This crazy ass episode was supposed to be dedicated to the idea of getting in shape. What it became about was CHAOS. We knew we were in trouble when our prep time was double booked and we basically had 30 minutes to set up an entire episode. From there, there were problems with the phones, there was confusion on the floor - no joke, the buttons fell off of the control board during this episode. Totally nuts! The good news is, it lead to a fun, loose episode. The panic on stage helped keep things alive and fun. Perhaps most importantly, The Toys and Tiny Instruments tore the fucking roof off of the show. Coming in a close second, we got a very bizarre call from a five year old. On top of all THAT, we launched the show's Weight Loss Challenge. Chris, Shannon, Bethany, Jesse, Murf, Dru, Rob Malone, Random Dan, Omar, and Bill all weighed in, and our old friend PJ stopped by the studio to teach us exercises we can do at home. Between all the activity, the great music, the bizarre calls, and the technical mayhem, this was a night to remember.
