Way to ruin TV, Bridesmaids

As the Whitney Cummings come-fest (see what I did there) continues, I decided I would give Whitney and 2 Broke Girls another shot before fall. Meaning I would watch the promos, upfronts, what have you. I actually wasn't too down on Broke Girls because I like Kat Dennings even though I don't remember why (probably The House Bunny) and some of the people they have on staff. I trust them I guess is what I'm saying...even though it's on CBS. Every time I even say CBS I'm pretty sure I lose five brain cells. Not like they die. I lose them. They hide and can't be found.

I actually laughed during that. During this shit though...


What the hell NBC? You have 3 of the best shows on TV. Last season you hit us with that awful piece of turtle shit, Perfect Couples. Now this? This show doesn't even have a premise. It's just two people with some fucking lines. Lines that aren't even funny. Even people who like Whitney Cummings think this is a mistake. And NBC. N B C. A multi-cam? Stop trying to Dutch Oven me. I know you see CBS and Modern Family and think, oh multi-cam is a good idea. It's not. It just isn't. It is not going to help your ratings. It is not going to make you number 3 or 2 or 1. It makes you look like you're trying too hard. A fucking multi-cam? Is this a joke?

Not a joke. A conspiracy. Bridesmaids did so well They had to come up with a plan to completely reverse all the good it did. Think it's a coincidence that 2 Broke Girls, Whitney, Are You There Vodka, It's Me Chelsea (I want to slap box a chimp every time I see that name), and New Girl are all coming out at the same time? These supposed female-fronted "comedies." I sincerely hope these are better than I'm expecting.

  1. It's bizarre that there is suddenly this crop of contrived female comedies that are trying to be raunchy and edgy within the typically parameters of a corny sitcom. I haven't seen Bridesmaids, but I had wondered if that triggered all these networks to suddenly be confident in launching female-led sitcoms. I wonder what other factors have also been catalysts, as I still find it odd networks would all jump to do this after the success of just one movie.
