Tina Fey Sells Two Original Series to NBC, Fox

tina fey gif mustacheAre you a Tina Fey fan? Of course you are, because Tina Fey is fucking hilarious.

So good news for everyone: the 30-Rock creator/star’s production company Little Stranger made two big sales this week, meaning we’ll be getting some more of that signature Tina Fey humor in the near future.

The first is a “Cheers-like comedy” that takes place on New York’s Fire Island and was picked up by NBC. The second, which was sold to Fox on Friday, is set around an all-women’s college that begins accepting men.

Fey likely won’t be on screen much, but the fact that she’s involved in the projects at all means they’ll likely be worth a watch. She’ll also be working with members of her 30 Rock team, including long time friend and 30 Rock co-executive producer Matt Hubbard.  Continue reading “Tina Fey Sells Two Original Series to NBC, Fox”

“The Mindy Project” – Mindy Kaling’s On Screen Self-Masturbatory Fantasy

Mindy Kaling might have picked the right time to leave “the Office,” but her new show “the Mindy Project” is definitely a step in the wrong direction.

I am a raving fan of “the Office;” so much so that I am blinded by the most recent season’s absence of Steve Carell and I am willingly following the show into its ultimate death (I am thinking sometime in Spring 2013).

After last season wrapped, it was announced that even more long time collaborators would be leaving, including Mindy Kaling and Paul Lieberstein.  Kaling has gone off to Fox to do her own thing, which is apparently just one large self-masturbatory fantasy setting after another.  Continue reading ““The Mindy Project” – Mindy Kaling’s On Screen Self-Masturbatory Fantasy”

The Real Headline Is That Bill Maher Types “U” Instead Of “You”

What right does Bill Maher have making fun of Tim Tebow or bible humpers when he is too lazy to spell out the word “you?” Okay, backstory: notorious liberal atheist Maher went on Twitter and made jokes about Jesus fucking over Tebow because he lost so badly (40-14) to the Bills.

I could care less about what fundamentalist windbags are against this week, it’s usually the opposite of interesting. When I heard this story and read the Tweets I was much more surprised and shocked by Bill Maher’s typing style. “Pls?” “u?” “re” instead of “read?”

Hank Williams Jr. Calls Obama Hitler, Gets His Crappy Song Removed From ESPN

After comparing Obama to Adolf Hitler on Fox News country icon and notorious Republican Hank Williams Jr. said, of the president playing golf with house speaker John Boehner, “Come on, it’d be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu,” in a reference to the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Obviously the two would clash, is the ridiculous point he was making on Monday morning – the man who ordered millions of Jewish citizens to death, hitting the links with the Jewish prime minister of Israel…

Kiefer Sutherland’s Return To Fox

Fox has already ordered 13 episodes of a Touch, a new show starring my favorite blonde Canadian vampire, Kiefer Sutherland.

Sutherland plays the role of a father of a young mute boy (David Mazouz) who can predict the future.

The show is a project by Heroes creator Tim Kring, and it will air on Thursdays in Spring of 2012.

Sutherland is not the only veteran actor enlisted, Danny Glover will star as a professor who works with gifted children…
