The WB's Loss is NBC's Gain

Jeff -- yes, he only needs one name -- points me to this video:



Wise choice, NBC. Those guys are funny (and hot).

    That was a great pilot. WTF were they thinking passing? No minds in HW. They need to get a brain and stop paying focus groups and throw it on the web......

    I have to say I thought this idea was quite original and funny. I loved the special guest in central perk also. It would be good if a special guest was in every show, a well know sitcom face. That might be hard to pull off but I'd like it.

    p.s. sidetrack - What book are you (Amanda and others) reading?

    funny stuff....though i look forward to the day when the media pot of gold isn't a deal at one of the 'old media' major networks...

    Amanda,
    Reality check. Men; hetero and retro, like watching YOU. Please get your game together and roll camera.
    There are LOTS of events, local and world worthy of your commentary.
    You are very attractive, appealing, smart and beguiling. Please don't serve us Hamburger Helper when only Amanda will do!

    Couple typo's in my last comment sorry about that.

    Mark can I just say that Amanda doesn't want to put something substandard out for people to see. They have seen the quality of the rocketboom shows and don't want something rushed. I for one am willing to wait for the whatever comes from Amanda next.

    If that sounds a bit kiss ass sorry.

    ....because those were real fears and you conquered them.

    That video is awesome, i just wish i could speak like that.

    This show looks kind of funny - as a skit.
    Some very funny TV sitcom gags though - like the guy with his back to the camera.

    I doubt this premise would continue to be very funny for more than a few episodes. I'm sure the two guys yelling "Awesome!" every few minutes wouldn't get old, would it? :)

    A side note... if YOU could ask for any set you wanted, would you ask for "Friends"?
    Why not ask for something GOOD like a set from "Green Acres", "WKRP" or "The Jeffersons"?

    Still, they were right...they are more entertaining than "According to Jim"!

    I looked this page first time. Highly succeeded wouldn't be an adequate judgment. It*s just success.

    Now this is nice. This pilot does have its moments. I wonder where the show could have gone to. But maybe the internet helps it to a second chance!

    Tina Fey officially off 'SNL'

    Brush up that resume! It would be the dream job!

     
  • At 8:55 AM, Blogger WO7 said…

    They are funny guys, but why take a perfectly nice vlog and make it into TV? This looks like TV's attempt to suck some of it's audience off of the web and back to the status quo....

    I that was funny. Not only is it a great idea, but is also kind of messes with your head. But I have to call BS. No guys like friends THAT much. Good idea though.

    Vincent,

    Tina fey is not longer on SNL.
    Maybe it will actually be funny next season!

    I guess the only thing that bothers me about sitcoms nowadays are the sets and the bad punchy writing.
    Maybe sitcoms should take a cue from Lost and film more like a movie than a 3 camera studio set up. It is just old; its been around since Lucy.

    Jajajajaa.
    This is incredible!!!! Loved it!!!!!!!

    Di the WB pass in on this?????
    Are THEY CRAZY????

    Din NBC "get it"?????

    I'd watch this show every week.

    did NBC pick up Nobody's Watching?

    cause that would be a little bit of awesome.

    i haven't seen any news they did.

    He has the same jean jacket and as me! and thanks guys for representing ohio! How was blogher?

     
  • At 4:50 PM, Blogger tangerine said…

    I am sure to watch Nobodys Watching not just because it is fresh, funny and the guys are "hot"

    But because they were turned away from WB.....
    .. posted their shows on YouTube
    .. collected a large following through YouTube
    .. that was picked up by mainstream media
    .. catching the attention of NBC to get them signed!!

    The internet is so powerful!

    It's a good concept but I got tired of their "antics" really quickly.

    Hey Ho Amanda lady, I really liked this show. Thanks for putting it up. I think these guys are way funny and fun. Sometimes people just get too critical too quick. Well, everybody's got an opinion, eh?

    This makes me WISH I had television! argh!

    yeah i posted this to VBYG a few weeks ago. I thought it was a great pilot.

    i once had an idea for a show like this... to be called 'pilot' and it would have been same genre as this, but every week it would be a different pilot that the characters would star in.
    think 'friends' where everyone is an actor trying to get a tv gig. show within a show type of experiment where the show within is diff each week. plenty of room for writers to play with this format.

    OMG! That is some awesome! These guys really are geniuses! Now if they can do that I can only imagine the places Amanda UnBoomed could go.

    this show is going to be huge!

    the perfect post-modern answer to Friends
