Ba’Noodle promises to be a good test of Anthony “Sully” Sullivan’s pitchman skills. Everyone wants to keep bagged foods fresh after they’ve been opened, but would you consider buying these multicolored pipe-cleaner-meets-twist-tie strips to do the job? When I first heard the name Ba’Noodle, I swear I thought it was one of the infomercial parodies from Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job! That name is pure Cinco.
The Boardwalk Tater Tornado Maker is a hand-cranked countertop kitchen device that lets you make this tasty treat at home. You can even bake them for a healthier treat. Tater Tornado can also quickly transform other fruits and vegetables into tasty spiral snacks. This would have been a perfect product for the late Billy Mays to pitch, but instead it’s ably demonstrated by his PitchMen partner Anthony “Sully” Sullivan. “Tornado watch” the commercial spot below.
We were caught by surprise by the abrupt removal of PitchMen from its Thursday night slot on Discovery Channel, announced by the network on the Discovery Insider blog. Poor ratings seem to be the reason, as there is no mention of PitchMen in this Discovery press release trumpeting its best August ratings ever. Everyone here at As Seen On TV Video loves the show and we hope it returns soon, with better promotion from its network. If you would like to express your opinion to Discovery, you can comment here.
“Bear Market,” the PitchMen episode premiering Tuesday, January 18 at 7PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel, features new products ShaveMate and Fridge Locker. ShaveMate is a revolutionary new six-bladed razor for men and women that dispenses real shaving cream right from the handle. Fridge Locker is a plastic container with combination lock that keeps your snacks safe at home or work. In the clip below, watch as a 800 pound Grizzly Bear tries to get inside the Fridge Locker. PitchMen stars Anthony “Sully” Sullivan, who has recently opened his own online Sully Store featuring many of his products.
Anthony “Sully” Sullivan, star of Discovery Channel’s hit TV reality show PitchMen, has launched the Sully Store, a new webstore featuring products that are “Sully Approved.” According to the website,
“Anthony Sullivan approves only the highest quality, innovative and value-added products available today. Look for the Sully Approved logo to know you are getting the best possible product at the best price.
With last week’s season two premiere, Anthony Sullivan proved that Discovery Channel’s reality show PitchMen can remain compelling even without Billy Mays. The secret: make the inventors and their products the real stars. Here are two products featured on “Heart Wrench,” the episode premiering on August 26. Clean Sweep is the revamped version of Sully’s very successful Swivel Sweeper. Identity Stronghold Secure Sleeves protect your personal information from fraudsters and ID thieves by blocking the radio signal emitted by RFID chips on your credit cards, passport and other ID documents.
Pitchmen returns with new episodes this Thursday August 19 at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel. Anthony “Sully” Sullivan is still on board, but the looming question is if this reality series can retain its audience without the star power of Billy Mays. At the time of his death in June 2009, Billy was the most famous pitchman in America, and maybe the world. But Sully is a formidable talent in his own right, and has a great supporting cast to back him up (not to mention the inventors and their products – the real stars). So we want to know: Will you be watching?
The press release we’ve been waiting for. August 19 is the date for PitchMen season 2 premiere!
Season two of PITCHMEN, which returns Thursdays at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel beginning August 19, follows Anthony “Sully” Sullivan as he attempts to pick up the pieces and continue making inventors’ dreams come true after the sudden death of his longtime friend and pitch partner, Billy Mays.
Through 10 all-new episodes, Sully scours the country holding “pitch-a-thons” to give everyday inventors a shot at catching his eye with their simple solutions to common problems. Each episode will feature the good, bad and hilarious ideas that Sully comes across and will showcase the inventions from first pitch to final commercial to see if the risk pays off for the dare-to-dream inventors. From razors to wrenches, the products featured this season are more revolutionary – and, at times, outlandish – than ever before. But will they have what it takes to hit it big?
PITCHMEN, which first premiered in April 2009, is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Productions. Thom Beers, Philip D. Segal, Chris Wilson and Anthony Sullivan are executive producers for Original Productions and Chris Rantamaki is executive producer for Discovery Channel.
