Tied to the Hitching Post

Fox has one other new sitcom for us, UnHitched. I’m not sure when this airs, because Fox has no info. I saw some sites that said “Fall” and one that said January. So, I don’t know. Maybe its a midseason replacement. I was gonna talk about those after I gave the shows airing in the Fall a chance to tank.

I’ve not seen one commercial for this show. It’s like no one but me knows about it. So maybe it really is a midseason replacement.

In any case, I watched the official clip at Fox (there’s no blurb about the show there, just the clip) and a clip I found at myspace.

I’m sorry, but why aren’t these shows funnier??? It appears to be about a group of 30-something friends and their advertures in dating. There was a monkey and a leprachaun in the clips I saw, which definitely makes it weird, but I’m not sure it makes it funny.

I also found a Craig Bierko fan site. They seem to have more info than Fox about this show. And I do think that he’s cute, so I’m not sure if that proves I’m more or less shallow than people think.

UPDATE, here is a few excerpts from the show:

American Idiots

Aliens in America is the only new CW sitcom. It has an official website where you can watch several clips from the show.

Although I think I see what they are after in terms of the feel of the show (something like the Wonder Years meets Married with Children), I think this outsider thing has been done before. You know, geeky kid with no friends, befriends other geeky kid with no friends (in this case a foreign exchange student), and they take on the world. Or whatever.

Also, I’m not sure I want to laugh at jokes aimed at Pakistanis as terrorists. I object to the entire point of something like that, which is that Americans are stupid intolerant bigots who think that anyone from another country is evil. Beyond which, I don’t think any joke aimed at 9/11 could possibly be funny. As they actually posted a clip with just such a joke, I’m afraid of what else they might think is joke-worthy.

I doubt I’ll be watching. By the way, my kids had a great time with a blank white puzzle we bought from Amazon.com. As the name suggests, the puzzle is blank white and allows your kids to draw and color each piece. Once finished, they can put it together as a cool completed puzzle.…
