Catch SparkGuy and SparkPeople Members on "Entertainment Tonight" Tomorrow!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

Hi everyone!
In Tuesday's Weekly Spark, we shared big news: that SparkGuy and other SparkPeople members will be interviewed on "Entertainment Tonight" today. However, we just received word from "ET" producers that this segment has been pushed to TOMORROW. You can now watch SparkPeople on "ET" on Thursday, July 23.

This Thursday, July 23, our founder Chris "SparkGuy" Downie and several amazing members who have lost hundreds of pounds will be featured on "Entertainment Tonight."

We're asking you to show your SparkPeople support by tuning in—and telling your friends to watch, too.

If you're not sure when or where you can watch "ET" in your area, check your local listings and set your DVR if you're not able to watch it when it airs.

The "ET" crew attended the Los Angeles SparkRally, part of the "Show Your Spark" Weekend that was a huge success at many locations throughout the country. We hope you can tune in to this special broadcast! Thanks for your support!

Leave a comment to let us know that you're planning to watch SparkPeople, SparkGuy and your fellow members on "ET" this Thursday

Also, please help us spread the word to other members about this change in programming. Thursday is the day! Thanks for your support.

    The segment on ET was great. It is too bad the segment wasn't longer, but they have to time everything to get everything in a limited amout of time. I didn't know there was a book. Will it be in book stores or just on Sparkpeople?

    Will the episode be available to view on SparkPeople? I recorded it on TiVo, but wanted a friend of mine to see it too.

    I was very disappointed in the coverage SP got on ET. It was little more than a sound bite. Of course they again for the thousand time bored us with more trash on Michael Jackson. I for one am not interested in any more stuff on MJ. Move on and give decent coverage to other worthwhile stories.

    I guess im not the only one who is dissapointed in "ET". i wrote a message on the boards right after the airing. Injustice to the millions of lives that have been improved i know mine has and its been less than a month! Thank you SP!!!!

    I have to say, I too was disappointed. I called family to watch it. They are amazed at how well I am doing with this program.

Please let us know when there will be another airing on t.v.

    I watched your interview on ET the ladies to spread the Spark. Although the interview was short. I believe you succeeded in spreading the word. The ladies with you on ET are the people that inspire me to keep going and not give up. Thank you for a wonderful website with support and all the information I need to be a healthy physically and emotionally.

    The segment was over so quickly, I thought it was somehow tied into the next segment on "More To Lose". The heavyweight version of the "Bachelor".
I agree more could have been said about Sparkpeople but then again, I'd be preaching to the choir.

    I agree with the comments on here. ET did an injustice to SP. SP is a phenomenal site. I learn more and more what it can do daily and each new thing I find gets me motivated all over again.

    I watched the show and wish ET had done a little better job. There are so many people who could benefit from this site. I love it and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to lead a more healthy lifestyle. Keep up the good work!

  The SPARKPEOPLE segment on ET was a huge disappointment. If I had blinked more than once I would have missed it. SPARKPEOPLE deserves
a better shake than that.

    I was so looking forward to watching this segment on ET tonight. What there was of it was interesting but ET skimmed over it so quickly; it was gone before I realized it. I would have liked to learn how SP all got started by it's founder.....The only information that was really presented was...there was a website out there that helped people loose alot of weight.....somewhere out there........and that was about it........Credit was not given where it was due. Too quickly done and hurried over.

    I think that SP was wronged. The piece seemed less than a minute.

    I must say, I was hugely disappointed. The story seemed truncated, and then segued into the reality show More to Love! I think ET gave Sparkpeople short shrift. SP has done so much for so many and it deserved better than the brief mention by ET. I hope this is just the start of the media coverage of this fantastic website, and I hope the next time SP is featured on TV, there is time devoted to exploring the founding of the website, the numerous resources, and the thousands of success stories.

    I wish I had known this yesterday. Then I wouldn't have had to sit through the dreck of Michael Jackson's nose and Jessica Simpson's lack of makeup and Animals Who Attack.

I will be watching tonight, though. The things I put up with because of my love of Sparkpeople...
