We just finished two rehearsals of CNET Live, the new call-in show that premieres Thursday April 12 at 4 p.m. Eastern time. It's weird to rehearse a live show. For instance, Suzy Brannon, one of our product managers, filled in for tomorrow's guest Justin.TV. She wore a baseball cap and had to sit forward in her chair as if she had a backpack on.
Also, Brian and I had to come up with millions of ways to say things without blowing our best stuff in practice.
I think the best part was when we took a call from Neha's mom. She asked about building a gaming machine for her son. It made the rehearsal feel more real to have an Indian woman call in to ask about hot gaming rigs!
We'll be running through things a few more times before tomorrow afternoon, but it's live, folks, so expect the unexpected and send us your questions (list your phone number too!) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then watch CNET TV tomorrow.
Looking forward to tomorrow.
