Save 3 Sheets!

Believe it or not, it's December 1st (excuse me for the week-long hiatus). If you have HD TV, you may have been among the many lucky ones to get the channel MOJO. I say "have been" because as of today, the network is gone...if you tune into whatever channel you used to watch it on, you will see a message saying that it has "ceased operations."

MOJO, an HD-only network, was much like Spike TV...programming mainly targeted for men: drinking, sports, technology, gambling, etc. By far, the best program on the channel was a show called Three Sheets. The show involves an eccentric host by the name of Zane Lamprey, who travels around the world and learns (and thus educates the viewer) about drinking traditions in whatever city he is visiting. He tries new drinks, find out about how they're made and always tries a new hangover ritual in each episode. It's informative, interesting and above all, funny. The best thing about the show is Zane Lamprey's personality.

Without its home network however, Three Sheets has no home. Logically, I would think Spike TV would pick up this show, which has 15 new episodes ready to go with 5 in the works...but as of yet, no network has grabbed at the opportunity. Well, if you're a fan, or if you're eager to check out the show after reading my awesome summary, you can go to this site and fight for Zane's right to party...and make a living while doing it.

Fight for Zane! As he put it, don't let him become "that guy who used to host that drinking show."
