Our Fall Preview continues with Trailer Trashes of My Generation, Outsourced, and %$#@ My Dad Says
My Generation, ABC
Cherie: My generation sux so I hope they mean someone else’s.
Chance of Success: If it has anything to do with Spencer or Heidi, set off a nuclear bomb now.
Flipit: This show is a fake documentary about what happens ten years after high school. I got teary watching it. I think because I was supposed to be Julia Roberts by now and I’m more Tyne Daly. Damn you show! Well, America likes wallowing in depression so this should do well. Plus, it’s one of the only new dramas not about freaking cops or lawyers. I hope it stays on awhile, because the only way I am ever in touch with my emotions enough to sob mid binge is when I’m watching TV and this seems to fit that bill.
St. Claire of Assisi: Do you remember where you were the first time you met an Iraqi refugee with 9/11 AIDS while you were cleaning up New Orleans? John Kerry subprime mortgages Madoff!
Chance of Success: 1.1%
Video chat is SO OUR GENERATION you guys.
HoneyGangsta: I literally get mad when I run into people from high school. I thought I was done with them at graduation. This show is like my worst nightmare.
Chance of Success: 2%
SexyPanda: I don’t know if I need to reminisce about shit that happened 10 years ago. I still remember it. We’ll see.
Chance of Success: 50%
Bbitz: Probably the best new show of the season.
Chance of Success: 0%
Bbitz: A show that makes me pissed I didn’t think of it first. This might do for Indians what “Will & Grace” did for gays in America. Less threatening, more clownish.
Chance of Success: 50%
Cherie: Is this being filmed in a 7-Eleven?
Chance of Success: Hell I’ll watch
St. Claire of Assisi: Uh…at least they got actual Indian actors…right?
Chance of Success: -50% It actually hurts the chances of other shows. This is why we won’t get another season of Running Wilde.
Monamonzano: Zany Indians! Why I never…
SexyPanda: I sigh, only because this show is replacing Parks and Rec. Hopefully, it dies quickly and Leslie Knope is back in my life again soon.
Chance of Success: 40%
PottyMouth: Isn’t Indian food so weird? Aren’t their accents so HILARIOUS? Ugh. This show looks to be as funny as that mobile phone commercial with the two Indian guys. Pass.
Chance of Success: -25%
Flipit: Is this based on the crappy movie of the same name that no one saw? I laughed at the preview, but I don’t know how funny our unemployed country is gonna find a bunch of cute Indians doing their jobs for fifty cents an hour. As long as I don’t have to wait on hold for half an hour with this cast to get my cable bill straightened out, I say good on them.
Chance of Success: 70%
#$%# My Dad Says, CBS
HoneyGangsta: I love Shatner, but seriously, how far can you stretch a Twitter account? One, two episodes?
Chance of Success: 10%
Cherie: My Dad said never mix beer with milk.
Chance of Success: 20% unless there’s mostly booze.
St. Claire of Assisi: Peas and rice I’m excited for this show!
Chance of Success: One hundred million percent!
SexyPanda: LOVE the Twitter feed; think the show only has material for one season. (But I’ll watch! Especially if the dad talks about poops and how much of a pussy his son is!)
Chance of Success: 65%
Bbitz: What kind of !@#% wouldn’t love this show?! This @#!@#.
Chance of Success: 10%
PottyMouth: I just can’t. I tried, really I did. Okay, I didn’t. What of it?
Chance of Success: I don’t know about chances of success, but chances of me watching this? NIL.
Flipit: I love sarcastic bitter funny people. I was excited for this one because the main character sounds like an Archie Bunker type and that old bastard is one of my heros. Unfortunately, he’s played by Shatner in a fishing vest. WTF? That’s like Frasier starring in Home Improvement. The Twitter feed is funny, this trailer isn’t. Is Don Rickles still alive? Cuz he should be the star of this. And the creators of Will and Grace should know by now that if they want a successful show they need Jack and Karen.
Chance of Success: This should make it a season based on the source material alone.
Monamozano: You wanna see shit my dad says? Get him a little hammered on my front porch, then ask him about Medical Malpractice reform. Bam! Where’s my check?
My Generation (ABC), @#$% My Dad Says (CBS), and Outsourced (NBC) all begin tonight! My Generation will be recapped here by St. Claire of Assisi.
Ronnie Karam has been with TVgasm since 2006 , which has given him the opportunity to make fun of hundreds of TV's most loved and hated reality whores. His plan in life was to be Julia Roberts but that plan was stolen by, well, Julia Roberts. He'll get you one day, JULIA ROBERTS!! When not making himself giggle for the gasm, Ronnie performs improv and sketch comedy at IO West in Hollywood a couple of times weekly while using the lovely California days to audition for commercial roles such as "ADORABLE MEXICAN UNCLE". Seriously. He would like to thank Jesus, Buddha and Xenu for the blessings they've bestowed. The writers here are the best around, and he's honored to be associated with them.
