Options September 25, 2013: The Seven Second Delay Failed Cable Pilot That Really Fails from 2000
Seven Second Delay fans, we have another very special rerun for you. Last week we heard the virgin rebroadcast of Ken and Andy’s failed cable pilot for The Metro Channel. At that point, even though they lovingly called it a failed pilot, it hadn’t yet failed. That show was well received, and broadcast on TV over and over again.

Tonight, the show that actually failed. Ken says that after the show ended, he remembers rushing over the director and apologizing for Andy’s behavior... but when he looked into the director's eyes, he knew it was over.

Tonight’s archives comes to us thanks to a cassette recording from Joe Morris. Thank you so much, Joe!

So, what happened to waiting in line at the Apple Store?
  Wed. 9/25/13 6:01pm Robert:

Can we assume the location recording Ken & Andy were supposedly making today did not go well?
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:01pm Matt from Springfield:

"7SD: We never stop at one failure!"
Hi NGH, Robert, Ange and Delayers delayed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/25/13 6:01pm northguineahills:

Are they in central holding?
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:03pm glenn:

7sd "failure delayed is failure fulfilled". or something.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:03pm Matt from Springfield:

I mean, come on! The stuff they do on radio is amazing--because it's on radio! Doing the same stuff on TV isn't--it's just normal and tedious!

so, can anyone direct me to video of failed pilot 1?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/25/13 6:05pm Ange:

I am so sad about this, but Apple store show didn't happen! When Andy got to the Short Hills mall there weren't any lines and he lost his excitement about the concept, called Ken, and called the whole thing off. RIP ABORTED APPLE STORE SHOW.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/25/13 6:07pm hamburger:

aww that sounded like the perfect set up for a show, turning up to joke around for a queue that no longer existed and trying to come up with something else..
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:08pm Matt from Springfield:

What a shame, too bad they didn't riff at another store there.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:09pm glenn:

really? i'd bet peter or david before michael.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:09pm Matt from Springfield:

I call BS! That's from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989)!

It *is* a "group prayer", in a way...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/25/13 6:10pm Ange:

@hamburger, I know! I wanted them to just go shopping for pants and get a pretzel
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:11pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ange: Aw man! Shopping for pants--that's perfect!!!
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/25/13 6:19pm Ange:

They are called the Metro Channel not Metro Cable FYI
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/25/13 6:21pm Carmichael:

If they had pitched the show to Bob Balaban, they'd have a show.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: Or at least a cerebral Christopher Guest mockumentary movie about their failure.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:27pm Matt from Springfield:

100 points, redeemable 1:1 in Zimbabwe Dollars!

@ Matt, before or after they removed 9 zeros?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/25/13 6:30pm Ange:

We miss you Hunter
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:30pm Matt from Springfield:

More memories of Hunter...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/25/13 6:31pm -max-:

RIP Hunter, you are missed.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:32pm Matt from Springfield:

@NGH: "Ahh, it doesn't matter!" :)

Hunter was fun.

The Western Hemisphere is the dancingest hemisphere of all!
  Wed. 9/25/13 6:37pm Robert:

There's something about the voice, even a lo-fi recording of it, that creates a presence that pictures don't. I got that effect from listening to audio tape of my long-dead mother, and it's the same with Hunter--even though I never met Hunter.
  Wed. 9/25/13 6:37pm Jeff:

Testing, testing, testing comments from app.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Ken got by on a technicality, it's only because more of the points went to him than me...
  Wed. 9/25/13 6:38pm Jeff:

  Wed. 9/25/13 6:39pm Robert:

The voice is just so...personal. Home movies, even if they're looking straight at the camera, don't have the same addressing-you effect. This is why radio seems so personal too. It's why Jean Shepherd, for example, complained of audience members feeling overly familiar with on-air people

Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@Robert: a picture doesn't move you as a voice does. And it's a good idea to leave a long recording of yourself for your loved ones.
  Wed. 9/25/13 6:41pm Robert:

Aw, now I'm thinking of Mother & Daddy talking to me as a baby, trying to get me to talk into the Webcor.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:45pm Matt from Springfield:

You take a chicken, and roast it, right?

Mass a chew sets!!
  Wed. 9/25/13 6:47pm Jeff:

That sounds so Boston.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:48pm glenn:

naw. they say wicked all through the atlantic provinces.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:49pm Matt from Springfield:

I guessed that from "wickkid", it seems Bostonians say that.
RMV "Registry" is a Mass. thing. Find ALL the states' idiomatic DMV names!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/25/13 6:49pm Caryn:

The "wicked sure" and accent pointed to Boston, but then she had to ask what BU stood for, so I was sidetracked to think about neighbouring areas, including Canada. Darn.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:51pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: Interesting. Wonder how that developed.

Hmm, only 9 of 50 states+DC calls theirs the "Department" of Motor Vehicles: California, Connecticut, DC, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, Texas, Vermont, and Virginia. There are a lot of "Division" of Motor Vehicles, some lesser knowns like Office, Bureau, Registry, and unique items.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:55pm glenn:

pennsylvania BORDERS on canada.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/25/13 6:57pm northguineahills:

if you count the border on Lake Erie.
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:57pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: On Canada water, but not Canada dry. Though you can buy Canada Dry in PA. Coincidence??
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/25/13 6:58pm Caryn:

Yay, got the last one correct!
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:58pm Matt from Springfield:

"That's really the end!" New 7SD motto!

Thanks Ange and encored failure Ken & Andy!
Have a good night everyone!
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:58pm glenn:

i do count the border on lake erie. why not?
Avatar Wed. 9/25/13 6:59pm Matt from Springfield:

If only Andy acted like this the whole time, might have been a shoo-in for a cable show! :)
  Wed. 9/25/13 6:59pm Robert:

I miss at least the intro to "Audio Kitchen". Lotsa found audio.
  Wed. 9/25/13 7:00pm Robert:

Matt, don't you know they always save a kick for the end?
  Wed. 9/25/13 7:01pm Robert:

Like one perfectly awful show they did from a rest stop on the GSP, but at the end Ken made me laugh with, "You spilled the man's drink, you made the baby vomit...we're outta here!"
