Oh, No! Say It Ain't So!


CBS has just greenlighted John Mayer's Variety/music show! Why?!? Why ?!? Why?!?

"I want to return talent to television...I want a show that rewards true talent." says the ever-smug Mayer.
Gag me. Stop slaggin' American Idol, you pompous, pretentious douchebag! You giant asshat!
Call me when it's cancelled.

  1. This just confirms that there hasn't been an original thought in TV in about a decade.

  2. I don't know, "John Mayer's Magical Musical Entertainment Emporium and Good Time Variety Hour featuring Pink Lady and Jeff" sounds pretty fresh to me.

  3. SD: There's nothing new in the universe. But, add John Mayer to it and there's a whole new smell to old ideas.

    Kirby: It may be fresh, but I won't watch it. Everytime that man opens his mouth I want to punch him. He irritates the shit out of me.

    Anyone else running a variety show I'd watch...except maybe Mel Gibson.

  4. Why doesn't CBS offer us a show. We could totally be the next Rowan and Martin.

  6. It seems like everybody and their mother has tried to do a modern-day primetime variety show recently. I can't remember any of them lasting more than a few shows. Changes are the suffering won't be long.

  7. I see I'm going to be spending a lot of time in the bedroom far from the madding TV.

    Though I'm w/SkyDad in that I'd love to watch the 2 of you put on a show!!

  8. Well, the simple answer to why is Jennifer Aniston.

  9. Variety shows only worked in the past because they had hosts with personalities that we wanted to hang out with. Now you can't get on TV until you have your personality beaten out of you (or you are the subject of a celebrity dating show on E!), ergo variety shows are dead.

    That's why this show is doomed to fail more than anything else.
