    Extreme Cheapskates - new TV show

    I read in the NY Times that there will be a new reality show based on the success of the Extreme Couponing show. This one will show cheapskating tactics. I don't care about couponing but cheapskating fascinates me. For once, I wish I had cable just to check it out.

    I like the guy who they interviewed in the link. He has written books that are fascinating and did tours on his bike around the country to promote them. A very interesting man, and I look forward to the show. thanks.

    I like Jeff Yeager's books, though they are kinda preaching to the converted for this board I only hope he tones down the creepy sexual innuendo for the TV show. That's the only thing that takes away from his writing imho.

    Yes, that's what I thought when I read one of his books recently. The remarks about his aunt's bust, etc, were entirely out of place.

    Are they just doing like extreme frugal? I always thought cheapskate had more of a negative edge to it.

    His aunt's bust? I guess I missed those parts.

    You know, I was thinking of a similar program but on being frugal instead of cheapskate. I will watch it and see what's going on...I wonder if they'll have our frugal star Amy D.!?
