    A "single-camera laffer" will be coming to ABC. A sitcom based on Mike Greenberg's "Why My Wife Thinks I'm an Idiot."


    It will co-star a slovenly co-host. George Wendt?

    Which sports radio host will be the next to get a sitcom? Francesa? Ordway?

    Didn't anyone learn from that craptastic show based on Kornheiser?

    didn't the exact same show, 'inspired' by kornheiser/wilbon, flop in the last five years or so? ??? ??? ???

    Didn't Theo Huxtable essentially play Wilbon?

    But because of that show we got to see more of Daniella Monet:

    Yep, Theo and Jason Alexander played the faux Wilbon and Mr. Tony in "Say What?" if memory serves me correctly.

    It's all about the ABC/ESPN cross-promotion. This will cost ABC virtually nothing to create, Greeny gets to talk about it on the radio forever, and if it fails, no big loss. If it stays on the air for even 13 shows, it's just one big commercial.

    I wish I didn't know this, but I think it was "Listen Up!"

    Nine out of 10 pilots never see the network schedule. I think it's safe to say this will not be the exception.
