Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die! Today’s contestant is the always funny, Eugene Levy. Let’s see what he’s tweeting.
November 14, 2012: “The down side of fame. No kidding! http://FunnyOrDie.com/m/7bz2”
Wow, Eugene Levy rarely tweets.
March 11, 2013: “Have I mentioned what a big fan I am of Fred Armisen? Don’t know why it’s taken so long.”
I don’t blame the lack of tweets. I’d never do it if I didn’t have things to promote.
January 13th: “Three years of blood, sweat and tears in the making. Well, no tears. Catch back to back episodes of
@Schitt‘s Creek tonight at 9 on CBC.”
Ah, ha! That’s what he was doing.
January 14th: “Kudos to an amazing cast and crew! So very proud!
Aw, man. We get the BBC, but not the CBC!
January 19th: “Here’s a question I get all the time: what do most Canadians watch on a Tuesday night? And I lied about the question thing.
Trailer Park Boys, I assume.
Maybe if it comes to the U.S., you could get Kurt Sutter to produce it. Of course, then all the characters would murder each other horribly.
Now that was a Canadian tweet.
Great. And we’re stuck watching The Grinder.
He’s flacking this show hard. I guess the Canadian TV season starts in January.
Or maybe they took an American show and adapted it. Maybe it was originally Dawson’s Creek, you don’t know.
February 3rd: “Call your Ma!! Call your Pa!!
#SchittsCreek is on in 15 minutes and I couldn’t rhyme it.”
But neither does “Call your mama, call your pop! I’m gonna send you back to Arkansas all right now!” But it was good enough for Ray Charles.
February 7th: “
#scittscreekpop is headed to NYC!!!”
Ah, ha! Maybe we can see it now.
Pop TV. Ah, found it. Channel 100. It’s on Wednesdays. I’ll have to check it out.
March 24th: “How can I top what I wrote 2 tweets ago. Impossible.”
I skipped a few plug tweets. Pretty much the same stuff.
You’re a big star in the states, you must be gigantic in Canada.
May 6th: “Hey America! Don’t miss tonight’s finale of
@SchittsCreekPop at 10P/9C on PopTv. You’ll thank me for the reminder.”
All right, this sounds like a binge watch show.
Let’s rate Eugene’s tweets. Eh. He’s not really into them, but trust me, he’s funny. If you get a chance to watch reruns of SCTV, do it. It’s amazing. I give Eugene a 3 for Mustness, a 5 for Style and a 7 for Insanity. That’s an overall score of 5, but follow Eugene anyway. And watch Schitt’s Creek. I’m sure it’s awesome.
