    Call For Help seemed to be mostly re-runs the last couple weeks. Then Pirillo was on Thursday saying he was filling in for Leo, knew something must have been happening.

    Great news!

    Now if they can only get him back on The Screensavers. That new show intro is horrendous. Bring back the convertible! [​IMG]

    Leo had already left The Screen Savers to cut down on his workload, thus he won't be coming back to that show.

    I have to agree about the intro. They could at least have the regulars doing something, I don't know, interesting?

    Show Patrick going after something with the hammer, Kevin breaking into the Pentagon, Sarah with a riding crop and wearing latex... Oops, I may have said too much.

    I don't watch tech TV very often but I always did enjoy Leo Laporte, good to see he's back at least in some capacity.

    Sort of. The network wanted him to give up some stock options because of the sale to Comcast.

    To be honest I'd rather see him on the Screen Savers then Call for help but I am happy he is back....good god Prillo & the other fellow were horrendous!

    ...I guess this is a matter of taste but Prillo is such an annoying whiny nerd.

    If it's a matter of taste, then you and I share similar tastes...

    I actually enjoyed the guy they had on there a year or so ago, the "friendly nerd." He was excellent, and it took me a while to get into Leo doing it (I only got Tech TV about a year and a half ago).
