Ep. 1252: Where we rock the couch with Ben Hoffman Video
On today's show, we counted up all the times AT&T is making you pay them to deliver various bits, and frankly, we're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore. Then again, it's not like Verizon's not headed in the same direction, and it's not like our shareholder-dependent capitalist society would have it any other way. (Don't worry, we don't do that for long.) Also, iPhone 4's display may be "gorgeous," but it's the reason for all the production shortages. --Molly
Our guest today is David Koechner, known for his role as Champ Kind on "Anchorman" and the sequel out this holiday season. We'll chat with him about his SNL audition, the Improv Olympic theater in Chicago, and the future of comedy with regards to his hilarious YouTube series, Full on Koechner.
On today's 404: a totally fake hoverboard commercial; 11 percent of Americans thinks HTML is an STD; a tour of Seinfeld's apartment using Oculus Rift; and a sit-down chat with comedian Andy Daly of Comedy Central's upcoming show "Review."
Our guest today is Scott Aukerman, host of the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast and the eponymous IFC television show. We'll talk about him about his history in comedy, how he met Reggie Watts, and take a step back to discuss his experience helping to create "Between Two Ferns."
The Bubble Boy gets released from quarantine and joins us back on today's episode of The 404, where we're chatting about Dish Network grabbing Blockbuster for $228 million, a Canadian service that could mean the end of missed packages, a girl that can't closer her mouth, and the end of one of our favorite TV shows: 30 Rock.
Happy belated 4th! We're back from celebrating on Independence by blowing up a piece of it, and we spend the first half of today's episode recounting all the BBQ we ate yesterday. We're also bringing you results of the annual Nathan's hog dog eating contest and breaking news about one of our favorite shows on Comedy Central--and of course we wouldn't let a Monday go by without Tanging that Tune!
They said it would never happen, but the day has finally come for Justin to get some much-needed tail....as he dons a skunk costume and becomes Justin Le Pieu for today's very unspooky Halloween episode of The 404! Be sure to check out today's video for all the details. Since Jeff is out today and this coming Monday for who-knows-what, the guys ask everyone's favorite Kenley and Alli to help co-host the show.
We have Mark Milion as a guest on today's episode--he's a tech reporter for CNN.com, which means he'll spend half of the show fielding questions from Wilson about Anderson Cooper. We also chat about the future of micro-blogging and of course, we have to grill him about his "Hottie of the Week" achievement last year.
Today we're joined by Robin Yang, a gamer that made her first CNET appearance on preGame last year and will soon move to Seattle to work for PopCap Games, the creator of online casual games like Plants vs. Zombies, Bewjeweled, and Peggle. But before she heads out West, she's guest hosting today's show about the Playstation hack fallout, a man arrested for singing Kung Fu fighting, the next Terminator film, and a Google survey about smartphones in the bathroom.
Bridget Carey makes her first appearance on CNET TV today. She's the host of an upcoming daily tech news show on CNET called Checked In, so be sure to follow her on Twitter so you don't miss the first episode. She'll help us out with our story rundown today and gives her take on Lavar Burton bringing back Reading Rainbow as an iPad app, an LA film studio constructing an underground "post-apocalyptic" fortress, and the resurgence of AOL e-mail addresses as a pre-Internet status symbol.
