CBS is the top network these days: with all of their grey-filtered crime dramas completely dominating the Nielsens, they also boast three of the most successful reality television franchises, and their sports department gives us NFL football and NCAA March Madness. That doesn’t mean that the network isn’t immune to dishing out heavy doses of programming that probably should have never seen the light of day. TVgasm has been on the front lines to document some of this madness from Spring Break Shark Attack to Locusts to the Gold Standard of them all, Riding the Bus With My Sister.
Well folks, CBS has done it again. In the grand tradition of TV movies seemingly created only for people to make fun of, we can look forward to Martha Behind Bars: It Wasn’t Such a Good Thing. This special presentation, airing Sunday Sept, 25th at 9PM Eastern, promises to chronicle “the events that led to the downfall and subsequent reemergence of America’s favorite domestic diva.” I think it was made to chronicle how you don’t need actual talent to make it in this town. It also demands that TVgasm blogs this movie and reports back to all of you.
We could describe it in more detail, but wouldn’t it be easier to just watch the commercial yourself? More after the jump.

This movie promises to be as poorly written, directed, and acted as anything in recent memory. Once again, it airs this Sunday, but B-Side and I will be in San Diego for Sunday Night Football, so it might take a couple of days for the recap to appear. But rest assured, if prior CBS precedent means anything, it will be worth the wait.
