You know something is wrong when you have technical difficulties and get a F-list star (Despite I like Jim J. Bullock, I don't even think he's close to D-list) to co-host your second show.

This is sad, really. I'd have to agree with Jerry, this is a trainwreck.

The only saving grace for this night is the cameo by Jm J. Bullock. I think he's effing hilarious.

Well, he's not a co-host, per se. He's just a guest they have. Yesterday they had Phyllis Diller and both nights the guests have "out-funnied" the hosts.

The nuts on the TBS boards are going crazy. They've been claiming that they've been calling and emailing the FCC and the FTC claiming that they're doing illegal things and causing scams. Apparently, they've never seen PlayMania which is 100x smoother than MMM. However, they may have one legit beef. This is from some dude named walker575

The website [for online entry] was NOT working last night. If you viewed the page as SOURCE and know anything about HTML the Submit button did not have a TRUE value associated to it so it did NOTHING. The only way to get the damned thing to work was to hit ENTER not submit. And was this brought up on the show? I think not... This should have been made aware on the show to everyone... And it is considered gambling if there is no way to play for free so I can understand how many viewers saw this as fraudulent.

I don't know much about the legalities of stuff like this so I'm not going to comment, but this is kind of interesting.

My Tivo grabbed last night's show. I lasted exactly one minute.

Clearly me and my Tivo need to have a little talk.

Poor Tivo...the Tivo just did its job.  It wanted to bring you Madness and it gave you Madness.

As a Ted Turner "mark," I'm now ashamed with anything associated with Turner Broadcasting right now.

Before anyone jumps in, I know Turner hasn't had direct, if any, control of his properties in about a decade...I'm just a bit soured on the current TBS.

It could be worse.  You could be living in Philadelphia.  Trust me on that.

The internet was brought up exactly once on last night's show when someone emailed a complaint.

Well, there's yer problem!  Of course, I doubt the webmasters would be that smart.

EVERY time (and I do mean EVERY time) the Flyers come to San Jose, there are reports of Flyer-related vandalism to the building the next day. I believe last time someone ripped some of the pictures of ex-Sharks off of the walls of the club level.

I repeat: this ONLY happens immediately after the Flyers have been in town.

Classy fans. I feel no sympathy for them whatsoever, and delight in their futility.

Well, there is "The Closer."  Thank eyeww, Kyra.

And that "World's Funniest Commercials" actually wasn't bad as clipfests go.  I also admire Kevin Nealon's taste in women (that co-host is his wife).  I also feel that if he had a show on HBO instead of Showtime, he wouldn't have had to host that show.

Imitation is the sincerest form of television:

(Mediaweek) Twentieth Television will introduce a live program, My Games Fever, to all Fox owned-and-operated MyNetworkTV stations in December. Inspired by the UK genre of participation television, My Games Fever will consist of a multiple games format presented commercial free that will include text messaging and online interaction.

Oh, goodness. Well, this will be interesting. Truly, though, I don't think anything can surpass how well presented PlayMania is. Hell, I don't even know if we're getting a My station in my area.

I suppose it depends on how much money you win from it.

If your profile is correct, you are.  WNEM is devoting one of its digital subchannels to MyNetworkTV.
