    That show would be better with Vince the Shamwow guy. He could teach them how to sell a product then how to succesfully whoop a hookers *** after that.

    Not awesome. If I can't take the guy for 30 seconds at a time, 30 minutes at a time are a non-starter.

    It's going to be 27 minutes of Billy Mays rubbing shoe polish into his beard, and three minutes of schilling crap. I'm excited!

    This article is from Aug. 2008 - did they scrap it because I haven't seen anything.

    Nah, I saw a commercial for it on the Discovery Channel, and just did a quick google search to find some more info.

    No surprise there; a hard-workin' guy just wants to watch ESPN (or peruse Cyclone Fanatic) and wham, out of nowhere some loud guy is pitchin' crap nobody cares about....:jimlad:

    He does have an ESPN commercial now. He is really funny and makes fun of his infomercials when promoting ESPN360.

    I heard Billy Mays on Adam Carolla's radio show about a month ago and he was talking about the show.
    Sounds like a lame hybrid between one of his infomercials and that Inventor show that was on last year.

    The only good stuff that he talked about was his deep hatred for Shamwow Vince, and how he wanted to beat him down.

    I guess the hooker beat him to it.
