Pitchmen - A Reality Series on Discovery Channel

This has got to be an April Fools joke, but I can't find anything to suggest it's not an actual new Reality Show! Why on earth do we want to watch a 13-episode series about ads/infomercials? Only in America...

Discovery Gets Lowdown on ‚€˜Pitchmen‚€™ - TVWeek - News

The series focuses on Billy Mays and Anthony “Sully” Sullivan,
Would you not like to know about the real Billy Mays that is behind that great beard? Is this the the same Sully that landed that plane in the Hudson a few months ago? I'd watch it for at least 20-30 seconds.

Billy Mays's beard is a dye job if I ever saw one. I wonder if the shamoo guy will be on the show. After he heals up that is.

Wish I still had my old "pocket fisherman" that Ron sold in the 70's. That thing was great.
