The Clark Howard Show recently joined us at Consumer Reports’ Yonkers offices for a look behind the scenes at The Consumerist. What’s an EECB? What’s it like to be constantly on the prowl for evidence of the effects of the mythical Grocery Shrink Ray? Why do we post so many cat pictures?
Our special segment on the Clark Howard TV show will run this weekend. Take a sneak peak into the world of the editors of Consumerist. Join Ben and Meg as they show you how we made this blog and the special sauce that goes into making it hum along.

The show airs on HLN at 6am Eastern on Saturday 7/2 and Sunday 7/3.
UPDATE: As it turns out, the segment will air in a subsequent week, not this weekend. Sorry folks! Stay tuned and we’ll tell you when it gets rescheduled.
