The TV Addict Extends His 15 Minutes… just got called up to the big leagues by North America’s preeminent television critic.

Last week, after listening to TV Guide Canada Columnist Amber Dowling both literally and figuratively phone in her special guest appearance on Tim Goodman’s TV Talk Machine, your very own TV Addict decided to take matters into his own hands and throw Amber “Under the Bus.”

In a nutshell, I fired off an email to Mr. Goodman, Podcast partner Joe Garofoli (QB) and Manny (on the knobs) offering my TV expertise should Amber ever get cancelled due to low ratings, far too quiet a voice or the fact that those on “Team Joe” are not a fan of QB being silenced while Amber and Tim flirt over the phone.

Much to my surprise, Mr. Goodman called my bluff. Interrupting me mid-BIG BANG THEORY (Joe, not as dirty as it sounds, get your head out of the gutter!) and challenged my TV expertise (or lack their-of) by posing one incredibly challenging television related question.

Did this TV Addict bring his “A” Game? Will J.J. Abrams ever pose for a photo with me again? Was I able to NOT answer questions as well as the highly paid professionals? Click here to find out for yourself!

    Kudos TV Addict. You deserve it!

  • Alyssa

    What did he ask you? I can’t listen to a 45 min podcast at work!

  • tim w. in tx

    Glad to see ‘you’re still working it.” =) Kudos TVA. Keep up the great work.

    Thanks for the kind words Tim W.
    Alyssa, you can also download the TVTM podcast on iTunes.

  • Jonah

    I’m with you, Alyssa. If I have to download squat, especially at iTunes (which I don’t even belong to)….it just ain’t happenin.’ Not even a two-min. podcast.

    I will never move into the new era of media that requires me to work. I’m here on this site…reading for a purpose. If you want my reaction or commentary on something, I better see it in writing.

  • Trixie

    I’m with you – Amber sucked on the last TVTM! (or as Joe and Tim would say “Brooootal”) Good for you! I can’t wait to hear the show. Are you going to buy a shorty robe to celebrate the occasion?? Congrats!
