I'm so excited! All of my T's (except 2) came from him. I feel like he's my T's "granpa" or something. I know, I know.... too much "anthropo-morphylizing" or whatever, but still. It's cool.
I'm so happy he has his own show. Now, there will be a surge in bug-enthusiasts! Wait! There's a downside! I foresee increased demand for slings, which makes them more expensive...hmmm... maybe I don't like this... hmmm... maybe I should try breeding.... hmmm...
So I am being a shameless promoter for a couple days

SCIENCE CHANNEL PREMIERES SNEAK PEEK OF NEW SERIES BUGGING OUT
ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, AT 9PM (ET)
-- BUGGING OUT is Executive Produced by Wilmer Valderrama and Tom Forman --
(Silver Spring, Md.) – Little is known about the exotic, creepy world of insects. The world is filled with critters so mysterious that your skin will crawl just at the sight of them. In BUGGING OUT, Science Channel invites viewers to look closer, beyond their shadowy exterior, shedding light on the fascinating scientific facts and insights that make these creatures extraordinary works of evolutionary biology. An all-new original series, BUGGING OUT is set to debut in 2011, but Science Channel is offering viewers a special sneak preview of the series on Tuesday, October 19, 2010, at 9 PM (ET).
Executive produced by film and television star Wilmer Valderrama and his WV Enterprises, along with Emmy® Award-winning executive producer Tom Forman of RelativityREAL, BUGGING OUT is a window into the science subculture of the insect world. BUGGING OUT features host, Ken MacNeil – better known as “Ken the Bug Guy” – owner of America’s largest insectaria. Ken gets the call when movie studios, television shows, events, laboratories, museums and collectors need exotic, crawly creatures. Each episode of the series BUGGING OUT follows Ken and his team as they attempt to fill the random and seemingly impossible orders from all over the world. If there is a bug Ken doesn’t have immediate access to then he’ll venture out on a “bug hunt,” an activity he holds close to his heart.
In the sneak preview, rap group Souls of Mischief desperately need at least 40 scorpions that will not harm the cast and crew for an upcoming video shoot. Ken and his team don’t have nearly enough in the bug shop so Ken organizes a bug hunt at night in a nearby park. When one night out yields few scorpions and the producers up their order for the bugs, the team must work around the clock to meet the rap video deadline.
BUGGING OUT is produced for Science Channel by RelativityREAL. Wilmer Valderrama and Tom Forman are executive producers for RelativityREAL. David Brown is co-executive producer for RelativityREAL. Christo Doyle is executive producer, and Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production for Science Channel.
