When do we get a show about the Aflac duck?

Hey readers, I think you're totally awesome so here's a link to a preview of the best new show of the fall!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Made you click! Okay, that was mean. I hope you survived the badness. In fact, that looks like the worst new show of the fall. Part of me can't believe they would put something on TV that a) sounds like such a bad idea and b) isn't even executed well. Then I remember that TV executives are pretty much idiots.

To make up for my tomfoolery and all the damage it has done to your eyes and ears, I will point you in the direction of the online pilot of the Flight of the Conchords TV show, coming to HBO this June! Why must all the goodness be on cable, while all of the very very very very very badness burns my eyes on ABC?

I just saw that on HBO and thought of you!

Crap like that on ABC just makes me mourn even a bad episode of Alias all the more.

No, this is going to be a surprise hit. It sounds stupid but it's going to be brilliant.

See, that was my first thought: "This idea sounds so stupid that for them to have picked it up, the execution must be BRILLIANT!" But then I saw the clip. I am stymied.

But on the other hand, I'm not very good at picking TV shows. Usually I watch the pilot episode of something that turns out to be terrible, then I start watching this other show (Lost, 30 Rock, American Idol, Friends, etc.) that I thought was going to be stupid and I have to find a way to catch up on all of the episodes I missed.

Hey Sarah, Now that your are planning on downsizing to a smaller apartment . . . why not spring for cable?

There's only one (well, now two) shows I watch on cable, so it's a lot cheaper just to follow them on DVD.

I thought that was a joke! Is that really a show? If they really want to do a show about "race relations -- aw, forget it, who I am arguing with... TV is just stupid...

I just watched that HBO thing, and that's hilarious.
