Site currently has 604 unique hits with 7 of them from Farkers. Let's watch and see what happens next.
2001-12-28 11:46:13 AM  
GrassHopper, I had the exact same idea when I went over there. Don't know Scott from Adam, but I can't wait to see the site Farked. 611 when I was there.

Cool. SUpport the suporters. He's not athletic is he? Get it? Athletic supporter? I think I just crapped my pants. Mommy...
2001-12-28 11:47:28 AM

I'd love to see him on a show with Rush Limbaugh, every time Rush asks him a question, Herriot pulls out a megaphone to answer him.
2001-12-28 11:49:59 AM  
why the fark did they cancel Internet Tonite?
2001-12-28 11:50:06 AM  
I'd watch that
2001-12-28 11:50:26 AM  
Anyone know who we're supposed to contact for support? CNN or the Herriot4CNN people?
Oh, 694 now
2001-12-28 11:51:39 AM  
Hardcore porn videos?
2001-12-28 11:51:44 AM  
Why isn't Scott on TechTV anymore? It's a little annoying that they keep getting rid of people, first Jessica now Scott. Who's next?
2001-12-28 11:52:45 AM  
Dalai Lama: Do you mean Michaela Pereira? Farkin' right she's hot! She used to be a model. She's currently hosting TechTV's evening TechLive show. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm . . .!!!

Did TechTV can Herriot or something? I liked him a lot better than Martin Sargent. Sargent's just too flaky.
2001-12-28 11:54:06 AM  
I'm sure that CNN is falling all over themselves to pick up this TechTV reject. Every time I saw this guy on TechTV, all he did was act silly. I realize that is the norm for TechTV, but the other goofballs spit out useful information while goofing. Scott didn't really seem to know much about anything.

Now if they will just euthanize Chris Pirilo.
2001-12-28 11:55:17 AM  
What Blubble said.
2001-12-28 11:55:40 AM  
There was a pretty informative thread on a month or two ago when TechTV laid off a large part of their staff. Scott was one of the axe-ees.
2001-12-28 11:56:36 AM  
Aaron Brown is a dork !!!!!!!!!!!
2001-12-28 11:58:20 AM  
768 hits.
2001-12-28 11:58:59 AM  
Yep, that man is a dork. He always acts like he's looking for his bottle of Vodka.
2001-12-28 12:00:09 PM  
The only show worth watching on CNN is Lou Dobbs Money Line and maybe Larry King.
2001-12-28 12:00:20 PM  
personally I always found him to be obnoxious and an asshole on the show. Though he's better than that gnome guy they've got now.
2001-12-28 12:01:03 PM  
I like the fact that the site only shows posts from herriot lovers.
2001-12-28 12:03:39 PM  
2001-12-28 12:03:56 PM  
Scott is ok...but for Jeebus' sake SOMEBODY get Jessica Corbin back on tv...anywhere...preferrably porn. :)
2001-12-28 12:04:36 PM  
[image from too old to be available]

Larry King. He looks like an owl.
2001-12-28 12:06:00 PM  
ah, cnn. Kind of the funny papers of the news world. Remember Classics Illustrated? Does this guy have a british accent?
2001-12-28 12:06:54 PM  
Aaron Brown is from Seattle. 'Nuff said. 866 hits.
2001-12-28 12:07:53 PM  
Jessica, mmmmmmmmmmmm
2001-12-28 12:13:30 PM  
Maybe Scott can get a job with al-Jazeera - you know, CNN's Middle East bureau. After all, CNN is the world apologist for terrorists. They singlehandedly served as Saddam Hussein's mouthpiece(with Peter Arnett acting as the voice box) during the Gulf war.

Naaaaaaah, I wouldn't wish that on Scott. Maybe that war-slut Amanpour, but not Scott.
2001-12-28 12:18:13 PM  
I hope I don't get put on a bunch of spam lists now!
2001-12-28 12:19:39 PM  
"1000 unique hits to date"

I should get a prize.
2001-12-28 12:23:05 PM  
Reading this article makes me wish I gave a shiat.
2001-12-28 12:36:11 PM  
TechTV fired Harriot (even though he had been with them since the network went live, is the only funny person on the damn lineup) after they apparently found out they were losing money (which is also why the 8 hour show, TechLive was cut back to like one hour, which is aired a few times at night now). He was one of the first to go. Jessica is still on staff, Herriot is not.

Martin was better when The Screen Savers had him as an occassional filler, and it wasn't that popular. Since he had his "geek makeover", he hasn't been as funny. He should have stuck with the hippie-i-live-in-my-parents-basement look.
2001-12-28 12:37:29 PM  
I think Sumi Das was a lot hotter with short hair. She's still pretty hot now tho
2001-12-28 12:37:35 PM  
techtv was better when it was owned by Ziff Davis, too. Atleast they knew how to run a farking tv network without losing cash and firing the good people
2001-12-28 12:38:26 PM  
2001-12-28 12:40:54 PM  
Das and Pereira are smokin'. Internet Tonight was my favorite TechTV/ZDTV show. I don't watch it much at all now. Also, Gamespot was way cooler than Extended Play. Why did they hire those two freaks to host the show? Sad, very sad.
2001-12-28 12:41:56 PM  
I meant I don't watch TechTV much now.
2001-12-28 12:44:37 PM  

I just hope nobody from TechTV decides to fire Sumi Das or Magen.
2001-12-28 12:44:47 PM  
While I think Scott Herriot was great on Internet Tonight, I regret to say that he doesn't belong on any hard news program. Too goofy.
2001-12-28 12:59:44 PM  
Drew et. al. - I like the fake ads!
2001-12-28 1:01:08 PM  
Did anyone click the link to advertise with fark? TotalFark? What's that?
2001-12-28 1:02:05 PM  
I enjoyed Scott as the comic relief on the Screen Savers' "house call" segments, never much got into Internet Tonight. Still, I'll pull for getting him a job on CNN...

I'm just glad they kept Megan around, for obvious reasons.

And where the hell is Becky Worley - I always enjoyed the seething dirty looks she shot that Pirilo flake when he started hijacking Call For Help. Someone needs to put that guy down, now.
2001-12-28 1:35:14 PM  
Would you guys email IBM for me? i need a new job. Tell them i'm real good.
2001-12-28 1:37:22 PM  
Yardbird: Becky Worley is now on during the hour before Pirillo. You noticed the dirty looks, too?? heheheheh

I used to watch CFH when Leo and Becky did it. I can't stand to watch it much anymore. Pirillo drives me nuts in a matter of minutes(and I'm not talking about humor). I can't stomach it.
2001-12-28 1:52:14 PM  
Dunno why everyone's so hot over Megan. It's Morgan that's got the great set of jugs. Just wish she'd do something with that Gawd-awful hair of her's though...
2001-12-28 1:55:25 PM  
seriously...morgan is the hottie in the group. what happened to jessica anyway?
2001-12-28 2:08:41 PM  
What happened to him on Tech TV? Did he get canned, or did he quit?
2001-12-28 2:22:37 PM  
link -> farked :)
2001-12-28 2:37:56 PM  
is that security guy still doing segments? i always found that painful.
2001-12-28 2:49:14 PM  
Sorry all! I hosed the DNS on Completely deleted it like a bonehead. I put it back up. Someone should fire me!
