I'd Never Heard Of 'Billy The Exterminator,' and Then I Watched It

His name is Billy Bretherton. And his show, 'Billy the Exterminator,' has become my newest obsession on Wednesday nights.

Understanding 'Billy the Exterminator,' which saw its second season premiere to record numbers in March (2.1 million viewers), requires understanding Billy. Like 'Dog the Bounty Hunter,' Bretherton is an interesting personality. He has a spiked, blond mullet, finishes off his look with a strangely placed goatee, and has brought "gnarly" back to television. He might seem odd, but he's the man people call when they have the worst pest issues.

Billy is supported by his family, including brother Ricky, his father Bill, and his mother Donnie. Together they help Bretherton run his business, Vexcon.

And although Billy gets top billing for his show, it might be more appropriate to include him as part of the supporting cast. The real stars of 'Billy the Exterminator' are the beasts Billy battles each week.

Ryan and I really like this show - not a guilt pleasure - we are very proud of it :)
