I was a little caught off guard by my surprise victory in CC 232, so needless to say, I had nothing prepared for a new contest. So bear with me.
Many of you know that recently the show that, in my humble opinion, was the only thing worth watching on television (Angel) was cancelled. So how do I work this into a contest? Strips slandering the decision making at the WB? Sweet revenge, yes, but not a lot of potential for teh funnie. Strips about vampires with souls? Eh, doesn't seem like a contest people could sink their teeth into (pun intended).
Then, it came to me. Picture this: You are a recent hire in the WB's programming department and the job of replacing Angel on the fall schedule has been given to you. Given the sorry state of American television (our beloved non-American strippers will just have to imagine how awful it truly is), pitch a show that would potentially succeed in a world of crappy reality shows, unfunny sitcoms, and 27 different versions of C.S.I.
Series are welcome, for shows that need a little more exposition (of course, the less exposition it needs, the more likely it is to succeed nowadays). You can even use old comics if you happen to have somewhere made a strip in which a fictional television program is somehow described or acted out.
If these rules are too confusing, you have my expressed written consent to paddle my arse and/or make me explain it in clearer terms.
Judging will be Monday. Strip on, brothers and sisters!
I has a flavor!
