Default Who watches Pawn Stars?

I really love the show Pawn Stars on the History Channel. Informative, entertaining and funny. My favorite episode was with the Shelby Cobra.


Chumlee is my favorite!

Cool show, awesome personalities the folks have on that show. Also another show where they make the fat guy look like a bumbling idiot.

I don't normally follow trendy shows but I gotta admit the kids and I follow the Pawn Stars. Chumlee is a maroon though!

However, it is obviously about as staged as watching professional wrestling.

My favorite show as well. I love the history side with the militaria and weapons

I stopped by their shop in Oct while they were filming and met the cast. Super laid back nice guys. The shop is half a large as it looks on tv but still very nice I purchased and haggled some jewlery for the better half. I am in the background on one of the episodes but have no idea which one.

Cool show but the old man, son "big hoss" and chum lee are idiots.
The show is pretty interesting though, kind of like antique roadshow crossed with American chopper.

Pretty cool show and amazed at what people try and sell them.

Rick ain't no dummy either, pretty smart dude and up front with people and lets them know he is in it for a profit

Another train wreck. Will follow the implosion of American Chopper but I see it happening much quicker

I have seen it a few times. Rick seems to be the only non-idiot. Like all "reality" shows, I wonder how much reality it really is. Jeez, would you really let Hoss or Chumlee to handle more than a $1.00 or 2 at a time?

It's fun to watch, the dialog between the siblings is moronic. Learning about things I never thought about before is entertaining. But the ads will kill you. THe DVR and time shifting is your friend on shows like this.

Another question. Do you think the producers of American CHopper would actually air segments that display the shows weakness if it wasn't for the drama that emerges?
