LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - OCTOBER 14: A dead zombie prop lies on the hood of a police vehicle at the Fright Ride immersive haunted attraction on October 14, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The creative team from the Fright Dome attraction made the new experience after seeing how the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic was shutting down many Halloween events across the country and decimating the entertainment industry in Las Vegas. Guests are driven through the 75,000-square-foot "research lab" on electric carts in groups of six or less to maintain social distancing. Other safety protocols in place include face coverings required for all guests, staff and actors, enhanced cleaning procedures and visit-specific entry times for all patrons.

Rat Rock Nation looks like some rumors are going around all about some filming being done at Monmouth Mall in Eatontown right off route 35 here in Jersey.

It sounds like a spin-off or the actual show called “The Walking Dead” will be doing some scenes in the parking lot, or right in the mall itself.

A couple of friends of mine said they saw a couple of the crew members out there with all the cameras and filming equipment. That’s right the zombies might be walking around the mall.

Now with a lot of people shopping online with Amazon, you might say the mall might be very quiet and they should have no problem getting some great scenes to be filmed there at the Monmouth Mall.

I want to know how to become an extra on this movie set. If you have any information on how to be part of this filming project please let us know right here. Sounds like a fun thing to do and I was into watching “The Walking Dead” and all the zombies walking around.

I’m always a fan of even the Zombie Walk that takes place right here in Asbury Park. We should just get a bunch of people from that and get all dressed up and walk over and maybe the movie crew would say WOW look at all these zombies and put us in the movie. That would be cool but of course, we should probably ask first.

Would love to know if you have any pics of seen or even heard about this please share them right here. Sounds pretty cool thing to do.

Thank you for reading and as always thank you for always rocking out with us here at 95.9 The Rat. Much love from your boy – Gotts

The 10 Most Popular TV Shows to Watch Before Bed

If you’re like half of the population of Americans, watching television before bed is a part of your nighttime routine. Sleep experts at Bestmattress-brand conducted a survey in which they found that 60% of Americans watch TV before bed. Of that, over 50% of the participants watch TV 5-7 days per week before hitting the hay. The research shows that 50.9% of Americans start watching TV between 9 pm and 11 pm. 42% stop watching TV between 11 pm and 1 am.

A spokesperson from the mattress brand commented: “It’s common for us to want to enjoy our favorite TV shows before bed, however too much artificial light, especially right before we think we might try to fall asleep, can increase our alertness and impair our ability to fall asleep naturally.”

They advised, “So, if you are wanting to watch TV before bed it is recommended to switch it off 30 minutes before you are about to sleep so as to allow your mind to prepare for a good night’s sleep.”

There is a wide range of shows that Americans fall asleep to, but below are the top 10 shows that respondents favor:

  • 10. Baseball - 10%

    Sports are easy to watch and are (generally) relaxing for viewers and can be put on in the background while falling asleep, making it a good choice for sports enthusiasts. Baseball’s slower pace (as compared to football, basketball and hockey) makes it easier to fall asleep to.

  • 9. Modern Family – 10.1%

    Modern Family is a show about three related modern-day families from California who try to deal with their kids, quirky spouses and jobs in their own unique ways, often falling into hilarious situations. The show garnered huge popularity over the years, with the expertly written and delivered sitcom balancing comedy with morals and messages, that curate a light-hearted show that remains engaging throughout. This show is one that can be watched again and again, which makes it a good choice for a relaxing and enjoyable bedtime show.

  • 8. Basketball – 11%

    Basketball provides viewers with easy-to-watch entertainment that can be paused and recorded, or watched as highlights, so even if you fall asleep you won’t miss any moments.

  • 7. The Big Bang Theory - 11.4%

    The Big Bang Theory is a comedy about brilliant physicists, Leonard and Sheldon and their friends, who are the kind of “beautiful minds” that understand how the universe works. But none of that genius helps them interact with people, especially women. This show ended in 2019 after 12 seasons as a fan favorite. The witty comedy intertwined with heartfelt touching moments provided an enjoyable viewing experience that can be watched again and again.

  • 6. Saturday Night Live – 14.9%

    Saturday Night Live (SNL) has been a staple of American night-time TV since its inception in the ’70s. The premise of SNL is actors, comedians and artists get together to perform short, hilarious skits on current, intelligent and at times, ridiculous topics. SNL is the longest-running sketch comedy show in America and therefore may act as a comfort show with an element of re-watchability that makes it easy for many to fall asleep too.

  • 5. The Simpsons – 13.1%

    The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom following working-class father Homer Simpson and his dysfunctional family, as they deal with comical situations and the ups and downs of life in the town of Springfield. With over 700 episodes, The Simpsons is one of the most popular and longest-running animated shows.

  • 4. Football – 13.5%

    As the most popular sport in America, it is understandable that many Americans enjoy falling asleep to games, highlights, replays and other football-related shows. Sports provide comfortable watching that requires little interaction and engagement, which makes for a relaxing viewer experience that could help some fall asleep at night.

  • 3. Bob’s Burgers – 16.7%

    Bobs Burgers follows restaurateur, Bob Belcher, who deals with various situations while running his dream restaurant with the help of his uptight wife and their three underachieving kids. This adult animated sitcom is popular due to the cast’s easy, affectionate back-and-forth and meshing comedic sensibilities of the cast. This easy-watching and relatable type of family dynamic makes it a good night-time choice to drift off to.

  • 2. American Dad! – 17.1%

    Seth MacFarlane’s animated sitcom follows CIA agent Stan Smith, who is painfully dedicated to homeland security. His home life includes his ditzy housewife Francine, liberal daughter Hayley and socially awkward teenage son Steve. Also living in the family’s home are Klaus, a goldfish with the brain of an East German Olympic ski jumper, and Roger, an escaped alien from Area 51, who Stan houses in defiance of his employer due to owing Roger a “life debt.”

  • 1. Family Guy – 20.2%

    Family Guy, an animated sitcom also created by Seth MacFarlane, hits the #1 spot as the most popular show. The series has won 9 Emmys and is in its 21st season. The show follows no linear storyline and so can be watched in any order without the viewer feeling lost. The show follows the adventures of the Griffin family with endearingly ignorant Peter, housewife Lois and their three kids. Meg, the eldest child, is a social outcast, teenage Chris is awkward and clueless when it comes to the opposite sex and Stewie is their genius baby who is bent on killing his mother and destroying the world. To top it off, they have a talking dog, Brian, who keeps Stewie in check while sipping martinis and sorting through his own life issues. The light-hearted comedy is what makes it a perfect choice to fall asleep to.
