In tonight’s episode of new Discovery show “All Star Dealers,” Richie Russek, owner of a Long Island-based auction company Gray Flannel Auctions, visits the mansion of four-time heavyweight champ and Atlantan Evander Holyfield. He tries to convince Holyfield to consign a one-of-a-kind item from the boxer’s personal collection.

Check him out tonight at 8 p.m. There’s a video sample below, too.

Though plenty of auction/storage/pawn shows are doing great (”Storage Wars,” “Pawn Stars,” “Hardcore Pawn,” “Storage Hunters,” “Auction Kings” et. al), this particular sports-oriented show is not a hit. Last Tuesday, the two episodes drew 663,000 viewers and 591,000 viewers, respectively.

In comparison, “Storage Wars” last week on A&E brought in nearly 5 million viewers. “Pawn Stars” on History hit a whopping  7 million viewers last week. Atlanta-based TruTV’s “Hardcore Pawn” and “Storage Hunters” last week both exceeded two million viewers.

Discovery didn’t help “All Star Dealers” by airing it at 8 p.m. which is not a great time slot nowadays. Most hit cable shows air at 9 or 10 p.m.

And reviews for “All Star Dealers” have been relatively tepid.

Here is a promo clip of Holyfield:

Perhaps Evander, T.O., Tyson, Tony Dorsett and L.L. Cool J can all room together in a reality show called: “Show Me The Money.”

I’m pretty sure there isn’t a pawn show named “Hardcore Porn”. Might want to correct that.

I had the misfortune of working for Rich for a few years about 6 years ago. Ive seen the clips online…I wont watch the show when it airs, he acts not too far off in real life than what you see in the show. He is all about the money, not the historical significance of the items..nor does he care about the well being of his employees or their families.

I built Evanders house. Well not me alone lol. He was a nice guy the few times I talked to him. He’s not a thug. Any saying he is are just asshats.

While he may not be the smartest man that ever lived and prone to being mined by gold digging female doctors, he always seemed like a stand up, down to earth guy. If he were my friend I would be proud to call him my friend.

You folks who don’t know any better really should lay off.

He may be a nice guy.

I would be hesitant to call someone my friend who has that many kids with that many different women. Seriously lacking some moral values there. I’m glad he has the talent to punch other men in the face. Or he would just be another low life, lazy, thug not paying child supports for all his kids.

I don’t know the details of his mortgage payments or property tax situation, but sounds like more shirking of responsibility. Guess it all proves, you can be a nice guy, but not be a constructive or productive contributor to society.

DWW… his house is 1/4 mile south of 138, on Hwy. 279. Saying he lives “off” 138 is a correct statement.
