I know what you’re thinking: What’s in the drinking water over at CBS TV? And when will this madness end?
Actually, this time, the idea sounds like a winner. Ashton Kutcher has once again spearheaded the television sitcom rights of a popular weblog/Twitter feed to CBS. Dear Girls Above Me is a blog written by a man named Charlie McDowell, where he chroniclesthe “annoying dumb things” that the two girls who live in the apartment above him say on a regular basis and adds his own witty responses. McDowell himself is expected to work as one of the show’s writers.
The blog is a riot; you should check it out immediately. The titular “girls” are ridiculously stupid and entitled, cut from the same cloth as Paris Hilton and her ilk. Which makes them perfect fodder for sitcom hijinks.
But after all the blogs that have been snatched up lately for TV, I think it’s time to draw the line. Okay, Ashton? Know when to “no more.”
