Good News, Bad News for TV Fans

GOOD NEWS: CBS has taken the pressure off HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER by switching its 8PM timeslot with rookie sensation THE BIG BANG THEORY.

Worse still, CBS once again illustrates that either they have absolutely no confidence in HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, or they just don’t know funny.

    Have you read this week’s Ask Ausiello? Someone asked about HiMyM and Ausiello linked to a blind item he wrote last year about a certain comedy where one of the higher ups on the network it showed on didn’t think the show was funny at all and was just waiting to kill it. How anyone stupid enough to find HiMyM unfunny has a high-up job in the television industry is beyond me.

    ^ We’re talking about the network that has aired Two and A Half Men for years. A network that aired the show Yes Dear for multiple seasons. Clearly they somehow got lucky when they stumbled across HIMYM.

    There were some enjoyable performances on both last night’s idol and tonight’s.

    CBS don’t know funny, they do know procedural drama.

    Taylor could film Wolverine and still do FNL. I’m hoping the show will live.
