Yea, Mike Rowe is an excellent speaker, and he's passionate about the subject of real people doing real work. I'm interested.
Dirty Jobs was one of the best TV shows ever and Mike Rowe is one of the awesomest dudes ever.
It's not Dirty Jobs, it's more about the people, but it is an extension of the original segment that gave birth to Dirty Jobs.
Mike Rowe discusses CNN series - Zap2it | News & Features
I really don't know what the show will be like, I only became aware of it from a commercial yesterday. I assume most of you are in the same boat of being unaware of it, so it needed to be posted.
But it's Mike Rowe and he gets to talk, so I'm in for at least one episode.
So is CNN getting out of the "news" business and going into true reality TV?
CNN is shitty trashy news, they're no different than Fox News, except Fox News has leggy blonds, and CNN has Piers Fucking Morgan, WTF!
More Mike Rowe awesome.
If for some reason ppl do not know Mike Rowe, He did an awesome response to the stupid ice bucket challenge
Also his TED Talk from 2009 isn't boring as shit like 99% of TED talks. (I've listened to a lot of them driving, none have the impact like rowe)
He's also the crab fishing host, whatever the fuck that show is called.
He also did a reddit IAMA
All this is basically what's lead up to his new CNN show i guess, he's just likes filming hardworking ppl who like their jobs, fuck yes.
Mike Rowe is great, didn't know about this, thanks Grimm
Yeah, first thing EVER on CNN to make my DVR list.... I have high hopes, because I do like the guy and his message.
Mike going in depth with the technical people behind a Vegas Cirque Du Soleil style show was very interesting, and he was awesome and hilarious. Then going to a hair museum was bizarre as fuck, but he's always hilarious with old ladies. And I think his favorite thing to do is make them blush. He snuck at least one masturbation joke by her before he forced her to acknowledge the next one.
It's a good show, because it's Mike Roe doing Mike Rowe stuff.
More importantly, will they be using a Faith No More song as the theme song again? Keep spreading the gospel!
I went and saw La Reve my last trip to Vegas. This was an incredibly dull show, when compared to what Cirque Du Soleil puts out. Granted, this is water based, and I've never been to Cirque's "O", but this was a major let down. I'd much rather spend my time at Ka, Mistere or any of the other land based Cirque's than see this again. I've been to both Ka & Mistere twice now.
It was cool. He didn't get "dirty" like his last series, but cool to see how things get done and experiece some of it himself. My wife kept waiting for Barsky to show up, but we think since Mike is the Exec Prod of this one, he might be out. The Hair Museum was too funny. That older gal was the perfect straight man for his antics. I like the $5 to get in but Military get in for $3, Boy Scouts don't count as Military bit.
I am Mike Rowe and I can't seem to hold a job. I've been fired over 300 time in the last 10 years. Currently, and somewhat surprisingly, I am hosting a new show for CNN called Somebody's Gotta Do It. AMA. : IAmA
Haven't read it yet but I assume it's awesome and interesting as usual.
edit: Ha, QVC stuff.
Q: My mother swears up and down that in the early 90's, she caught the best Mike Rowe moment ever. She had turned on QVC at some stupidly late hour because she couldn't sleep. Mike Rowe was on-air, obviously displeased with having to sell things to an audience of practically no one. She claims that he walked off-set, and showed back up holding an ice cube with a string tied around it. He then proceeded to try and sell it with a straight face.
I've never been able to find a single clip or video that confirms her story, but I want to believe it so badly. If anyone can find proof of this, you'll be my internet hero.
A: Your mother speaks the truth. It was April 1st, 1992. I introduced Item # J-H20, The Ice Pendant. It was in fact, an ice cube, dangling from a piece of twine. The most extraordinary fact was not that 12 people actually ordered the damn thing. It was that the people taking the orders at QVC believed the product was genuine.
That episode set the stage for my second firing.
edit: more mike rowe is good, will watch show!
