Week 7 - Stop me if you've heard this one... 

Comedy Central unveiled it's list of the 100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians of All Time last week. (The list was quite subjective, I don't know who voted, no one asked me.) But it was a fun series of shows to watch. They are replaying it endlessly if you'd like to catch it. You can view their list here, if you'd like some help coming up with names for this week's questions!

1. Who is your favorite stand-up comedian of all time?

2. Which one could you do without? (Not your type of humor, or just plain stupid!)

3. Which comedian do you think has gone on to have a great career aside from doing stand-up?

~Bonus~ If you went to a comedy club on amateur night, and they gave you some jokes and a microphone, would you go onstage?

Thanks for playing - you are one wild and crazy guy!!!

Week 6 - Just the facts, m'am… 

Whether it was Barney Fife with one bullet in his pocket, or Lt. Columbo's "Just one more thing…", we could be sure in the old days that TV cops would wrap everything up neatly in 30 to 60 minutes. These days it may take a few episodes, but TV's top cops still manage to right most of the world's wrongs.

1. Who is your favorite (past or present) TV cop?

2. Which TV cop do you think was the most crooked, or the most inept?

3. Which TV show had the best ensemble cast of police officers?

~Bonus~ You need to hire a bodyguard for yourself. Which TV cop do you choose?

Thanks for playing… Let's be careful out there!

TV Note: Thursday and Friday this week at 10/9 p.m. central, Court TV is running a 2-part documentary called "Just the Facts", dissecting the accuracy of Hollywood's depiction of police work. "Police work is years of boredom punctuated by seconds of sheer terror," says Bill Davis of the California State Police. Doesn't quite seem that way on TV, does it?

Week 5- Is That Your Final Answer? 

Game Shows have kept us playing along for years… From What's My Line? to Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, we watch, yell at stupid contestants and generally feel superior, because we could be doing so much better! So let's see, do you have what it takes to play the game, or are you the Weakest Link?

1. Is there a game show (past or present) you think you would do really well on, as a contestant?

2. Is there a game show you think is the stupidest thing you've ever seen?

3. Is there a game show you watch, but don't like to admit to watching? (A guilty pleasure!)

~Bonus~ Who is your favorite game show host? Who is your least favorite?

(This theme suggestion comes to TV Tuesday from the lovely Busy Mom, our self-proclaimed "Child of the 70's". Thanks Busy Mom! If you have any ideas or suggestions, please e-mail me or leave it in the comment box!)

Thanks for playing! Now let's see what's behind curtain #3!

Week 4 - Executive Decisions 

The Networks are getting ready to announce their new fall schedules. Imagine what would happen if you could play programmer for one day!

1. What shows would make up a perfect night of TV viewing for you?

2. What show(s) would you cancel without a moment's hesitation?

3. Is there a show (previously cancelled or just no longer airing) that you'd bring back, original cast and all?

~Bonus~ You get to create one show to put on the schedule, with any stars you choose. Who and what would it be?

Thanks for playing "Programmer for a Day", now don't let the power go to your head - you know what Donald Trump says... "You're Fired!"
