    Ok, I'm sorry. I respect what Joel Comm does and everything, but this is seriously ridiculous, in my opinion.

    The reason I watch reality Shows is to see:

    A) Lesbians fighting over Tila Tequila, whilst showing some legs, or
    B) Lesbians getting wasted whilst fighting over Tila Tequila.

    I couldn't even spend more than 20 minutes watching this...

    Respect to Joel for trying to do something different, but it just simply doesn't work. The audio is all washed away because they only used open air microphones, not the special ones that go clipped into your shirt. You would think someone like Joel would get some. The content is also very uninteresting, and tedious to watch. The site is only getting 10 thousand visitors per month according to Compete.com, let's see how it does.

    Hey.. picked up on this with Google alerts.

    Glad you got a chance to watch some of the show... you're a bit late to the party!

    The show ran for 13 weeks last year, starting in August 2007 and finishing in November. We ran the videos through Revver and had anywhere from 25,000 to 100,000 viewers per episode. It was disussed all over the web and we sold a ton of product as a result.

    All-in-all, it was a moderate success and one that was one of the coolest experiences of my life!

    In the meantime, we've got a couple networks that are interested in the brand, so we'll see what happens.

    BTW, the sound was the worst in episode 1. If you watch to episode 4 and beyond, we really got the hang of the technical aspects as well as the storyline. It just got better and better.

    Best,

    Joel

    Just shows you how we need BHW to become a closed community.

    PS: Joel is everywhere.

    Hey Joel. I actually watched the other episodes just now. You did improve the sound on them, and I can actually see the microhphones clipped on ha!

    Thing is, It's just not my cup of tea, but I respect all efforts for doing something different and if it drove some sales, thats what matters, isnt it?

    I did enjoy the Adsense Code tho : )
