Gordon: Travis Schario and Joe Van Ginkel have left us, but joining us now is
Jason Hernandez. We're back and it's time to do some betting. It's time to play
a new game for Jason and Don (though one we've played before with Myself and
Chico) called Place! Bets! Now! The rules are easy. We'll be giving you future
events and you'll be betting on them. Ready?
Gordon: Everyone's spotted 100 Dodgeballs. You get to bet your Dodgeballs anyway
you see fit.
Chico: That's a lot of balls.
Gordon: And we'll get the results on a future show.
Gordon: Event #1....
The Cut has moved to Friday Nights - the death slot - on CBS. Bet on the low
rated The Law Firm ...
1. Staying where it is,
2. Moving to Fridays or Saturdays,
3. Moving to a cable channel, like Court TV.
Jason: I bet 7 dodgeballs it will move to Saturdays. and another one it dies,
Chico: Ten CPA specials on Saturday.
Don: I'll put 15 dodgeballs on moving to another day.
Gordon: I'll also go 15 on moving it, with a 5 Dodgeball safety bet on moving it
to another channel, though I think that the David Kelley name will stop it from
moving off-network. Event #2.....
NBC decided not to go ahead with the Celebrity Idol clone, but Fox has decided
to go with the Ice Skating With Celebrities Clone. The Bet - will the ratings
1. Better than So You Think You Can Dance,
2. Worse than that, but better than dud American Juniors, or
3. Worse than American Juniors and a complete disaster.
Chico: 15 on a meltdown.
Don: Another 15 on a complete disaster.
Gordon: I'll go 10 on the disaster
Jason: I'll go 14 on a great big explosion of crappy ratings
Jason: 14 for the number of people who will watch - and we have at least one
of them here. ;-)
Jason: ......and it's not me
Fathom/Surface/whatever is scheduled for Monday at NBC. Fear Factor is scheduled

Gordon: I'll put 10 on Jury Duty, but that's it. Jason?
Chico: I'm calling a wipeout, 5 Reef Sharks on the field.
Jason: I'll say 7 on one of them makes the jury, but gone before the final 5,
and 6 that one of them gets to the final 5 as my safety bet.

but no final 5).

Don: I'll put 5 on Biggest Loser getting more ratings, but no side bets for
Chico: 10 on Apprentice, with a side of five on the Biggest Loser being...
Gordon: I'm going to go a 20 Sumo Storm on the Biggest loser and a 5 bet on each
category on Martha Stewart getting moved or going bye-bye. Jason?
Jason: I'll put 7 on Biggest Loser, simply coz I think most people are tired of
Martha Stewart. As for side bets....1 on that 10-1 kill bet.....three more on
the 2-1 time slot change
Gordon: ok. Last one....

worth more than $1,000, and
10-1 that they are the big winner.
Jason: You know what? I'm gonna put 26 that one of them gets on stage....
and another 19 that one of them actually gets picked and wins
Gordon: ok - I'll put the rest (10) on yes. Don?
Don: Do I have to use the rest of the dodgeballs?
Don: Okay. I'll put 20 on yes, with 10 saying that someone wins something,
and another 10 on that something being more than $1000.
