With Jackie out of the HQ for the foreseeable future while in Australia. He also won’t be on the show for the next couple months. It’s actually not an unprecedented event to see Steve without his partner in crime. So to give you a taste what we’re all in for, here’s the last time Steve went solo. On this vintage episode, Steve has to fend for himself without Jackie. But the show starts with Jackie interviewing world renowned relationship expert Dr. Guy Grenier. Following that, Steve helps guys try to pick up women with a good car by visiting the Car Wall. Then Steve previews the UWO USC Presidential election that was eventually won by the evil Stephen Lecce. After the break, it’s entertainment complete with the single of the week. Sports and entertainment are briefly hybrided with a rundown of the Super Bowl 42 commercials. Next are some quick Valentine’s tips… That aren’t exactly great as is typical for The Lowdown. The show wraps up with the return of Oddsmakers. Classic Lowdown greatness that is often imitated but never, ever duplicated.
Tonight’s episode of The Lowdown didn’t have one of the trademark feature segments but it’s still one of the best this season. The show kicked off with Jackie and Steve breaking down some of the top new TV shows launched this season. On the news, the guys talk strip hockey, the origins of kissing, and Orwell’s 1984. In entertainment, Jackie goes acoustic for his single of the week. Meanwhile, It Came From YouTube features the acapella stylings of Christopher Walken. The sports game of the week is Toss Up which covers sports, politics, entertainment and all points in between.
On The Lowdown Extra, the TV talk covers every single new show that debuted this season on US network television. No matter how good or bad it is, the guys tell you exactly what they think. The news features a couple of stories about love gone horribly wrong. Jason DeRulo wins this week’s honour of being the worst of music. Sports features added banter and some more Toss Up questions.
