"PitchMen"

Discovery Channel's "PitchMen!" was the show that took Billy Mays from a cult hero to a national Icon. It also made Anthony Sullivan a household name. The show was more than selling products. It was a glimpse into the risks inventors take to make their dreams come true. Here at As Seen on TV Life, we liveblogged every episode of season 2 of "PitchMen!" and, some day, we'll go back and do Season 1. We also reviewed the products displayed on the show.

Please take a moment to look over our selection of PitchMen reviews for both the show & the products and please let us know what you think. Also, if you have pictures of you and friends with Billy, Sully or any of the Sullivan Products crew, we'd love to share them for you. If not on our site, than at least on our Facebook page.

RIP PitchMen! Facebook Account.

A big thank you goes out to the crew at Sullivan Productions as well as the Mays family for giving us two wonderful seasons that helped shed a little natural light on our industry. And if we hear about any more about PitchMen or TV Shows like it, we'll be sure to let you know!

LiveBlog: Discovery Channel’s Pitchmen, Season 2, Episode 10: On a Wing and a Prayer. Check out Sully, Arwen and company as they wrap up another great season of 'PitchMen.'

To me, nothing seemed more appropriate than having the Fixit empire now in the pitched hands of Billy's best friend, infomercial king Anthony Sullivan. I'd believe it would be what Billy wanted. But you can bet, up there in heaven, Billy's looking down going, 'I wish I could have pitched the Mighty Fixit.'

LiveBlog: Discovery Channel’s Pitchmen, Season 2, Episode 8: Fighting Shape - Sully, Arwen, Kennedy and company's adventure in infomercials continue.

​We're getting bonus PitchMen's tonight! How? Well, the episode guide hasn't been updated past episode 5, and yet here we are at episode 7! The dream is still alive.

Pitchmen, Season 2, Episode 8: Fishing for Gold. This episode looks like it's going to hook our attention, our hearts, and our hopes as inventors put more on the line than their finances.

LiveBlog: Discovery Channel's Pitchmen, Season 2, Episode 6: The Cutting Edge - review of Sully, Kennedy and the Sullivan Products crew adventures in infomercial land.

LiveBlog: Discovery Channel’s PitchMen, Season 2, Episode 5. “From the Jaws of Victory.” - RoboStir, Wraptor Teeth & some jumping exercise boots...power jumps.

'This is mine to enjoy. I did it. Thank you, Sully.' - Turner 'Maybe it'll fell real on the day I don't owe anybody any money.'

Once Upon a time, Frank Sciamma was a French Firefighter who used to use to cut people out of cars with saws. When the saw he was using wasn't strong enough to save a fellow firefighter, Frank went to work, devoting the next 20 years to developing a saw that could save lives quicker.

Decompressing w/ Dr. Ho's Back Belt [Review] - (I could have said, "pimpin' ").

Posted on: 02 24, 2013 at 04:41 - {ARTICLE_FBCOMMENTS} comments

Before I'd ever use a product like Dr. Ho's Back Belt, I would consult my chiropractor - who I haven't seen in awhile. What we found is that most people wouldn't take such an approach...

[Review] NutriBullet - It's Better Than Your Blender Because???? WTF?

Posted on: 01 22, 2013 at 01:17 - {ARTICLE_FBCOMMENTS} comments

I would swear that the NutriBullet is just a Magic Bullet with a different plastic skin and fonts & iconography. I assume that if I want to make veggie smoothies I could just use a Magic Bullet, but apparently I can't. Or something like that. I'm still looking.

This is one of those times where my grandfather bought something he wanted to see on TV and it was a great idea. I went into the garage and click the switch when I realized the light-bulb didn't look like an ordinary light-bulb.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

Posted on: 08 26, 2011 at 01:58 - {ARTICLE_FBCOMMENTS} comments

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.

Before Vince came out with his copycat ShamWOW and his Time/Life operator headphones, there was a super-absorbent cloth that took care of the chills and spills your clumsy day created. And all you needed to know was that Billy Mays thought it was awesome.
