Chris Hardwick's new show

Years ago, I went to high school with comedian and tech-blogger Chris Hardwick. Chris was assigned as my freshman to torture during Freshman Initiation — an institution I was not fond of, based on my own experience — but Chris turned out to have such a great sense of humor that he took what few hazing indignities there were in stride. (But it did allow me, when he was co-host of MTV's Singled Out in the 1990s, to point at the screen and tell bystanders that, yes, I made that guy on TV wear a dress. In the name of school spirit, of course...)

I graduated that year and didn't know him for very long — although my crew often frequented the bowling lanes run by his PBA star father, Billy Hardwick — but recently got back in touch after reading one of his articles in Wired. As you may have heard on this morning's Bob & Tom Show, he's got a new show on the G4 network this weekend, Web Soup — an internet-focused version of the E! Network's Talk Soup, premiering Sunday at 9 p.m. EDT. Be sure to tune in!

Update: Well, that's surreal — the first time I ever mention the Hardwick bowling lanes online, I get word that part of the plaza it's in burned down last night! Sounds like the Hardwick place was untouched, and nobody was hurt.
