I Pity the TV Producer

Because television needs another advice show, TV Land is bringing us I Pity the Fool. If you can’t figure out from the title that Mr. T is doling out advice, then you’re a grade A sucka.

Actually, it probably won’t be a terrible show, but I’d like to take this moment to ask how the heck Mr. T is still a celebrity? Wasn’t his medicore TV show (that I never once saw an episode of) on over 20 years ago? Has he really done anything of note, in terms of entertainment, in the last 20? The only time I ever heard anything about what he was up to was on Howard Stern (remember him?).

Make sure you check out the sneak peek and the “Rules for Fools.”

The jibba-jabba stops here.

(Thanks to Chris for the tip-off.)

He did a few commercials recently for some 1-800 phone company thing. Other than that, I hadn’t seen him since the A-Team days…

Didn’t he beat cancer?

I vaguely remember him doing a movie once too. It seemed to me the ad showed a taxi.

Isn’t it amazing what a crappy haircut can do for one’s career?

He had cancer for a while. I saw him in a movie as a pilot (the name escapes me. Wierd Al sang the theme song) He’s also done some commercials for comcast.

Oh how we forget. He also had a cartoon show entitled Mister T that I’m not ashamed to admit that I watched.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
