Did I Read This Right?

The following quote is from CNN in an article about the networks' Fall TV schedules.

"As previously announced, Matt LeBlanc's "Friends" spinoff, "Joey," will take over his old show's key time slot Thursday at 8 p.m. And the "Frasier" time slot at 9 p.m. Tuesday will be filled with an animated comedy, "Father of the Pride," about the lions that perform in Siegfried and Roy's Las Vegas show."

Um, really? An animated series about Siegfried and Roy's show? That's a comedy? Because rampaging lions mauling their trainers just spells funny to me!

well, yes, just imagine Bart Simpson
with stripes and really sharp teeth...

Plenty of biting sarcasm is sure to make it a hit!

I don't think so.

And yet, they can't seem to find a good spot to leave Scrubs. I swear if they cancel Scrubs for the Siefried and Roy cartoon, I will be so mad!

Ladies and gentlemen, television as we knew it is dying a slow, painful death.

Maybe they should let viewers phone in and vote on who gets mauled each week!
