I fucking LOVE this show. I have watched every episode at least twice.

If you told me a few years back that my favorite TV show would be about mildly famous people playing poker, I would have called you a big liar.

I haven't seen it, but it seems like it'd be more appealing than those shows where they put mildly famous people in a house together. At least here you're watching them do something kinda cool.

I love it too.

Is Dave Foley actually hammered or is that how he talks now?

I watch it sometimes, but they're all just so terrible at poker, it makes it difficult.

I'm hooked on the show too. I'm not sure I like Hellmuth as a co-host yet. Love him as a player, not yet sold as a co-host.

I miss the other guy. It's like when Mike replaced Joel on MST3K. :(

I was bummed when Kevin Pollack left. Don't get me wrong, I love Dave Foley, but something about Pollack really worked on that show for me.

He was only on for a season too.

I could have sworn it was 2, but maybe that's because I watched that first season about 100 times.

It's a great show but I kept losing track on who won and lost. I don't even know if they had a final winner either.

Still a very entertaining show. My fav player is Jason Alexander.

I've only seen part of an episode, but it was hysterical.

Jennifer Tilly was on, and the hosts were commenting about how her chips were "stacked" and Dave Foley mantioned how her pile was very phallic. I spit Pepsi through my nostrils on that one!

It is amazing how un-douchey Phil Helmuth can be when he's not actually playing.
