Local TV Notes: Hardcore Pawn Chicago vs. Hell Night vs. Check, Please!

Because it's on.

1. Dude gets outta da joint, wants his watch back.


2. "A reclusive man who lived in a central Illinois farmhouse without running water and drove a Ford truck from the 1960s nonetheless had an estate worth up to $1 million when he died last year," the ABA Journal notes.

"And 71-year-old Ray Fulk, who never married and had no children or close family members, did not die intestate. He willed the bulk of his estate to two actors he never met who were TV and movie stars in the 1980s and 1990s, the State Journal-Register reports.

"Kevin Brophy is probably best-known for his title role in the 1977's Lucan television show, in which his character was raised by wolves. Peter Barton played Dr. Scott Grainger on The Young and the Restless from 1987 to 1993. Both also had roles in the 1981 Linda Blair movie Hell Night."


3. "Over 50 Chicagoans turned out to vie for the vacant Check, Please host position [Monday] in the first round of meet-and-greets with show producers at Calo Ristorante in Andersonville," Eater Chicago reports.

Not bad. Nice tone. Easygoing. Hired!

1. From Noell Jezek:

I think the new host should be Rick Bayless because we don't see enough of this egomanical cook.
