For those of you who are like me, I am addicted to Hey Hey It's Saturday. I watch the show religiously every Saturday night. I will do anything on a Saturday night until after 8:30pm. My favorite segments includes Red Faces, The Nixon Tapes, Plucka Duck and Celebrity Head. For those people who are involved in putting this brilliant show together congratulations and please please please keep up the good work. Hoping the show will continue for many many years to come it's fantastic.
