Did they happen to mention what kind of program Everyone Loves Hypnotoad is meant to be: i.e. sitcom, chat show and so on.

I think it's taking off "Everybody Loves Raymond", so let's say sitcom.

I would think it's just the Hypnotoad doing its eye thing for half an hour. No wonder it went downhill after the third season.

Yeah I think that too, but it's a sitcom... he just does that anyway... or something.

Matt at one point said the most popular tv show in the future was Mass Hypnosis Hour. Everybody Loves Hypnotoad is probably a spinoff.

As for what it is, I'm going with Slashco's idea.

Im gonna say its a futuristic reality series. NBC has given up on trying to get people to genuinly enjoy thier crap, so they just started forcing them to.

I think it's not any sort of programme at all. I think viewers tune in, and are hypnotised by the hypnotoad for the entire duration of the programme, so that they can't turn over, and have a subliminal compulsion to tune in again for the next one. That's why the viewing figures are so good. Many British soaps use the same technique, probly. I mean, they must do, mustn't they. Why else would people watch them?

Ok I now agree with BDZ. I think that's the final answer.

So the Hypnotoad got his own show by hypnotising the network owners in to allowing it, and the show is pretty much him hypnotising the viewers in to watching the next episode? Alright, that does make sense - but what's his motive for wanting a show? Hmmmm... I've just made this a helluva lot more confusing, huh?

Also, I just want to say that Matt Groening should learn hypnotism for the next time he tries to convince Fox to renew Futurama...   tongue

Dagnabbit! And now with the dudes at Planet Express cancelled, he might just get away with it! Put the word out. We need to get Futurama back on the air, the future of humanities at sake.

Fry, we love you, but we've only got 1,000 years to save the Earth!

An interesting question?  While we all know Hypnotoad is all powerful, he seems to want nothing more than people paying attention to him.  We have never seen him act so as to harm anyone, he just wants to be hailed.  Why take over the solar system, when you can simply have a TV show and have everyone watch you. 

Did Bush think of offerring Sadam his own show?  IT might have worked.  confused

Scary thread title.
Maybe the Hypnotoad has a bunch of spinoff shows, like "The Hypnotoad Family" or "Cookin' with Hypnotoad."  Or "tonight on the Zombie Osbournes, Hypnotoad drops in for a visit.  ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD."
