.
