This evening The Ticket broadcast a Ticket-produced shows with an all-chick lineup.
Not chicks talking sports.
Chicks talking relationships.
Chicks talking things of chick-heavy interest.
The five minutes I heard did not reflect well on the dos equis chromosome people.
It was not clear to me that these were Ticket Chicks in the sense of promo-event-enhancing Ticket Chicks. But it was clearly a Ticket-produced showgram.
Maybe, as someone suggested below, it's a bit -- and given some of what was said, and in particular the Texas-flavor valley-girl patois, it's not out of the question.
I tried to catch the name of the show right at the end. But all the chicks said it in unison and I didn't catch it. It isn't on the Ticket website. At first I thought it was the "Happy Hour," since they called that hour by that name a couple of times, but I gather that was just a part of the show.
However, this site does try to be fair. If this is going to be on again, I'll try to catch the whole show. Perhaps it has some merit. Perhaps I will learn something. Perhaps I will discover the cure for ankylosing spondylitis.
And perhaps no one much listens to The Ticket on Sunday evenings, so the CTO was taking a flyer on something way different. I'm not opposed to that. And chicks are of interest to guys. Guys say they want to know what chicks are thinking about guys. So this maybe wasn't such a stretch. Maybe we should give it a chance.
Early reviews by Confessors, however, are unmixedly negative:

WHO DECIDED TO GIVE TICKET CHICKS THEIR OWN SHOW?
Seriously, I want to cut out my ear drums right now.
What in Sam Hill is going on at the station right now????? It's 7:32 pm on 12/8/13, and there's a gaggle of hick chicks talking all eat, love, and pray meets Dr. Phil "let's get real" like. This is awful. They're talking about Pam flippin' Anderson's hair. "I'm Tori and 31 and blond. I went blond from brunette last Christmas..." "Blonds are not stupid!" "It's like you need to call all your like um guy friends next. We all are gonna tell you all how to get a new girl..."
Thanks a lot, Cat. Genius move. Let's see: You have Ty, TC, Machine, Fahey, Newbury, and others. . . . .and this is how you use time that could go to a deserving JV team????? Brilliant, man. Just brilliant.
Indict me as guilty since as soon as I read your post I tuned in. That was so awful, I kept listening until a break. It is so terrible, it is nearly addictive. It was Cuban/Dallas CAN advertisement bad.
However, I wonder if it could be a bit or a test for Corby as the white noise those women are providing is EVERYTHING which he rails against on-air. But since they talk about events four days later, it might be a segment after drydock.
Back to Sunday Night Football
1. Your car is important to them. Your choice of car reflects the "real you." A white GMC pickup = Maturity.
2. Cleanliness = Maturity.
3. Smell Good. Not clean, but good. Cologne = Maturity.
4. The Right Shoes. Preferably Italian Leather or Cowboy Boots.
5. Hang out at Bars, Often.
6. Wear a buttoned-up Oxford Shirt.
7. If you are a Frat Guy, say you are not. Even though all of the above describes every Frat Guy there ever was since the late-80s. Paradoxically, being an "Independent" constitutes being a loser.
8. Compliment women. But not overly so. Don't say they're hot. It means you are superficial. It means you only like their looks, not the person herself. The Criteria stated in 1-7, is not, I repeat, is not, superficial.
Thank you, Cat, [REDACTED].
Yeah. I would really like to hear what any host thinks of this. Only problem is, probably not a one of them heard it. Anyone tweeting the thing so it might have come to someone's attention, like Town Crier Grubes?
Let's just remember, it's Sunday night. A radio wasteland. Who knows, maybe those chicks paid to do that show, like George DiGianni. By the way, did anyone hear a sponsor for the thing? As I said, the five minutes I heard -- I mean, I actually stared at the radio as though it had answers -- were train-wreckish, but I tuned in Ben & Skin again after the first five minutes I heard of their show, so I I'm willing to try a larger sample size.
If I remember, I'll try to tune in next week. If anyone knows when the show started, and it's name, let me know.
