The Evolution of Joe Rogan

Joe Rogan has evolved.

From Taekwondo black belt to his best known roles as a supporting actor in the 90’s NBC sitcom News Radio and as the host/ringmaster of the same networks’ ridiculous reality show sensation top rated show Fear Factor, Rogan’s career has already been a resounding success.  But after the end of Fear Factor and starring in the failed reboot  of the man show with fellow comedian Doug Stanhope, the actor/comedian/game show host was faced with a decision stagnant on his successful known path while waiting on the next project or evolve.


Its Blake’s world

Los Angeles Clippers rookie forward Blake Griffin caught a pass out of the sunroof of a 2011 Kia Optima from teammate Baron Davis. Griffin easily dunked while the Crenshaw Select Choir sang “I Believe I Can Fly” at midcourt.

“The Saturday night broadcast delivered 8.1 million total viewers, 5.1 million households and a 4.4 rating, Time Warner Inc.’s TNT said in an e-mailed statement today. That’s 49 percent more than last year and 23 percent more than 2009, which set the old record for the 26-year-old event.”

“Viewership peaked at 10.4 million for Griffin’s winning shot. The rookie took a pass through the sunroof of a Kia Optima from Los Angeles Clippers teammate Baron Davis as he leaped over the hood of the car to deliver a two-handed dunk.” – via Bloomberg
