    I kind of remember the Gong Show. Maybe GSN will run a few of them if it has the rights.

    The Gong Show was one of the most hilarious shows ever. I guess they were coked up.

    RIP, Chuck, thanks for the laughs.

    Aside: I wonder if 3 Chucks will die this week? Look out, Norris.

    The Gong Show was one of those rare programs that was, literally, so bad it was good!
