IFC Premieres ”The Jon Dore Television Show” On Tuesday, August 18

Seasons One and Two Air Back-to-Back

New York, NY, August 17, 2009 – IFC will air seasons one and two (twenty-six half-hour episodes) of The Jon Dore Television Show back-to-back beginning Tuesday, August 18 at 10 pm ET/PT as part of IFC’s Tuesday night "Automat" programming block.

In The Jon Dore Television Show, Dore’s flat-out, crazy take on life is told through an array of real-life interviews, off-the-wall tangents and wild antics. In each episode, he fearlessly throws himself in the line-of-fire as he sets out to correct his faults and make all his "wrongs" right again.

Topics include: finding out the truth about his undescended testicle; getting help from a hypnotist to squash a smoking addiction; and enlisting the services of an army drill sergeant to whip him into shape.
