Gizmodo Gets a TV Show

Gizmodo, the tech blog from Gawker Media, is coming to your TV sets. On Monday, March 18th, at 10:20 pm, “Gizmodo: The Gadget Testers” will debut on BBC America. The hour-long special will feature gadget reviews (duh) and is hosted by Joel Johnson, Greg Foot, OJ Borg and Veronica Belmont. Joe Brown, editor of Gizmodo, will also be making an appearance.

The downside of the program is that the stuff being analyzed is a bit dated. Johnson explained why:

Now if you’re reading this, I’m certain you’re going to notice a few things about this show. For one, the gadgets we’re testing are a few months out of date. That’s because we shot most of the it before CES. If we were to make more of these—a television series, let’s say—turning production around faster would of course be a priority.

As it is a pilot, the site needs people to watch in order for more episodes to be picked up by BBC America. So, if you’re a fan of Gizmodo and what they do, why not tune in? Who knows, if this show gets the nod, maybe it will lead to a Deadspin show hosted by Manti Te’o.

Let’s Talk About Sex(y) Female Bloggers!

miss_america.jpgApparently it’s the time of year where everyone chooses their favorite female blogger based on the always venerable quality of sex appeal! First off Playboy.com is asking you to help them choose the web’s hottest woman blogger. The lucky winner will get the opportunity to pose for Playboy. Yep. Currently video blogger Brigitte Dale (who apparently is of legal age regardless of what her picture might suggest) is riding high (no pun intended) with 27% of the vote, amongst a group that includes Amanda Congden, Violet Blue and Veronica Belmont.

Meanwhile(!), via FishbowlLA comes word that the folks over at URLesque.com have chosen the twenty women bloggers they’d most like to see in a bikini. Amanda Congden also appears on this list, along with HuffPo’s Olivia Zaleski and Jezebel’s Tracie Egan, but topping it off is LA Times blogger Christie St. Martin. For those of you who would prefer a slightly less naked round-up, NorthxEast has just posted a list of its “Fifty Most Influential ‘Female’ Bloggers” included here are the likes of Ana Marie Cox, Michelle Malkin, Rachel Sklar and Arianna Huffington, who ranks second.
