Sounds like a product-placement saturated version of Workaholics.

Except Workaholics is kind of funny.

"Kind of" funny?

Workaholics is extremely tight butthole.

Why not? It can't be less entertaining than "shiat my dad says", and more people have probably heard of it.
 
2012-05-20 06:24:58 PM  
Oh Mitz-Plasse, you were funny as a juvenile. Can you transition away from the Apatow-inspired stuff?
 
2012-05-20 06:27:31 PM  
Will there be a scene where penny-pinching diners descend on a restaurant like locust and overwhelm the place then go online and trash them for not having enough help on hand and put the place out of business? Because that would be funny.

Can't be any worse then their new show coming next week called "dogs in the city"

That's My Bush was actually funny. When I started my collection of TV shows that was one of the ones I made sure was in there.

Doesn't really sound like a show based on Groupon. Sounds more like they're trying a Big Bang Theory/The Social Network sitcom which will have a lot of tech and nerdy pop culture references. Groupon was probably just the company that offered them the most money for the advertising. Could as easily have been Instagram or Zynga
 
2012-05-20 07:54:12 PM  
A sit-com based on Groupon sounds about as funny as a sit-com based on, oh, I don't know, a company that sells reams of paper.

It had its moments but it was also pretty damn cringe worthy at times.

That won't work though. BBT has the market cornered on a show that stupid people think smart people sound like.

Then again, for some reason people watch Tosh.0.

I'm still waiting for Flo to get her own sitcom. Let's face it, she's more deserving than those farking cavemen.

Dude, seriously. I was so pissed watching the final episode when I realized they weren't going to tie up the plotline with the gypsy girl.

It will if we're legally obligated to watch it.

Groupon. Apply directly to forehead.

What is it with CBS, between sitcoms based on internet fads and hack ESPN hosts.
 
2012-05-20 09:29:14 PM  
and this is why 90 % pf the shows I watch are on cable channels

Because Hustler Video is about total accuracy with its impersonations.

/as opposed to "Who in our stable kinda looks like these people"?
 
2012-05-20 10:11:01 PM  
And the entertainment industry is baffled why people are going towards other entertainment. It's almost like they're not even trying anymore....
 
2012-05-20 10:16:38 PM  
I was going to say something about the fact that the sitcom is less about the specific location of the workplace than a couple of people who work there. Then I saw the title, Friend Me, and I realized that the people who made this thing are just stupid.
 
2012-05-20 10:17:24 PM  
CBS is sitting on a potential gold mine. They just need to have the balls to create the show Cool Story, Bro.

Tune in next for CSB on CBS.

It could be their Seinfeld and himym.

She's cute but does not look like Flo at all. I'd still bang it.

Fun fact: The guy who plays Bush is the same dude in the hospital bed from Metallica's One video, which featured clips from this movie: Link

Saw the film years ago. It was pretty good, from what I remember.

It is one thing to be inaccurate, it is another to be intentionally deceiving.

Where the hell can I get a $3 footlong sandwich?

She needs to do lesbo porn. The real Flo, not the fake Flo.

Also...Is that Richard Moll as the most interesting man in the world?

I honestly think networks are trying to see how farking stupid shows will have to get before people stop watching. Judging by how many awful sitcoms there are today (ie. all of them), that time won't be soon.

They better have a tie-in with Bones to wrap things up for Uncle Asshole to get the beatdown.
