...It took 5 full minutes of watching NBC’s sitcom, 100 Questions, before my friend and I realized it was an actual sitcom and not a commercial shtick making fun of terrible sitcoms. Once that realization set in, I didn’t know whether to feel insulted as a thinking primate that NBC would slap together such crap and serve it up in its Thursday night line-up to the same audience that has grown accustomed to the comedic talents of Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Steve Carell, Joel McHale and Amy Poehler, or whether I should feel concerned for the state of American audiences if viewers actually enjoy this program (which cannot be the case … it just can’t).
While it’s difficult to criticize the actors of 100 Questions because the script is so bad, one thing is for sure–the laugh track editing is ludicrous. Although this chimp gives 100 Questions a poo sling, I encourage you to watch the show, if only once for a few minutes, to witness the world’s worst use of the laugh track, which is louder than the actual actors and is edited-in precisely at the moment an actor delivers his/her lines, thus creating the illusion of a room full of insane audience members who laugh unnaturally early and inappropriately loud. It’s so weird, it’s surreal...

While we were all anxious to see what Will Ferrell's still-untitled production was all about, we foud out that Comedy Central sitcom was set to begin, but without Jon Heder. Two days before the production's start, Jon was dropped out. The explanation was simple: creative differences were to be blamed.

Kavana, who was briefly a famous pop-star during the 90s is apparently going to star in a new sitcom about a faded pop-star. He seems to have a hand in production too.
I wonder how long it will take before it goes from knowng sitcom about the music industry to completely shameless vehicle to release singles off of the back of?

"There were a slew of great sitcoms from the ‘80s and ‘90s that most of us grew up on and have fond memories of. But there were a handful of characters in these shows who always rubbed us the wrong way, and we couldn’t help but wonder whether they were off doing much more sinister things during the scenes they weren’t in. Here’s a look at the characters who were most likely leading second lives as serial killers without their sitcom families ever even knowing about it.
7. Wilson from Home Improvement
I mean, there’s something that’s simply not right about this situation. Here’s a neighbor whose face nobody has ever really seen. This is more than cause for alarm. He’s always up to some kind of tomfoolery on his side of the fence, and it usually involves some contraption or foreign concept that nobody’s ever heard of. Can you say terrorist?
Wilson is one of those domestic terrorists who’s really good at laying low and holding down the home front. He takes care of business in his house all day – did anybody ever really figure out just what in the hell his job was? He was doing God knows what, and then at the end of the day he shared creepy little aphorisms and anecdotes with his neighbor.
Of course, we’re supposed to think he’s just sharing a bit of his worldly wisdom with a knuckledheaded neighbor, but on closer inspection it’s easy to see what Wilson was really doing. He was planting the seeds of the apocalypse, one brainwashed soldier at a time. Somebody check the freezer in this guy’s garage on the double – you’ll find all those missing persons real quick.""There were a slew of great sitcoms from the ‘80s and ‘90s that most... more
Another day, another year-end list.
After reading -- Yahoo TVs "The Best and Worst TV Casting Decisions of 2008" -- I totally disagree with the catty-comment on the very funny "Kath & Kim" (and one of this year's personal guilty pleasures) ...
As Yahoo puts it: worst Casting of "Molly Shannon and Selma Blair on Kath & Kim. How do you take a popular Australian comedy that is entertaining, amusing and a big hit and turn it into something that is nearly unwatchable? Add these two gals."
What it's about: it's a remake of the Australian hit about a selfish mother (Molly Shannon) whose life is turned upside when her equally annoying grown daughter (Selma Blair) moves back in.
What the reviewers have said: It's - 'one of the most mean-spirited comedies in the history of television.'
I think any thing this white-trash-y - full of dysfunctional folks - is clean escapism fun - especially after a long day at the office.Another day, another year-end list. After reading -- Yahoo TVs "The Best and... more
BOSTON – Paul Benedict, the actor who played the English neighbor Harry Bentley on the sitcom "The Jeffersons," has died. He was 70.
Benedict was found dead Monday on Martha's Vineyard and his brother, Charles, said authorities were still investigating the cause of death.
Benedict began his acting career in the 1960s in the Theatre Company of Boston, alongside such future stars as Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman and Al Pacino.
Benedict went on to appear in a number of movies, including a role as the oddball director in "The Goodbye Girl" with Richard Dreyfuss. But he was mainly known for his role as Bentley in "The Jeffersons," which ran on CBS from 1975 to '85.
