Brendan Higgins and Kent Rathbun Go on a Man-date


Last we heard from former Channel 5 anchor Brendan Higgins, he was working on a new TV show called Wasted America. The title made me think that Hunter S. Thompson and Jack Kerouac were co-producing. I was ready for the first episode. Well, it took awhile, but I think I just saw that first episode, and instead of Wasted America the show is now called It’s Good to Have Friends With Brendan Higgins. Pardon? Now, apparently, Margaret Wise Brown is producing (that’s a Goodnight Moon joke, in case you missed it).

In the first episode, Higgins and Kent Rathbun spend a day together, taking in some of Dallas’ delights. They go to a Rangers game. They go to a Mavericks game. They stroll the Katy Trail together before hitting the Katy Trail Ice House. Then the two men repair to Higgins’ Uptown Bachelor pad, where he gets to third base with Rathbun.

Okay, I made up that last part. Actually, the show ends with Higgins scarfing pizza at Sfuzzi and telling us: “It’s good to turn up the volume on life.”

WHAT? Brendan Higgins, please explain yourself.
