possible heads up


I taped a segment for VH1's new series "The Best Week Ever" a couple of days ago.

I took at look at the VH1 website a moment ago, (I'll admit it. I think "Super Secret TV Formulas" is the best idea since Britney said, "Hey, this Boone's is making me feel horny. Wanna get married, so I can say I saved it?") and the topics I talked about are listed for tonight's show.

So I'm guessing that, if I didn't suck, I'll be on at 11PM EST on VH1.

I had a TON of fun when I did the show, and I'm #praying that I'll get #offered a chance to contribute more to the show, and maybe their blog.

Updated: Well, none of my stuff made it. Maybe I'll get another chance next week -- there are a few topics we talked about that weren't on this episode. If anyone needs me, I'll be crossing my fingers.

By the way, how cool is it that Chris Jericho is so damn funny?

One More Update: I just heard from a producer at VH1. He told me that there were some issues, unrelated to me, that prevented my stuff from getting on this week. He says there's a good chance it will happen next week, so be sure to tune in then!

I promised an increase of 5 viewers, you guys. Don't make me look bad.

I'm sitting at my computer at work... and just told my TiVo to record it.

I love technology.

(first comment?)

So now I have to watch VH-1 and TechTV tonight. It's a good thing I have no social life on Friday nights.
I *wish* I could get TiVo!

Yay, Wil's on TV tonight!
=^)

dude, I fucking love that show!

I'll definatly make Seth watch it with me tonight :)

Was this the deal that went down with VH1 that you blogged about a couple of months ago?

:::checks watch:::
Sweet, it's not too late :)

That sucks about your stuff getting cut. I'm emailing VH-1 and demanding more Will Wheaton.

I can't believe you weren't on there, but WFS was! That's so uncool. :P

I was bummed that you weren't on, but some of it was damn funny. Except WFS.

Golden Jugs!

Geez, couldn't they have put everyone in somewhere? It just seems, well, inefficient to spend the money/time to interview a person and then cut ALL of their part out. I guess that's why I'm not a big-shot TV exec. :)

Well, that stinks that you got cut tonight. The other week "Child Stars of the '80s" was on and I caught it just in time to see your whole segment.

Hooray for VH1 loving the 80s.

(Your interview on there was great, by the way.)

Hmmm... damn VH-1 for cutting Wil when I've seen so many inane clips by Donal Logue. Maybe VH-1 was just using Wil because they knew he'd talk about it here which would translate to a good bump in their viewership.

I just watched the tape.
Sorry man.
I hope you got paid anyway.

Jericho is the best. Lots smarter and more articulate than many of the guys he works with. You should check out his band Fozzy. http://www.fozzyrock.com/index.html

You know that VH1 completely stole the whole "Secret TV formula" from a website called "Jump the shark"? I don't think they have properly attributed this concept to the originators. They stole the idea!!!!

Rule. Mike Nelson was in it. Mike rules.

It kind of sucks that they didn't put you on Best Week Ever. And you're right, Supersecret TV Formulas is good. I hope you get on the air next week.

i love you. stand by me has been one of my favorite movies since i was a young lad. i looove you.

Wil,
There will be other projects. Don't forget to have a nice weekend.

FG

How could they cut Wil Wheaton and yet include several clips from annoying MTV has-been Kennedy? She was intolerable back in '94, and if anything she's gotten worse over time.

Hope the check cashed.

i taped that whole show for nothing! don't worry. i taped over it with your segment on the screensavers. and i missed the 80's interview with wil! now i have to find it!
hope to see you next week on the show, wil!

What Cholling said. They couldn't have cut Kennedy and left your stuff in?!?
I did catch your interview on ScreenSavers though. Very nice.

I'll watch! But the only viewers who will help VH1 are the ones with the neilsen boxes on their TV.. so if you've got one, you must tune in!

On a completely unrelated note, how did you code that box in your comments to prevent comment spam. If you read this, and can provide any help, I'd like to add it to my blog and Up For Poker. Got hit with a comment spammer the other day... 273 comments on 273 posts :-(

if only I HAD cable.... ah, being poor and a geek.

I've got to "third" that thought.

Chris Jericho is a funny guy.

Ah man, that sucks that you weren't on. I didn't see the post until late, so I wouldn't have been able to catch it anyway. And I would watch it next week...but I'm off to China Wednesday, so I'll miss it then too :(

Best of luck in getting more stuff on the show though *thumbs up*!

Hey Wil -

If it helps any, I saw you on Real TV last week. You were a trivia question at the end of the show. They showed a clip of you playing a teenage doctor on some show(maybe St. Elsewhere?), and asked who the actor was. IT WAS YOU!!
I yelled the answer at the screen, but they didn't hear me. Stupid TV.

Bumped in favor of Stephanie McMahon... bummer. And I actually flipped off of Comedy Central for once, too.

You're silly. I am sure you'll get an increase of more than 5 viewers! ;)

I wish I had VH1 Wil. I'd watch for sure. Well, maybe. I'm a busy gal afterall. ;)

Don't make me look bad.

We're on it. *grin*

I love Chris Jericho! He is really funny. I think Mick Foley is the best though.

"WHEN THE NIGHT HAS COME AND THE LAND IS DARK, AND THE MOON IS THE ONLY LIFE WILL SEE, NO I WON'T BE AFRAID, NO, I WONT BE AFRAID, JUST AS LONG AS YOU STAND, STAND BY ME.

SO DARLING, DARLING, STAND, STAND BY ME...

So sorry you piece was cut. I hope you get on next week!

Anybody out there seen a seriously ill woman who likes to badly quote Ben E.King? She's from New Jersey and she is NOT to be approached! She has recently escaped from the Lambertville Asylum and is considered loud and dangerous. This patient suffers from severe identity crisis and has the compulsion to speak all in CAPS. She has a rather disturbed obsession with the great Wil Wheaton of Star Trek The Next Generation and Trivial Pursuit fame. She claims that he appears on her TV screen in the wee hours of the night speaking to her in Hebrew and instructing her to seek a way to bring peace in the middle east. She also resents Britney Spears for reasons that are not known.Please call your local police should you see her cavorting in your town. Thank you.

Hey, I saw the ScreenSavers segment and thought it was great....but what was up with Leo's observation about those scientists "who were all younger than Wil" being star struck (or something that that effect). I thought the folks he interviewed were all much older.... (hmmm, maybe *I'm* getting old and can't reliable guess people's age...)

What was the issue you were going to talk about Wil?

I just saw your bit on the big "Best of the Best Week Ever" hosted by Regis. You were talking about the bottled water Ice T put out. It was so awesome to see you on there.
