It Was a Thing on TV: Episodes 408, 409 & 410 - The Colts/Broncos TNF Game from 2022/Monday Night Football Booth from 2008-2010/That (Awful) Quiz Show
This week on It Was a Thing on TV we celebrate the return of football and look at a truly (awful) quiz show.
First, we look at a game from last year that was so bad that we had to cover it for the podcast right away. What happens when two veteran QB's get traded to different teams in a marquee match-up in the debut season of Thursday Night Football on Prime Video? You get this epic crapfest.
Then, there have been many legendary characters behind the mic in the 50+ year history of Monday Night Football, from Howard Cosell to Frank Gifford to Joe Buck and Troy Aikman nowadays. For a brief period, the announcing crew consisted of the highly capable and competent Joe Tessitore and two people wet behnd the ears--the fish-out-of-water Jason Witten, and the human obstruction known as Booger McFarland.
Finally, Greg and Mike talk about an obscure show which ran very briefly in the early 1980s, hosted by a pair of brothers whose biggest claim to fame was being the shortest pair of twins in the world. The pair made some appearances on movies and TV, including a segment on Real People, which was apparently enough to give them this (awful) hosting gig.
