This American Life Contest!

| 3 comments

Showtime was nice enough to give us a big beautiful poster for their new television version of This American Life.... and as if that wasn't enough, it's autographed by the Ira Glass.

So: we're giving it away.

Here's the contest: call our listener hotline at 206-984-4FUN and tell us a story. Like This Life, we have a theme: debuts. Keep it pithy and punchy, if you please. Interpret the theme broadly. Leave your name and phone number.

The TV TAL debuts on Showtime March 22nd, and our contest ends at the end of the month.

"Box Office Poison"

This was the funniest thing I've ever seen on television, or at least on a talk show. I don't think I thought or talked about anything other than this for three solid weeks after I saw it. God bless Norm Macdonald, and God bless Conan O'Brien for going with it.

Podcast: Dan Harmon of Acceptable.tv

Show: 
Bullseye

Dan Harmon is the executive producer of Acceptable.tv. It's a new multi-platform show from VH1 that builds on the success of Channel 101 and Channel 102, cult comedy phenomena in New York and Los Angeles.

Each episode of the television program will feature five short "shows," each about three minutes in length. The shows will also be posted on the website, where viewers will vote on which shows will return for a new episode the next week, and which will be "cancelled." In addition to shows produced by the staff of Acceptable.tv, the program and website will highlight user-created series.

Before co-creating Channel 101, Dan Harmon and his writing partner Rob Schrab co-created the cult television pilot Heat Vision & Jack, a parody of Knight Rider which starred Jack Black as a "super-intelligent renegade astronaut" and Owen Wilson as his talking motorcycle. Their antagonist was character actor Ron Silver, who played himself.

Acceptable TV: Legal Law

| 2 comments

The folks behind Channel 101 and Channel 102 have a new project: Acceptable.TV. It's a lot like Channel 101 -- each TV show will have five short films, each presented as the first episode of a new "series." Over the weekend, the audience will choose which they'd like to see return. On the next episode, three are cancelled, and two renewed. They'll air "series" created by the Channel 101 team, as well as some created by viewers.

The first show airs March 23rd, but they've added some videos to the site already. Above is "Legal Law," starring our pal Jen Kirkman.

Tommorow, check out our interview with the series' Executive Producer, Dan Harmon.

The Internet's Got Tracy Morgan Goin' Nuts

This is amazing and delightful, and I can only thank Amelie Gillette for bringing it to the attention of the American People.

The host of the show does a great job, I think, in keeping it together while the behind the camera people laugh uproariously.

Does anyone still have that MP3 of Tracy going crazy on morning radio for like 20 minutes straight? I think I posted it here once, but I lost it.
