What should happen to Pitchmen now?

PitchmenThe season finale of Discovery Channel's Pitchmen airs tomorrow night at 10PM (after a day-long marathon of the show). But now that Billy Mays has passed away suddenly, what should happen to the show?

Discovery hasn't made a decision yet. They could continue the show will just Anthony Sullivan, they could get another commercial/product icon to take Mays' place, or they could simply cancel the show. What do you think they should do?

Commercial king makes appearance at Obama press conference - VIDEO

Jay LenoIsn't it funny how the best parts of Jay Leno's show are the parts that he has absolutely nothing to do with? Where the personalities of Letterman and Kimmel and O'Brien are all over their shows, shows that they make better by the stuff that they actually do and the way they react to things, the funny/great things on Leno's show are things like Headlines, stand-up comics, and the musical guests at the end of the show.

For example, the clip after the jump. It's a bit where Leno talks in his monologue about how President Obama is taking questions from just about anyone in his press conferences. This could be dangerous, though, because a very loud guy could suddenly jump up during the press conference and not only take over the whole event but also try to sell you various cleaning solutions, clothing repair kits, and portable grills.

Billy Mays gets his own reality show

Billy MaysI was going to type this entire post in all caps, the way Billy Mays talks, but I thought that might be a little annoying.

Everyone's favorite informercial pitch man is getting his own reality show on The Discovery Channel. It's called But Wait...There's More, and will follow Mays and Anthony Sullivan as they find new products and pitch them to you.

Discovery also has other new shows coming up, including Out of the Wild, which will have suburban-dwellers trying to rough it in Alaska, and Working on the Edge, a movie spinoff of the popular Deadliest Catch series. You'll follow the adventures of a fishing boat in the Bering Sea.

But wait...there's more! Act now and you'll also get Swamp Blogging, which is about a tree logger. I'm not even sure what the hell blogging has to do with logging. Maybe it's a typo?

If this is a success, maybe we'll see a show with ShamWow guy Vince as a private eye.
