South Philly sandwich czar/actor Tony Luke Jr. is getting into the TV game with Tony Luke's Eaglemania, a weekly, half-hour show backed by the Eagles -- so it will have plenty of rah-rah. I'm also hearing about such features as "Sweat-Sock-Puppet Theater" and gags played on the players. The show will air at midnight (late Saturday, up against SNL) on 6ABC, premiering Sept. 11. (Shows will repeating the following 1 a.m. Saturday.) Plans are to tape the show, whose house band includes Skip Denenberg and Back2Life, at the Troc in Chinatown. First taping will be Aug. 17.
Signs are pointing to an "early September" opening for the third area Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, coming to the former Acme site at 309 E. Lancaster Ave. in Wayne. Other local stores are in Horsham and Wilmington.
