For First Episode Of "24/7 Jimmie Johnson"
POSITIVE REACTIONS: SceneDaily.com’s Bob Pockrass wrote on his Twitter account, “Overall first Jimmie Johnson 24/7 was really good. Production quality awesome. A little dramatic but supposed to be.” Former NASCAR Scene writer Jeff Gluck: “NASCAR has never, ever, ever looked cooler than on this HBO show. Even if you don't like Jimmie, gotta love this show if you like racing.” USA Today’s Nate Ryan: “With best reality TV, you learn stuff you don't expect & that was case w/HBO's 24/7. Good production from this amateur's view, too.”
