Mega-Millionaire Ricky Gervais Sells Out Stephen Merchant

Mega-Millionaire Ricky Gervais Sells Out Stephen Merchant

Ricky Gervais blessed the sitcom world with the creation of “The Office” and numerous other brilliant shows. But it seems he’s forgotten what made him great as he threw his longtime friend and comedy partner Stephen Merchant under the bus.

Comic genius and self-professed egomaniac Ricky Gervais is the creator of the international smash franchise “The Office” as well as critically acclaimed shows like “Derek”, “An Idiot Abroad,” “Extras” and four masterful stand up comedy tours. Doesn’t mean he’s not a prick. Continue Reading

MTV Promises to Literally Double Gross by 2015

MTV Promises to Literally Double Gross by 2015

MTV, long known as the first choice in late-night music and regular hours infomercials and reality porn-fer-tainment has set an ambitious goal; to double their gross by 2015, and they’re committed to scraping the gross bottom of the barrel to make it happen.

“We’re thinking maybe a show about sexy little people who are also mentally challenged, or a show about sufferers of gigantism who have very small genitalia, but very high sex drives,” said MTV president Stephen K. Friedman. “That would easily be twice as gross, right?” Continue Reading

Power Outage Pulls Plug on South Park Episode

Power Outage Pulls Plug on South Park Episode

Los Angeles: In these uncertain and unstable times there is still one thing the people of America believed they could rely on. Now, all hope is lost and even when the government shutdown ends (which if Cartman has anything to do with, will soon go the way of Kenny) an episode of South Park will still have been delayed.

For the first time in its 16 year, 240 episode history, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone failed to deliver. No, they weren’t out dress shopping for the next awards show; they simply couldn’t meet their notoriously tight deadline due to a massive “unscheduled” power cut- which sounds more like something that was on the agenda at the last Republican meeting.

So, in a week rife with satirical possibilities and bursting with the opportunity for some political humour, viewers got to watch an all time fan favourite episode entitled “Scott Tenorman Must Die”.

Many viewers inserted ‘Republicans’ in the place of Scott Tenorman and experienced a happy, glowing feeling after viewing. The choice was kind of relevant as the episodes features Cartman trying to trick a boy into eating his own parents, which is about as counterproductive as the recent shutdown.

So, whilst the whole of America had waited to see how South Park was going to give the Republicans their typical brand of satirical treatment, the creators of the series sat in the dark. There was little that Parker and Stone could do to change the situation, so they probably spent their time writing new material by candlelight or playing mobile games at sites like www.mobilecasino.mobi – at least until their batteries went flat.

The power cut hit Los Angeles for several hours and made it impossible for the South Park production crew to meet their Comedy Central deadline, and Parker summed it up succinctly when he said it sucked.

The title of episode 1704 was “Goth Kids: Dawn of the Posers.” Which kind of sums up the way most of Republicans look when they don their dark suits. It could also have been reference to the fact that they continue to carry on like they are smoking some serious weed; and we all know goth kids do drugs. Either way, viewers will have to wait and see, that’s if the plug doesn’t get pulled out again next week.

Bill Maher to Debut “Overtime After Dark” Post-Post Show in 2014

HBO has enjoyed tremendous success with Bill Maher in their weekly late night slot, and even greater success in the web-only segment of the show “Overtime”, but now they’re taking it to the next level with “Overtime After Dark,” set to premiere in 2014.

“The show is good,” said Barry Goldsteinburg, acting agent for Bill Maher, “but with the continued success of Overtime we just felt it was the right time to take it to the next level.” Continue Reading

Woman Watching Sitcom Frustrated Characters Not Doing Things Most Logical, Efficient Way

Woman Watching Sitcom Frustrated Characters Not Doing Things Most Logical, Efficient Way

MILWAUKEE, WI—While watching television Tuesday night, Diane Goodwyn expressed to reporters her frustration regarding characters in the ABC sitcom Tell Me About It doing things that made already bad situations only worse.

“No one wants to see that,” said the 53-year-old.

While gesturing her hands emphatically, an exasperated Goodwyn pointed out how foolish it was for a character to try to go on a blind date and manage a friend’s surprise party on the same night. Continue Reading

Libertarians Claim James Gandolfini Killed By CIA

Libertarians Claim James Gandolfini Killed By CIA

In the wake of The Sopranos star James Gandolfini’s sudden death,libertarians everywhere are saying the actor was assassinated by the Central Intelligence Agency.

Just after getting word of the Gandolfini’s tragic passing, the website ronpaulrulz posted the following conspiratorial explanation:

Libertarians and freedom-loving people everywhere refuse to accept the mainstream corporate media’s account of Jimbo Gandolfini’s death.

Our eyes have been opened, and we are putting down the Kool-Aid in exchange for some Natty Light, with Liberty Constitution at our side. Gandolfini was in fact killed because his role as organized crime boss Tony Soprano spat directly in the face of big government and authoritarian politics.

By running his business like John Galt would if we had an absence of government, with every man for himself, Soprano symbolized everything hated by the establishment. In killing off Jimbo, the CIA was finally able to exact revenge for his noxious quibbling against their tyranny.

Martine Nicole of Paris expressed similar suspicions, saying “The evidence is startling. This unfunny and not satirical practice of the people believing mainstream journalism is positively unnerving. If we only listened to true free market sources like Russia Today, then the misconception would be completely cleared up.”

Another libertarian from New Hampshire said: “If Ron Paul was president, and Gary Johnson was VP, we would have a full explanation for why Gandolfini died. Better yet, BDSM would be legalized between men and boys, because as we all know, government is tyranny.”

Although reports are still coming in, some sources say the libertarian skeptics are planning a mass protest in Washington, D.C. which will include the consumption of great amounts of laxatives.

SNL Caught ‘Rounding Second’ with Obama–World Shocked

The signs, though subtle and unseen by many, were always there. The episode before last of the much loved, sketch comedy TV show only underscored the true reality of their relationship.

After Seth Meyers, the Weekend Update news anchor, more than adequately roasted a few Republican politicians, he then began commenting on the president’s inauguration. And, ostensibly, he made a few extremely harmless but funny quips about Biden photo-bombing the president, etc. Continue Reading

From <em>COPS</em> to <em>Pot Farmers</em>: How Reality TV Has Done a 360

From COPS to Pot Farmers: How Reality TV Has Done a 360

Everyone who is a fan of reality television knows that COPS is credited with being the first reality-based show on television. A staple on Saturday nights, COPS ruled the roost in reality television for several decades on Fox before being pushed aside for more elaborate shows on other channels.

So it is more than ironic that the latest offering in reality TV shows would be about an activity that has law enforcement officials feeling helpless to stop—Pot Farming in Northern California. Continue Reading
