WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — The Junkies return to Comcast SportsNet for the season three premier of “Table Manners” Wednesday evening, a sit-down style interview show which stretches the realms of sports and entertainment television.

The Junkies dine with Redskins team president Bruce Allen to kick off the eight-episode third season tonight at 6:30 p.m.

Other star-studded episodes will feature interviews with linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, comedian Frank Caliendo, Maryland football coach Randy Edsall, Super Bowl-winning quarterback Doug Williams, George Washington men’s basketball coach Mike Lonergan, Capitals defenseman John Carlson and former Bullets great Bob Dandridge.

Things to look for

*Awkward Interactions

The first two seasons had its fair share of uncomfortable encounters, but none, perhaps, more cringeworthy than comparing hand sizes with ‘Skins receiver Pierre Garcon.

Also this:

And this:

There was also the time soccer Olympian Ali Krieger was asked if she’d ever pose for Playboy Magazine.


For regular listeners of the Junkies radio show, this comes as no surprise, but JP Flaim can really light someone’s ear on fire with his incessant babbling. The worst victim of this on their television vehicle, by far, was super agent David Falk, who had to listen for what seemed like minutes on end to JP explaining the Junks’ first dealings with their own agent, in radio, a completely unrelated field from basketball, the sport from which Falk made his fame and money.

*EB Absolutely Housing Some Food

See exhibit A.

All in all, whether for high-quality interviews with some of the more compelling sports and entertainment figures to come through town, or for the pure entertainment factor, season three of “Table Manners” should prove incredibly worthy of your time each week.

No need to take it from me, though. Watch one episode — tonight at 6:30 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet — and decide for yourself.
