    Nothing big, but Dave is mentioned in Entertainment Weakly[sic]'s article "EW Explains How to Fix TV". They suggest that Dave get his own TV show.

    Here's the text:

    "With a nation suddenly mesmerized by an aging heavy metal legend, the timing is ripe to reintroduce the ultimate rock idol: Diamond Dave. Instead of giving him a reality series, though, Fox should shtick him and his outrageous sound bites in a sitcom. He could play an '80s game-show host on the comeback trail, aided by a freako publicist (swipe Andy Dick from MTV) and a skeptical network suit (Patrick Warburton, as deadpan salt to Dave's pepper). Guest-starring as the rival network's No. 1 game-show host? Hello, Sammy Hagar!"

    How original--think they were watching the Hot For Teacher video before coming up with the game show idea?

    I'd tune in!

    Not a bad idea but I'd rather see Roth do something like 'The Osbornes'. Have a camera follow Dave throughout the day. Simple but it would be a riot.

    Amen to this. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] Dave may unremittingly recycle his material onstage, but it'd be a blast to see dave's reactions to normal, everyday things.

    There's a little process called "editing".
