As some of you may know, I appeared on Rob Cesternino’s “Rob Has a Podcast” er…podcast a few months ago to talk about CBS’s hit reality show “Survivor” and NBC’s cult favorite comedy “Community.”
Quick Question: Can you appear on a podcast if it’s only audio?
Odds are, due to Rob’s status as a “Survivor” favorite, that the majority of people listening to the podcast were there to hear about “Survivor.” At one point, Rob caught me off guard and asked me to give my best pitch as to why people should watch “Community.”
And I choked. I don’t remember what I said, but it was beyond stupid.
However, despite my idiocy, every now and then someone will drop me a line to thank me for turning them on to “Community.” Rob himself also credits me with getting him into the show. And, I can only assume that his fond-of-footwear wife Nicole got a glimpse of Joel McHale when Rob was watching and became a fan too.
Personally, I think that’s awesome. Go Internet.
My question now? What’s with you holdouts?
I recently received a free copy of “Community” Season One on DVD, and while it’s tempting to keep it for myself for when my copy inevitably wears out, I think it’d be better served converting someone who’s never seen the show into a fan.
That’s why I’m pleased to announce the “Why the Crap Aren’t You Watching ‘Community’?” contest.
The Rules: To enter, leave a comment telling me what you’re so busy doing on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET. when you should be plopped in front of your TV.
I’ll pick the answer I consider to be the best and send them this brand spanking new copy of “Community” Season One on DVD.
The contest will end Wednesday, August 31, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Entries will also be accepted in diorama form.
