TV Note: 'Weakest Link' in town

Tuesday, June 12, 2001

By Rob Owen, Post-Gazette TV Editor

Want a chance to be called the Weakest Link of Pittsburgh? Some Pittsburghers might get that honor (or would it be dishonor?) if they choose to audition for NBC's "Weakest Link" game show beginning at 10 a.m. June 19 and 20 at the Omni Hotel Pittsburgh, 530 William Penn Place.

Prospective contestants must be 18 or older. Those auditioning will be assigned a number for admission to the audition later in the day. Only a finite number of people can be accommodated for the audition, so potential contestants are urged to arrive early, according to a release from the "Weakest Link" production office.

Anyone with further questions can call to hear about auditions in a recording at 800-416-9191 or to speak to a live person at 818-840-7664.

Gay pride programs

WQED will air several programs in recognition of Gay Pride Month throughout June. The programs include:

"Gay Bingo" (10 p.m. Thursday): A humorous look at America's favorite game, complete with drag queens, big winners and cash prizes. This one-hour documentary follows a year in the life of the monthly benefit for Philadelphia's AIDS fund.

"In the Life" (12:30 a.m. Sunday): The newsmagazine devoted to gay issues focuses on gay pride this month.

"Scout's Honor" (10 p.m. June 21): A documentary about a 12-year-old Boy Scout who launched a campaign to overturn the Boy Scouts' policy against admitting gays.

"Our House: A Very Real Documentary About Kids of Gay and Lesbian Parents" (5 p.m. June 24): This program offers an in-depth exploration of what children experience in five gay or lesbian-headed families, as told through the children's eyes and that of producer/director Meema Spadola, an adult daughter of a lesbian mother.

Pee-wee's big game show

Paul Reubens (a k a Pee-wee Herman) hosts a new ABC game show, "You Don't Know Jack," based on the computer game of the same name.
