Also sold through ABC Studios is The Alzheimer’s Project, a single-camera script at ABC based on an original idea by Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment. Written by Sam Sklaver (HBO’s Bored To Death), it’s a comedy about a father with early onset Alzheimer’s trying to reconnect with his family. Kaplan is executive producing, with Sklaver co-exec producing. Sklaver, repped by WME and Wetdog Entertainment, is also developing Jenny’s an Idiot for Hulu.


This should be....interesting. IMO, it's going to take incredible writers to make this work.


Add an autistic son and I'm interested. Seriously

Do you have On Demand? That's how I've been watching. But yes, The League this week was both ewww gross and ewww :face: Just not funny at all. I didn't really start watching the show until about the 3rd year, where I would gut laugh almost every episode but its been really weak for a while in my opinion. Feels like every week they have to go out of their way to force in a recurring joke so people remember it. Like Ruxin's team name or the kids name Chalupa Batman. Like scenes where they're sitting around on the couch. They'd rather make the conversation feel unnatural and have nothing to do with the plot just so they can force in something from prior episodes.

Sunny's been pretty good, IMO. I like the stories and twists. The Country Mac character was amazing.

Watched a show on HGTV today called "Flip or Flop". Not very groundbreaking or anything but I find the wife on it super hot.

halfway thru season 2 of house of lies. i am enjoying this season much more and like how there seems to be a consistent thread to each episode. season 1 was too cut and dry each episode with each consulting gig and then the take over in the background. season 2 seems more cohesive

Mrs. Krabable is being retired from the Simpsons since her voice person died this past Friday. This is unrelated to the character being killed off.
