This New CBS Show Sounds Really Great.

I'm serious!

I absolutely love the sound of this! CBS has ordered a pilot called Super Fun Night, a sitcom starring the fully hilarious and original Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids, tons of great stand up, random Australian television) and two other as-yet uncast ladies who will embark on a "funcomfortable" quest to have a "super fun night" every Friday. That is an absolutely delightful concept! Presumably, every episode will take place on a Friday night, in a sort of serialized, stand-alone format, featuring the three ladies getting into ill-advised hijinks every week. I rather imagine, although this is conjecture, that the consequences of one week's caper will rarely affect the following week's episode, except during sweeps. At least, that's how I'd write it.

Off the top of my head dream casting, I'd love if her two friends were played by Heather Matarazzo and Alison Pill. Ooh, or maybe Suzy Nakamura! Possibly Tina Majorino. Dana Davis could also be great. Oh, I can't decide! Who else would be good? 

Two concerns: it will be multi-cam, and you know how I feel about that. Also, it's on CBS, so I fear a glut of racist/sexist/homophobic/weightist jokes. I really kind of wish this winning premise would air on any other network, but hey, maybe CBS is trying to improve? Just please don't let the showrunner be Michael Patrick King.

    Henri and Devin are both huge fans of The Walking Dead comics and AMC television shows. For the duration of season one, they’ll be having a conversation discussing the finer points of Frank Darabont’s take on the series. They might argue, they may just high five, but they’ve promised to not bring up any aspects of the comics that could lead to a spoiler on the show. Feel free to join the conversation in the comments. Here are Devin’s two cents.
