    Yes, "Shit My Dad Says" is getting a pilot for CBS, written by the "Shit My Dad Says" Tweeter.

    It's not "Shit My Great Grandad Says."

    I know there hasn't been a post here in a while but last night's episode was pretty funny. The story line of Vince's celebrity sex list was really good.

    The one show I saw, don't know if it was the pilot or not, sucked ass. It ended with this big confrontation where the kid tried to psychoanalyze the dad and got on him for not being touchy-feely with his kids, and the dad said he'd try to do better. That was so far from the dad's actual character that I figured the script writers had never taken five minutes to read the Twitter feed or the two hours required to get through the book, and thus the TV show would not represent the material it was supposed to.

    I gave up after two episodes. I know it's getting good ratings, but holy shit did that show suck.

    I don't care if it's turned into the next Seinfeld, I'm not going back.

    I lasted about five minutes of a recent episode. Two of the characters thought they were married but it turned out they weren't, and they wanted to get married again at Shatner's house. Lame and unfunny, and I didn't see any hope for improvement.

    Congrats to Justin Halpern, though, for finding a winning formula and milking everything out of it that he possibly could. Given how unfunny this show is, based on the five minutes I've seen, it'll probably last 10 years and bring him mondo syndication bucks in addition to whatever he is making as the creator and writer.
