    I just saw a commercial for the Steve Jobs ep airing on 6/23. More info at http://classic.cnbc.com/id/38347294.

    If there's enough interest in the show, I or someone else can start separate threasd for each ep.

    Of the 4 names you have listed in the title, I'd like to watch Steve Jobs and Lee Iacocca. I had to google who Jack Welch even was.

    Regarding Jack Welch, I'm aware of him because of the moniker "Neutron Jack" and have owned some GE stock in the past. Also, some people at my former employer have attributed its review system methodology (for better or worse) to Jack Welch.

    I also am a regular watcher of CNBC and Nightly Business Report on PBS.

    I know a couple of people who frequent these forums who will be watching the Steve Jobs one. I'm sure it will be magical :)

    Did the Foreman grill do that good that George is considered a Titan?

    I watched the Steve Jobs ep earlier tonight. It was quite good and showed a fair amount of footage and photos I'd never seen. Then again, I wasn't a close follower of Apple at all until late 2004.

    Steve Jobs ep is being rerun 7/4.

    I've watched part of the Donald Trump one and learned a lot so far. It isn't being rerun in the next 2 weeks.

    The link that I posted in the first post actually has dates next to some of then names now.

    I watched the Steve Jobs one. It was pretty good. He's quite an interesting guy. I found out he lived about two blocks from here and went to the local elementary school. I am literally walking in his footsteps. :D

    Steve Jobs ep is being rerun numerous time in the next 2 weeks.

    I learned a lot from the Lee Iacocca but it wasn't so good that I'd spend the time to archive it to DVD.
