Re-efining the Boob Tube

Conservatives, disgruntled over the daily bias they have to endure from the likes of Steve Doocy, Megyn Kelly, and Glenn Beck are determined to have a television network that doesn't even bother to pretend it's 'Fair and Balanced'.

Ladies and Gentlemen, see what Comcast has now wrought, the RightNetwork, which proclaims it "focuses on entertainment with Pro-America, Pro-Business, Pro-Military sensibilities." So other than 24/7 marathons of "Patton" .
What could the lineup possibly be?

Reruns of "The Andy Griffith Show" and "Mayberry RFD", during the daytime hours -- looking back on the innocent days of the 60s when the South was only populated by white people and Andy Griffith wasn't an Obama supporter, research by Conservapedia.

Survivor: Grand Turismo: Kelsey Grammer teaches various Duggar children the joys of driving a car without all those socialist speed limits and lane rules.

Cops:Catch & Release focusing solely on Palin & Huckabee children with occasional special appearances by Ben Roethlisberger.

And don't forget sports, like a new basketball league populated solely with NASCAR Drivers, at least when the latter are not quoting biblical verse.

Other suggestions?

Dixie My Pickup

A take off of Pimp My Ride where a lucky ducky gets to have wheels and tires put on his PU and then gets it towed to a body shop where Dixie flags are emblazoned onto windows and quarter panels and the tail gate gets a rendition of 9/11 with a touching tribute to religion, "Every thing I Need to Know About Islam I learned on 9/11." Oh yeah, and a couple hundred empty Rebel Yell beer cans for a bed liner. Oh yeah, and a slightly used Lynyrd Skynyrd CD and Bic lighter.

I've seen a picture of this somewhere. Trying to remember.......

There is something so sweet about Kelsey Grammer leading the charge for the Right Network. A guy who built his career on being an effeminate heterosexual is the poster child for the repressed right wing? This is going to be a great week.

Their version of "Hannity and Colmes": Dennis Miller vs. Denis Leary.

Only this time, the Colmes guy is Leary.


Major Woody said...

Miller vs. Leary? I'd love to see it. From their perspective, they'd want to stack the deck in Dennis' favor, so it'd probably be more like Dennis Miller vs. empty chair.

Athenawise said...

You're probably right, Major Woody. It would continue the HANNITY vs. Colmes tradition. A true matchup wouldn't happen in a million years, but wouldn't it be pretty to think so.

Leary would shut Miller's pretentious yap forever.

Hell, you could kill two birds with one stone with that one--it could be their cooking show, too. :)
