    They should have come up with a more creative name for Cam, like "Opie".

    I don't see why it needs to be a satellite radio show as opposed to terrestrial radio. It's not like they'll be using salty language or addressing "offensive" subject matter on NBC.

    "Did he just spend the entire episode talking about the studio's lighting? And it's a two parter?"

    Since it's pretty clear who and what they're basing the show on, I'm guessing there will be a couple scenes throughout the show's likely 2 episode run featuring fights with management. I'm assuming since 20 minutes of the radio show = all 20 hours they broadcast that week, one 2 minute scene of him bitching about his boss will probably be thought of as an entire 22 minute episode by some folks.

    Collette Wolfe is in some weird place between "hot" and "oddly hot".

    Maybe because terrestrial is so rigid in it's format whereas Satellite can go for hours at a time, at least for O&A, Ron and Fez and Howard. I don't know if any of the other shows have any autonomy or if they have to hit regular breaks like the Morning Mash-up people.

    That's a stretch though, since it's probably not going to be realistic even beyond the language.

    Dane Cook playing a shockjock? AND there's a hole on the show? I can't wait to miss this.

    "magnetic grouch."

    Damned fine show.

    I predict never makes it to series.

    You are aware that this is not a Truman Show style fictional series about radio? Do you think the ability to do long form would even come up as a subject? And language? Fair enough, you can probably get away with more on nework television than you can on terrestrial-radio, but not as much as on satellite radio. Still, it wouldn't matter.

    I agree but in that scenario I give it to hot. I think she ticks closer to hot than oddly hot, though she is closer to the middle than either side.

    Though I do wonder- why satellite radio. Is Sirius-XM sponsoring it? Are they treating satellite like the dregs of radio? Do they think the word satellite makes it hipper? Because the concept sounds more like big market hero turned into small market loser.

    Sounds cool. Dane is a good guy, hopefully he gets Bob Kelly, Jimmy etc. spots as "guests" on his fictional show. Maybe if it is a hit, O&A can guest star once and a while.

    I suspect that some focus group thought that it would be perceived as being more edgy ...

    A show about an alpha-male that hates his chick co-host in your mind is "clear" they are basing it on O&A????
    Only on Wackbag

    Unless you mean Opie is the chick of course :action-sm

    Yeah I know I was just pulling out of my ass. My point was more to say that maybe they want "craziness" to go down with implied nudity, or implied swearing (bleeped for television like Arrested Development perhaps) or some other implied thing that they wouldn't show on Network anyways, so it makes sense.

    But, like I said, that's the only reason I can see. It's maybe just part of the inspiration of the creator or execs think it's more hip? Again, I'm aware I know nothing.

    This seems to be closely along the lines of 30 Rock, which I don't even think is signed to continue past 2012, and if it is, it's going on without Alec Baldwin.

    As a single camera shoot, who knows how it turns out. That siad, all the hip people who like 30 Rock tend to hate Dane Cook because of whatever it is. I don't know, he works out too much. I myself am not a huge fan but the hate for him is unfair, imo.

    Side note - Mira Sorvino shooting a pilot called "Trooper" where she plays a housewife that gets the bright idea to become a NY State Trooper. facepalm.jpg

    If they do it accurately, it will be the most boring show in the world. First half hour - writing speed citations. Second half hour - sitting in court listening to some moron try to use legal terms to prove he/she wasn't actually speeding. Once a season there will be a car chase. If the show lasts a few years, maybe she will have to shoot somebody.

    Yes, there's absolutely no connection here at all.


    You're right about one thing - only on wackbag.

    The Simpsons did it already. Seriously, they did.

    Honestly, I struggled to figure out which 202er Dane Cook is playing. The best I could come up with was Anthony.
