I guess back in the 80's this would've been a good thing. Not in 2005. People are still taking fitness advice from this guy? Who? Old Ladies who grew up with him in the 80's? Not the best target audience for Sirius. Its one thing to have Martha which is a waste of money. Its another thing to pay this guy to host a show that nobody will listen to because hes a "Has BEEN".

God, you people are harsh. Fact is: Simmons makes gay men's 'gaydar' go off, too.

But are there queeny heterosexuals? Absolutely. Just check out arch-conservative Alan Keyes. Oh dear, on second thought, maybe he's not a good example!

SISO, do you actually think Simmons is a psychopath? That's the malevolent personality type associated with serial killers. Well, then. Check this out, please.

I just saw a news blurb on Niel Cavuto's program on Fox News about Simmons going to Sirius. This surprised me as I didn't think it was big enough news to make the cut for TV news, but I guess I was wrong.

No, I don't think he's a psychopath (although weird, yes), the point I was trying to make was that some people see him as that, perhaps "crazy" wouldn't have been so "harsh".

I don' think he's a psychopath either. But the only time he's entertaining is when he's the butt of jokes. Thats why we don't see him on Stern or Letterman anymore - he wants to be taken seriously... I think.

I think it would easier to take a rubber chicken seriously over (or under ) him, unless of course you're seriously laughing your ass off.

He isn't going to have a channel, he is only going to have a show. The web site is pretty clear about that.

"The show will often broadcast from his Beverly Hills weight loss center, SLIMMONS, with a live studio audience."

I personally don't see this bringing subscribers, but hey, whatever floats Sirius boat.

My first thought is that the show is probably going to be painful, but I'm sure Sirius got him for next to nothing.

Think about it though, he's an established name and he's quite a character. I bet the PR people are going to have him appear on every television show they can. Who knows maybe people will be half interested and get a sub to check it out.

When I think of Richard Simmons, I always remember him as the "man" that made fat women cry.






Chad's fact of the day:


Richard Simmons shares a birthday with SIRIUS's own Jay Thomas.

(Jay and Richard haven't spoken to one another in over 10 years.)

He's up on the Sirius front page in all the official Glory. Starts in October, just in time for Holloween?

That probably would be a good channel. But I think he fits right in Martha Stewart Channel or OutQ!
