I watched SpikeTV’s/Michael Irvin’s new show 4th and Long on its first night of airing. It came on right after the 2-hour season finale of 24, so I was already in front of the TV. I semi-enjoyed watching it, but it did not leave me begging for more. So no, I have not watched it since…does anyone know if my boy Erick Jackson is still on the show?
Some people have been watching closely, though. In fact, some have watched so intently that they believe their idea was outright stolen by Mr. Irvin. Irvin is not only the host of 4th and Long, but also the producer (means he gets extra dollars). The three people filing the lawsuit wanted to call their show, which they claim Irvin reproduced on his own without permission, Guts to Glory. I actually like the sound of it more than the title currently airing on SpikeTV. But that’s besides the matter.
Just like Billy Gillispie, the plaintiffs would have been wise to at least get something down on paper signed by all parties. Relying on oral agreements is never preferable to having a written agreement stating the intentions of everybody involved. It will come down to the plaintiffs’ word against Irvin’s…and who should be believed?
