2011 is all done

Someone asked me on Sunday how many shows we do a year. I've never counted. We don't have a season with set holidays. We just play it by ear. I just book as many Sundays as I can and away we go. But it got me thinking. When asked, I guessed we probably do 40-45 weeks a year. That is, shows with guests. The other weeks we either run comedy clips or a repeat episode. (And, okay, we're pre-empted 2-3 times a year.)

So I did the math. In 2011 we did 44 shows with 55 guests (or 53 unique guests as two were on twice). Pretty impressive, if I do say so myself. How does this compare? Well, I'm not about to count every year we've been on since 2004, but I did the past three years. In 2010, we had guests on 38 times, while in 2009 we spoke to comics 42 times. That's a lot of hours of chit-chat with comedians.
