Late Night with Conan O’Brien - The Walker Texas Ranger Lever

Kevin Perry2 Comments


When NBC bought the (highly coveted?) rights to Walker, Texas Ranger, Conan devised a way to incorporate the western police drama into Late Night. How did he do it? With a giant lever, of course!

The Walker, Texas Ranger lever is a magical thing. You can pull it any time — day or night — and view a 15-second clip of Chuck Norris's goateed brilliance as he deals with bear traps, fist fights, headbutts, unopened parachutes...well, just watch.

Seven’s National Bingo Night isn’t actually a bingo night at all!

 Your bingo numbers didn’t come up last night? I’m not surprised. Just when you thought you've seen it all on the small screen, television reached a new low when Channel Seven launched its deceptive and misleading National Bingo Night program. It's the bingo night that isn't actually a bingo night at all. A quick look through the terms and conditions reveals a totally different story. The show is pre-recorded and its only then that the "gamecards" used for viewers to mark off their numbers are printed to ensure that a set number of "winners" are generated. The promoters have used loophole's in state trade promotion laws to avoid revealing the total number "gamecards" to be issued or made available, so the exact odds of winning a prize is unknown. But if you consider that one "gamecard" will be issued with every News Limited Sunday daily paper and that up to ten are available to download for every recipient of a Channel Seven signal, then we are looking at several million. Just 1002 prizes of $100 and one prize of $10,000 are to be won on the opening episode. Promoters refuse to reveal to OnThePunt the total number of "gamecards" issued, but we think you're odds (assuming all "gamecards" are distributed) of picking up $100 being somewhere between 1 in 15,000 and 1 in 100,000. Our advice: don't waste your time! -- by OnThePunt.com managing director Mark Cridland
