God help us all. CBS’ $#*! My Dad Says has been deemed a success after healthy ratings for its debut, so of course CBS is applying the standard Hollywood playbook to any money-making venture: “if the public loves one, they’ll love two even more!”
Yes, another thoroughly unnecessary sitcom is in the works from CBS that’s based on a Twitter feed, and it’s a rather similar-sounding one. Where $#*! My Dad Says is based on a guy that tweets the profane, politically-incorrect stuff that his father spews round-the-clock, Shh… Don’t Tell Steve, the new show CBS is working on, is based on a Twitter feed by a guy that secretly tweets the kooky activities of his lazy, drunken roommate. The show will similarly follow an average guy who has to put up with an outrageously immature roommate.
CBS has signed a deal for a pilot script, which will be executive produced by avid Twitter user Ashton Kutcher.
