Share Article

Live Internet TV network will add more late night star power with the irreverent and flamboyant talk show host best known for "Cheaters."

ManiaTV.com has signed a deal to pick up episodes of the wacky and controversial Jack E. Jett show, The Queer Edge, which is currently airing internationally on Canada's OUTtv and Australia and New Zealand's Select-TV networks. Showing on ManiaTV.com's live network, M-F at 1am EST, The Queer Edge promises to be a zany, sexy, comedy show filled with visually stimulating segments and outrageous guests. ManiaTV.com will premier the show with a two hour special on Halloween beginning at 1am EST. The decision to have Jack E. Jett follow two of ManiaTV's top rated late night shows, Tom Green Live and Wassup accomplishes VP of Programming Richard Ayoub's goal of packing the late night hours with celebrities and comics who attract viewers by the tens of thousands.

Jack E. Jett, the award-winning television producer and former host of the popular syndicated reality program "Cheaters" will have guests ranging from dwarf strippers to Sandra Bernhardt to fire manipulators to cult heroes to cross dressers who sell Tupperware. In an effort to show that the word "queer" is more that just a term for gays, host Jett introduces viewers to personalities on the cutting edge. "We're not going after Gwyneth Paltrow or those actory types," he explained from his production offices in Dallas, Texas. "We prefer to interview the eccentric, bizarre, kooky, 'queer' people."

"We've done it again," said VP of Programming Richard Ayoub. "We have given a time slot to a funny lunatic with complete creative control and the result is comic genius." "Jack E. Jett is the second show starring an internationally recognized celebrity on our network and this is just the tip of the iceberg."

"We are seeing exponential growth in viewers during our evening and late night programming. The youth and young adult markets are clearly exchanging their remotes for their keyboards but remain interested in great TV entertainment, " said ManiaTV! CMO, Peter Clemente. "With the addition of Jack E. Jett following Tom Green and Johnny School Bus, we are securely positioned as the leading destination for those who want to watch premium television programming and interact with their favorite shows online. What we're offering is truly an immersive entertainment experience viewers won't find anywhere else on the planet."
