Charles Barkley said that the Lizard Lick Towing show on TruTV, is the white BET. He is entertained, by the way Ron Shirley owner of Lizard Lick Towing and his partner Bobby Brantley, repossess cars.
The show drew 1.9 million fans for the TruTV network during the last quarter tying it with their other repo show Operation Repo.
This is the answer Barkley gave an interviewer when asked what comes on after the TruTV basketball coverage on Sportsradiointerviews.com:
What followed you on truTV after the post-game analysis?
“Well once I found out we were going to be on truTV. They actually have a show called…first of all…truTV is really the white BET, truTV is white entertainment television. Dude, it’s some of the craziest stuff I’ve ever seen in my life. They got this one show called ‘Lizard Towing,’ Well they got these two big old boys from the south who be repossessing people’s cars and they end up chasing them down the street, fighting them every week. It is hilarious. These guys sneak into people’s houses. First of all, they seem like great guys, but they two big old country boys and they be stealing people’s cars back. It is the funniest thing in the world. They have people fighting with them all of the time. You’re just laughing the whole time. I’m telling you dude, it’s like white black entertainment television.”
