    Pitchmen

    Okay, whether or not you think Billy Mays is awesome this is a fun one. It premieres tonight at 10 on the Discovery Channel. The premise is following Billy Mays and Anthony Sullivan, as well as people who invent the products you see on infomercials, and the whole creative process-from the inventors who put everything on the line in hopes of their invention making it having a meeting with Billy and Sully, to the production of the infomercial spot, and hearing how it does.

    Some of the things look interesting-for example, the gel insoles that are in the premiere episode-but there are sure to be some duds as well.

    May I say, what a Primadonna Billy Mays is, lol! Sully (Anthony Sullivan) looks like the more sane of the 2.

    I am interested to see more and see what these guys try to sell.

    It's funny because I saw the thing for the DuoSaw, and it actually looks interesting.

    Of course Billy Mays is a primadonna, he doesn't want to ruin his pitching hands! I think he could sell stuff like that on the radio though-he has one of the most recognizeable voices out there.

    His voice goes right through me. Not a pleasant sensation, as you can imagine.

    I thought it was kind of funny how they rib each other...at the test for the Shuffles, Billy was pretending to pitch the product to Sully's cleaning crew and then he said "Oh, and Sully wants his bed moved from upstairs to downstairs. Surprise!...If anyone is hungry, just go into the fridge. Compliments of Billy....Anyone have any long-distance phone calls they need to make?"
