The TODAY Show saga....

As most of you probably know Sam appeared on the TODAY show twice last year. During his first appearance he was trying to explain a recipe while Kathie Lee & Hoda kept interrupting him. Well, Sam made a few comments.....

"Please Can I talk, I watch the show everyday & everyone has issues with a lot of chatter back here...pay attention one minute." (Please note the look on Kathie Lee's face...priceless)

His second appearance didn't go much better. If you never saw them you must watch & if you did they are always good for a laugh!
Will he be invited back in 2009?

Sam & the messed up pot

We shot a new viewer recipe show a few weeks ago & one of the recipes really messed up one of Sam's pots. He was struggling to clean it, but we had the camera rolling.  However, I must say this viewer recipe show was much more successful then that last one.  Check out the whole show Sunday December 21st at 5:30 & 7pm or Channel 4 & 704! Have a great weekend.

Things happen in 3's

At the last shoot we got off to a rough start. I spilled a cup of water killing a fly. Shannon (Our photographer) broke a light, and Sam spilled his bottle of water...good thing he has concrete floors! We all need help apparently :)

Sam & Michelle "have words" with eachother

So Sam & I have an ongoing dispute over his mic pack. For those of you who haven't noticed Sam's microphone pack (In TV land we call it a "Mic Pack") is ALWAYS showing! Now I wouldn't have a problem with this...I mean it is a "reality" cooking show and all. However, Sam had us order a special microphone that hides under his shirt because he didn't like the little clip on one that most TV personalities wear. I mean we have to use little band aids and stick it to his chest, all so that you can't see it. And I'm fine with that....but then he doesn't care if the big ugly mic. pack shows...what? It makes no sense and drives me absolutely nuts!

Lucky vs Lucky

This is just too funny.

Sam's dog Lucky freaks out when he sees himself on the TV. So, when we shoot a show we use Sam's TV as a monitor. We basically plug the camera into the TV so that we can watch what Shannon is shooting. On the last shoot Shannon started shooting Lucky.....see what happens when Lucky sees himself on TV.

He IS a fool...

For those of you who watched Sunday's breakfast show....you know a plate broke. Well actually the plate was "about to break" according to Sam....so he decided to break it. Well, after the plate was broken he decided to have some fun....enjoy!


Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog! For those of you who don't know me, I'm Michelle and I produce Sam the Cooking Guy. I've had the privilege to work on the show since episode #2 back in 2006....and now were on our third season! As most of you can imagine a lot of funny and random stuff happens behind the scenes, and luckily our camera is rolling for most of it. Sadly, it's only a half-hour show, so we can't always show you all the funny stuff that happens. So, when I was asked if I wanted to have a blog I thought it would be the perfect place to share some video and photos you don't get to see on the show....a sort of behind the scenes perspective if you will. I'll also post info on cool upcoming Sam events and news. If you have any questions here's a place you can ask them. Sam will even come on and Blog sometimes. Thanks for watching!

*First Big Announcement....Sam the Cooking Guy Season 1 DVD set will be on sale in time for the holidays! We are so excited and can't wait for it to come out. I'll keep you posted on when you can start ordering it and where to buy!
