Win $50 from Cash Cab (again!), which lives on in syndication after being cancelled

The game/reality show Cash Cab was cancelled by Discovery earlier this summer, having been on the air since late 2005. However, it lives on in syndication, where its more than six years of episodes air five nights a week. (Check when it’s airing in your area.)

To remind people of the syndicated version, the show is once again offering a prize of $50 in the form of a Visa cash card to one lucky reality blurred reader. Free money! To enter, you need a U.S. mailing address, and you must do two things:

  1. Comment below. That’s your entry, and you can do this once per day until Friday. If you’re a first-time commenter, make sure you pay attention to the commenting rules.
  2. E.mail me your contact information–your name and U.S. mailing address–with the subject line “Cash Cab.” If you do not send me an e.mail message with this information, or use an e.mail address that doesn’t work, your comment entries will be invalidated, because I need this if you win to pass along to show’s representatives, who will send your prize. I won’t use that information for anything else.

You can enter once a day–again, by commenting–until July 27 at noon ET, for a maximum of six entries. I’ll randomly select one winner Friday afternoon. No purchase is necessary, et cetera, blah blah blah.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
