Reality fodder, with a smile.
25 February 2007 | by jbass87See all my reviews

The thing I remember most about "puttin' on the hits", was how excited Alan fawcett became when reading the contestants scores. Reguardless of how poor the performance , or how low the score; Alan always had his "pearly white", cheese eating grin in full effect. What saved the show,however, were the celebrity guests. Ranging from the lovely Linda blair, to the 70's icon, Greg allman. Each, usually could be counted on to deliver a comment that made the show "almost Watchable".. The show was ahead of its time, in that, it was a reality program. Even before the term had had coined, "puttin on the hits", was turning out it weekly dose of reality fodder. A precursor to the modern reality television show.
