It's got to be called Shat my dad says
CBS will air a sitcom in which William Shatner plays a cranky old fogie whose rants are captured by a Twitter-obsessed son with a million followers. No, we're not kidding. The program is based on the real-life Twitter feed shitmydadsays, which claims more than 1.3 million followers. It was started last August by Justin Helpern …
Excuse me, but how is this even possible? If they're too terrified to use the word "shit" in the title, there may be a problem. The dad in question is an Olympic-grade practitioner of full-bore swearing...
It'd be like making a TV version of Bruce Schneier's blog without mentioning security.
"CBS will air a sitcom in which William Shatner plays a cranky old fogie whose rants are captured by a Twitter-obsessed son with a million followers."
Shatner's on YouTube, already... and it's way better than this show will be, because it's Shatner, and not just Shatner playing some Dad.
Such uninformed comments, has anyone here ever read shitmydadsays or is this a knee jerk reaction to the word twitter (well if you don't understand it, knock it eh)?
I do actually reckon this has the potential to be pretty funny, (potential mind you). As long as they keep the swearing and don't shy away from the less politically correct aspects of the dad's pearls of wisdom...
