Twitter Users Save NBC!

After spending 30 minutes mocking NBC’s God-awful THE MARRIAGE REF last night, Twitter users took pity upon the network by banding together in an attempt to help it come up with something… well, watchable. The idea was spearheaded by @DustyTrice, who kicked things off with a tweet saying, “NBC will greenlight any show pitched. We need to develop a show for @NBC. Right now. On Twitter.” What followed was a slew of suggestions, some of which you can see after the jump.

@MikeRylander A struggling network fires one of their most popular employees (Conan O’Brien). Wackiness (and bankruptcy) ensues.

    Oh clever tweeters. The last one is actually legitimate and I would totally watch (although, 30 Rock already captures some of it).

    I think they should go with the fake 30 Rock shows from 2 seasons ago (mentioned in SeinfeldVision – another thing they should do):
    America’s Next Top Pirate, Are You Stronger Than a Dog?, MILF Island

  • allisonhiro

    I would watch MILF Island as long as they had DeBorah.

  • I would watch any fake show from 30 Rock. Sad thing is, any of those shows would be funnier than 30 Rock this season (seriously, S1-3 were great. What happened?!)

    -Struggling network producers recruit internet users to create a new tv series online….. it actually sounds like a genuine (albeit sad) tv show pilot
