TACS starts from the poker table where (long haired) Anthony talks with Jim Florentine about being on Louie, getting submitted for an Emmy, “upper deckers,” being cool back in the day, music now and then, things they’ve done for gals, the early days of MTV, and Jim tells us about the worst decision he’s EVER made. They get into awful movies, being crotchety, winning (or lack thereof) in relationships, “mature” musicians, living the rock life, scandalous sex, strippers, local strip clubs, stripper sex, shitty old jobs, and shitting in weird places. Jim and Ant talk about past construction jobs, work vans, the old days of stand-up comedy, Bob Levy and Rich Vos in the 90’s, club owners, Big Jay Oakerson, drunks in comedy clubs, friends in cars, drinking in cars, and That Metal Show. Jim talks about exposing his son to the metal lifestyle and after a brief “cum chat,” Bobo explains his Fan Duel strategy, the guys then yap about “deflategate” and Tom Brady, Brett Farve’s phone, Reggie Jackson, censorship and apologies, Amy Schumer, shitbag media outlets, Donald Trump, and presidents folding on issues.
Ant starts the show with the pros/cons regarding his new iPhone and recaps Colin Quinn’s appearance as well as his show at Governor's. Unfortunately, there’s a blackout at the house so he joins us via Rat’s phone from his dining room in the dark. Keith gives us an update on Ant’s upcoming trip to L.A., we hear about a new Ebola scare, see little Beavis, and since there is no way to take phone calls (thank god), Ant reads Twitter feedback. We hear about yet another apology in the news, a teen that killed his mom, cops gone wild, and discuss race relations between cops and civilians. Ticket University helps @HummerJon get unblocked and while the power returns, the show continues outside of the studio. Ant reads a list a Nebraska school put out on how to be “gender neutral,” shows us a Russian “Live Leak” video, tells us how Russians feel about gays, Keith chimes in to tell us a “sucking and fucking” cop story, and the show wraps up for the week with a little “throwback Thursday” action via an old commercial.
***Note: There are three quick skips in the video due to technical issues. Sorry, Rat***
It's a full house on today's TACS - Bobby, Rich and Bert join Anthony for a chat. They talk about everything from gambling to childhood fights.

The free week kicks off with Ant and Ari Shaffir at the poker table talking about beer, their younger partying days, the impending Ferguson verdict, and the facts surrounding the case. Samantha from Super Action Fight joins the guys to chat about how she got into the industry and “mystery wrestler” E-Bobo sits to talk some shit about what’s going to go down. Samantha and E-Bobo take their places on the wrestling mat, the battle begins and as expected, Samantha wins five out of five matches. E-Bobo’s mask is removed to reveal it is in fact Bobo (Shocker!) and he and Samantha sit down with Ant and Ari to discuss the match, Bobo’s new job, and Ant’s firing. The guys chat with Sam about her love life, find out when she lost her virginity, get into both Sam and Bobo’s school days, and Bobo reminisces about his friend with MS. Ari and Ant then talk about the types of gals they like, their thoughts on people with kids, Bill Cosby, generalizing when it comes to crimes, racism, the police, and haters on-line.

Mike Brown and Brandon Collins sit with Anthony at the poker table and while they wait for the Starr sisters, they discuss strip clubs, Ant’s Jewey neighborhood, Bill Cosby, fuckable midget chicks, Al Sharpton, and how social media can effect your life in different ways. The Starr sisters join the party to chat about their “pussy juice lube,” their upcoming appearance at Headquarters Gentlemen’s Club, sharing guys, and their favorite positions. The sisters then dance for the boys, they all do shots, talk about their sex lives, plastic surgery, and cover the types of guys that they are attracted to.

The big TACSgiving show is here and all of the usual suspects (Bobo and Big A) are in studio to celebrate. Ron Bennington, Jim Norton, Gavin McInnes, East Side Dave, Luis J. Gomez, Dave Smith, Pat Dixon, and Mandy Stadtmiller share laughs-a-plenty with Anthony all while sharing a holiday feast prepared in studio by Chef Pasquale Martinelli from Warm Palate.
Dressed in all green (or is he??), Anthony is definitely in the holiday spirit as he reminisces about St. Patty’s Day drinking and puking, talks about protesters at the NYC St. Patrick’s Day parade, plays a news clip from the parade, and bags a bit on Irish tunes. We see a world record attempt in Dubai with an eagle, Ant admits he’s faggy for cat video’s, the “dick dress” makes an appearance, we learn about Gene Gene the Dancing Machine (RIP), watch Terrence Howard talk about the “n word,” hear about Ant’s Nana, and see a clip from The Boondocks. Since it wasn’t done yesterday, Anthony goes through Monday’s mail, reads a “heartwarming” story about a woman who donated her kidney, plays a “racist” video out of Japan, and addresses Rat’s lack of women with some help from Mike Damone. Rat explains WTF a “highlighter party” is, we see a news clip about a private part creeper, an aftermath video of a crazy dude on an airplane, Carlton calls in to comment on the Japan video, Ashley Judd fights back against internet trolls, Ant breaks down his opinion on trolls, and the show ends with a few calls.
Tuesday begins hearing about Ant’s morning in Time Square, Charlie Sheen’s HIV status and the timeline of his diagnosis, and Dave Attell takes a seat at the desk to gripe about the studio, discuss holiday plans, traveling, and to talk more shit on the studio. The guys get into old man banter with the web being “where it’s at,” the good old days, age dysmorphia, the Gerald Form museum, pipe smoking, history shows, competitive welding, black and white TV, and Dave professes his love for good looking Indians.
