I Hope Ricky Gervais Does It


Ricky Gervais' blog without permalinks contained this gem yesterday.

I've had one of my big ideas.
What do you think of this?
A live 3 hour podcast during The Golden Globes. Me and a few chums (like Louis CK, Chris Rock, Karl Pilkington, John Stewart, Larry David popping in and out) doing our own alternative commentary.
People at home can have the telly on with the sound down listening to us online say things that no broadcaster could get away with.
No one could do a fucking thing.
The biggest live webcast ever? Who knows? Who cares? What's fun is the shit we might come out with. No money. No sponsor. No guide lines. Fuck me I can't wait.
Maybe I'll do a non-broadcast practice with The Emmys to see if it works. I'll let you know.

I hope he does it.  It could be amazing.  It reminds me of the time Howard Stern tweeted while a local station aired Private Parts.

If Ricky did this, which audio would you choose: telecast or podcast?
