Save Three Sheets: The Rally

MOJO HD went off the air on December 1st. Aside from ending my run of weekly Beer Bucket List entries (more on that at the end of this article) that means no new Three Sheets. No more Zane Lamprey or his faithful sidekick, Pleepleus.

As of this moment no network has picked up this amazing global pub crawl with the funniest host on television. Why? No clue other then to say that television execs are obviously stupid. Just look at all the moronic programming (i.e., "reality" programs like dancing with the hasbeens and other "talent" shows) that saturates the airwaves.

Well, Zane is holding a rally... and a party.

On Tuesday, December 16th Zane will personally lead a protest march to SAVE THREE SHEETS! As is typical with Zane this is far more than just a protest march. It's a pub crawl as well! Here's the deal:

  • It will take place in Century City, California, and march to and from Beverly Hills... because that's where all the decision makers are. As poor as these maker's of decisions seem to be, they are still the one's who must see the march and hear the wails and laments of 3S fans.
  • Zane will also be doing the same thing in New York City on Thursday, December 18th! You can see all the details, locations, etc, on Zane's website.
  • These rallies are free. It'll only cost you as much as you want to spend on drinks during the pub crawl.
  • "Save Three Sheets" t-shirts will be available on Zane's website. He's going to make them as inexpensive as possible. They will also be available at the rallies until supplies run out.
  • Everyone who attends will receive a THREE SHEETS shot glass signed by Zane.
  • Feel free to make signs and banners. Let your voices be heard!

Below is the official press release that went out today:


Popular Travel and Drinking Show Host Calls All Fans to Send a Message

(December 9, 2008) LOS ANGELES- Zane Lamprey, host of the fan-favorite television series Three Sheets, is hosting a rally on Tuesday, December 16, 2008 in Los Angeles and in New York on Thursday, December 18, 2008 to save his beloved show. The show, which previously aired on the MOJO HD channel, needs to find a new network to air its next season. Rallies being held in Los Angeles and New York City are an effort to draw attention to the show's popularity and convince television executives to place the program on their network.

To help save their favorite show from extinction, hundreds of Three Sheets fans will join Lamprey in Los Angeles as he leads the march from Century City to Beverly Hills, passing the buildings that house the executives with the power to put the show into their television line-up. The rally, which will also be a three-stop pub crawl, will begin at 3pm at Rock Sugar in the Westfield Century City Mall (10250 Santa Monica Blvd, Century City, CA 90067). The group will march east towards Beverly Hills for a second stop at Siniqual (9595 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90210) around 4:30pm. The final stretch will lead them back to Century City at Pink Taco (10250 Santa Monica Blvd, Century City, CA 90067) for a post-rally party around 6pm.

Lamprey will then head to NYC to host a similar rally/pub crawl with the score of loyal east coast "Three Sheets" fans. Steve McKenna and Jim-the-Cop, two of the show's regular guest stars, will join the cause. The rally will begin with a pre-march drink at 3pm at Houndstooth Pub (820 8th Avenue at 37th) and then march up Broadway through Times Square making their second stop at Aspen Social Club (157 W. 47th St between 6th and 7th) around 4:30pm. They will continue east through Rockefeller Center and end their march at Sutton Place (1015 2nd Ave between 53rd and 54th) for a post-rally party around 6pm. New York-based mobile social network, MeetNowLive.com will be providing exclusive bar specials and a free drink ticket to each person who registers and tags their location by "broadcasting" from each bar (http://www.meetnowlive.com/three-sheets-rally).

"The networks need to stop looking at Three Sheets at face value. It's not just a show about a guy who travels around the world and drinks," Says Zane Lamprey, host of Three Sheets. "It's more than that... I also eat. We're going to show the TV execs that this tried and proven show has a bevy of the world's most loyal, dedicated and endearing fans."

As the most recognized world drinking ambassador, Lamprey has imbibed his way through over 50 countries while shooting Three Sheets. He has acquired not only a full passport, but a wealth of knowledge about world drinking customs. He's enjoyed the finest Champagnes, oldest Scotches, and most expensive Sakes. He has downed booze strong enough to degrease an engine, danced with the green fairy (Absinthe), and bathed in a tub of beer. Lamprey not only knows how to drink, he also knows a lot about what he's drinking.

Three Sheets has aired for three seasons on MOJO HD and is wrapping up filming on season four, which includes exotic locations like Tahiti, Tanzania, Tuscany, New Zealand, Newcastle, Iceland, Poland, Lithuania and Namibia.
