Remember 'The Jane Pratt Show'? Neither do we. Apparently it was a daytime talk show that lasted a mere five months on the Lifetime network back in 1993.

Nearly two months have passed since Aaron Freeman (aka Gene Ween) announced Ween were over and that he had moved on to focus on a solo career, but his former bandmate, guitarist/singer Mickey Melchiondo (aka Dean Ween), still doesn't believe the split will hold.
