TV Shows for Gadgeteers


I’m always on the looking for new geek / gadget related TV shows. There have been several over the years that have come and gone and I miss them all. Remember Screensavers on TechTV with Leo Laport? Or I Want That on HGTV? I can even vaguely remember a CNet show that would have cool gadget segments. Lately, there has been lack of any gadget news shows. That’s why I am happy to tell you about Brink on the Science channel. It’s a fairly new 30 minute show that has tech news and a do-it-yourself gadget making segment. Fun stuff, check it out! And if you know of any other gadget related shows that I need to be watching, please leave a comment!

    Good memory, Julie- that CNet show actually had a fairly famous host (not then, though- Ryan Seacrest!

      @Joe McL: Seacrest was on that show??? Wow, I don’t remember him. I do remember a blond woman… can’t think of her name. And then a guy with died Black hair with a Purple streak in it. He was the real geek.

    For a while, Seacrest was the poster boy for CNet- he hosted several shows, and you can get a glimpse from their 10th anniversary clip piece:
    I can’t remember the cable channel, but he used to host a weekly Cnet show- can’t seem to remember the name- Google turns up “the new edge”, but that doesn’t seem right.

      @Joe McL: Thanks for the history lesson 🙂
