I saw that on flipping the channels, thought maybe the local NBC affil was desperate for cash, didn't know it was an actual show.

perverse glee though? The Leno thing was totally EARNED, but this one feels just a little (don't misunderstand me here).. a LITTLE easy and cheap. You know I love ya, Herc.

Anthony Robbins failed to find a home at NBC. Oh bother.
Aug. 5, 2010, 2:08 a.m. CST
If you can believe it.
Aug. 5, 2010, 2:11 a.m. CST
It's just a fact. Whatever idiot greenlit this show should be fired.

So why watch a show with him? 'Nuff said!

Robbins should play Lurch in the next Addams Family remake. You Rang?!?...

Seriously minus football, this network isn't even on my radar. ABC has Wipeout for the wife with college football. CBS has football, IMYM and Big Bang plus I may give Shatner's show a try. Fox has Bones, football and the animation Sunday block. I watch more FX with Sons and their movies then I do NBC. This channel is fucking worthless even before the Jay Leno debacle which drew me even further away. I remember this being my childhood teenage years channel from Alf to Cosby to Night Court to Cheers to Seinfeld to West Wing to Heroes. Now, its utter trash.
Aug. 5, 2010, 7:48 a.m. CST
didn't NBC try this 10-12 years ago with Susan Powter and "Stop the Insanity" with her series from daytime to primetime, that lasted all of one episode. Motivational Speakers = Boring Television

Into Creating New Series...Jay Leno used to say that network executives would comment that his face is too scary for prime time. What's their excuse for Robbins? To echo what paulloch stated, even a sitcom built around a motivational speaker, the one with Jason Alexander, failed terribly.
Aug. 5, 2010, 9:45 a.m. CST
There was a reality series with Tony Robbins? Never heard of it until NOW. That MIGHT'VE been part of the problem.
Aug. 5, 2010, 9:52 a.m. CST
well, will we?

I tune in every week and i love the show but it's basically just 30 mins of youtube videos with tosh's commentary. So i guess my point is..where the fuck is the Tosh.0 talkback Herc?

The first time I saw an ad for this show was last night, so I would say NBC might have goofed in that regard.
Aug. 5, 2010, 3:20 p.m. CST
The guy's a two-bit bunko artist, plain and simple. It's just that America has no shortage of suckers, is all. I'm glad his show is canned, but equally pissed that we'll have to endure more of that stupid gameshow hosted by that Food Network- Time Traveller From 1997 Guy Who Is Actually Named "Guy".

...True Blood(dominates Sunday Night), Mad Men, The Closer(1.5), Entourage, Jersey Shore, and Rizzoli and Isles (1.4)? Your list has no focus. Choose a genre, a day, an outlet, or a time and stick with it, instead of lumping a bunch of disparate programs together and trying to make us believe you have some rhyme or reason for doing it when there is none. Except that you have a deadline.

Is anything on networks that's "reality" good? No. The cable channel stuff is much better. A few exceptions, maybe "Hell's Kitchen" (still waiting for someone to plant a meat cleaver in Ramsey's skull before the off-screen bodyguard can stop 'em.
Aug. 6, 2010, 12:33 a.m. CST
yeah, Tony's show will come out on 5 1/4" floppy disk (even with all the extras.) he shoulda stuck to playing Lurch and pitching empowerment to insomniacs.
Aug. 6, 2010, 3:10 a.m. CST
Nothing wrong with it. Its bar/house party games. Big deal. Not everything has to be "Mad Men." Sometimes people want something that can be just on in the background.

Check out Stiller's "Tony Bobbins" from the old and underappreciated "Ben Stiller Show" in the 90s. Absolutely hilarious. "Isn't it all worth it if I can make just one person happy? Even if that one person is me?"

In the Family Guy episode, "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein", Peter goes to a Robbins book signing event. Peter introduces himself and Robbins bellows "Tony Robbins Hungry!", proceeding to swallow Peter whole in a manner resembling a snake.

the fact that his show aired TWICE before being "yanked" sort of indicates that we do NOT 'lap up this guy'.<p> also you are an idiot.

Yeah, that "Guy" is an annoying douchebag....almost as annoying as that other douchebag on Extreme Home makeovers.
