The Fox network has greenlit a half-hour comedy that's pure "BS."

Wauuw, now I understand why they try to kill Futurama. With a string of quality shows like this waiting in the background, it must be so frustrating to have a cartoon taking up valuable airtime. I mean who wouldn't like a show with this character: "hulky independent adventurer who doesn't back away from a good fight and has a face that doesn't lie."  laff

Marc has made comments about it, but it really is a real FOX special:

I agree, FOX are such retards to support this kind of shit. I hate the genre of programs based on public lives, over in England there are always mountains of gardening programs such as "Ground Force" and loads of DIY programs like "Changing Rooms", so much shit that it's unbelievable. What makes it worse is that they keep on going, "Changing Rooms" has about 6 seasons, will some people never tire of watching different peoples rooms being painted and watching it 100s of times? Also once one of these types of programs begins, everyone else jumps on the band wagon. Futurama is such a quality program, I can't belive the public life genre is pushing it off the air. MONEY is all they care about and making programs about the public is dirt cheap  up yours FOX and all the other channels that do this.

Other crap like "Who Wants to be a Millionare" gets so lame after 50 shows and the novelty wheres off once someone actaully gets a million, yet it's still on after years of being shown many times a week  mad

hey hey, otis.  the american version of "Changing Rooms" is called "Trading Spaces" on TLC and it's a great show. Sometimes people cry when they realize that their former best friends destroyed their room.  heh, that's entertainment.

Ehhh, screw the stupid viewers! They're just stupid! I think the Glutton Bowl is just a one-episode special, I hope. Man, Fox needs writers BAAAAD!!!!!! But, to quote a video-game magazine editor, Fox has got balls the size of Philadelphia to green-light all this crap.

Fox should be charged with 'depraved indifference toward human decency'.  If that's not a crime, then it should be.

No, it's more like a Bar Mitzvah smorgasbord with cash prizes. And somewhat more disgusting food.

I liked BBT's other thread, so allow me to copy and paste:

The Fox network has accepted three projects for fall consideration: “The Pitts,” a comedy from 20th Century Fox TV; an untitled comedy from Eric Gilliland and Studios USA; and the dramedy “Septuplets,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“The Pitts,” from Emmy-winning “Simpsons” veteran Mike Scully, follows the Pitt family, an average yet unlucky bunch who face weekly obstacles. Scully also penned the script with his wife, writer Julie Thacker. The live-action comedy has already received a pilot order.

Gilliland (ABC’s “Roseanne”) will write and executive produce his untitled pilot, which follows a liberal son’s return from the Peace Corps to a new conservative stepfather. Gilliland’s most recently executive produced the CBS sitcom “Welcome to New York.”

"Septuplets," from writer-director-producer Kip Koening ("How to Make the Cruelest Month" ), centers on teenage septuplets who live in a family-owned, Santa Monica hotel. No studio is yet attached to the project.

Sounds pretty crappy. One question though, what is "Welcome To New York"? Is that the 9/11 sitcom that I heard about a while back?

Welcome to New York was a short lived series with Christine Baranski (formerly known as the friend in Cybill).  It also starred Jim Gaffigan although when they cast Christine the focus of the show turned to her.

Septuplets sounds a little too much like 7th heaven, doesn't it?

I talked to a friend about Fox's programming, and he thinks that their shows have gone down the crapper because, in honest truth, Fox is trying too hard to cover everything. I admit, Fox has some good news, but then they try to do sports, primetime, and now reality shows. In the mid-to-late 90's, Fox was the shizz. The Simpsons were still in their prime, and millions were tuned on to their sitcoms, especially with Married with Children. Somehow, Fox lost their sense of decency when increasing sports coverage and making their own reality stuff. An obvious example in this is the way football pre-empts Futurama.

Fox was best when they only did news and sitcoms.

Lets take a moment to remember when the very shows Fox airs made fun of them. My favourite is Family Guy mocking the short lived "Just One Fox" on their first episode. Just one gun.

And they said that you should graduate from engineering with a D!

Somehow, the show doesn't look so bad when it's on the Discovery Channel. Maybe it's the "watch and actually learn something" angle.
