It was really heartbreaking when pitchman Billy Mays died last year. As if the guy wasn't already a household name (or at least face and voice), he had just kicked off a new show on Discovery Channel, the appropriately titled Pitchmen.
With Mays gone, it would seem natural that the show would shut down production. However, the show (and pitches) apparently must go on. Original pitchman Anthony Sullivan is still selling. Of course, the show is titled Pitchmen. This season, to fill the Mays void, Discovery brought in, well... Billy Mays. It's actually Billy Mays III.
Is anyone watching? If so, you might want to tune in. I thought the first season had a bit of a slow start, but was getting interesting. That said, I was sort of hoping for something that was a cross between the actual show and ABC's Shark Tank.
Below is a clip of next week's episode. If you like what you see, you can catch Pitchmen every Thursday at 9:00p.m. (EST) on Discovery Channel.
