If you're like me, you forgot about Face the Ace

I completely forgot to watch/record Face the Ace this weekend. I mean, it's a new show that gets it launch at 9PM on a Saturday night, so I'm sure a lot of people didn't realize it was on or realized it but forgot to watch it. Thanks to the Internet, here's the first episode. (For the record, the ratings weren't that great.)

The episode contains a pretty big SPOILER for the World Series of Poker on ESPN. I suppose I can't totally blame NBC--what happens at the WSOP is definitely poker news, and it isn't their fault that ESPN waits months before showing some of the action. Still, a lot of the potential audience for this show is planning to watch the WSOP on ESPN, so this is a spoiler for a lot of people.

I changed the channel before a single hand was played...

i'm with Elf, this show was the most painful show i've ever witnessed about poker. The host just killed it

Elf hits it spot on.
I also enjoy televised poker and thought this would be kind of interesting.

If Steve Shirippa hadn't immediately ruined it (which he did), it would have been ruined by the super fast blind raises that effectively turned this into Celebrity Coin Flip.

I can't say I forgot to watch as much as made no effort to watch.
