    I miss him on Saturday nights. His trailer park era was best, but when he moved to that apartment scenario things went downhill. Still I wish he was still on. I know he stil runs the joe bob report website, but...

    I even miss him introducing those televangelist clips on The Daily Show, as well. He used his real name (John Bloom) for that gig.

    Joe Bob kicked ass. I used to listen to a radio spot that he did call Joe Bob's drive in movie review. Rented a few movies from his recommendations and they were great. Loved him on TNT, what the hell was their problem anyway. They need him back, they kinda suck now.

    I echo the sentiment. He was the highlight of my Saturday night.

    Yeah, I definitely miss him. Mainly the Monster-Vision days and not the later stuff they had him doing. I wish TNT would bring him back and mix some quirkiness back into the network. This "we know drama" crap just doesn't work [​IMG]

    Yes. Especially for the pre-show rundown of the sex & violence: 2 gun deaths, 6 zombie victims, many dismembered zombies, 1 chainsaw scene,...

    He used to do the quick rundown of a movie when he was on the radio. I forgot all about that, 2 machete's to the head, 3 severed arms, 5 nekkid breasts, etc...
