Somehow, Fox Wants to Turn Texts From Last Night Into a Sitcom

Sigh: the website Texts From Last Night, which gathers up funny text messages, is being turned into a TV show for Fox. Big Bang Theory writer Steve Holland will be collecting a paycheck attempting to create characters and a story around a collection of anonymous text messages. At least $#*! My Dad Says had two characters built into it. Next, a network is going to try to get someone to write iPhone: the Sitcom. People can just relate to the iPhone, see?

    Hmm, Google gets a lot of traffic, about due time they get a sitcom as well.

    Okay, this level of inanity could almost, almost, be understandable from the studio's perspective if Shit My Dad Says had been some sort of unexpected hit. But it wasn't. It was canceled.

    Dane Cook is getting a sitcom, The Simpsons might get cancelled because Fox doesn't want to give the amazing actors a reasonable pay cut (what?!), and now this?

    Is the world trying to incite a comedy riot?

    The silver lining: Steve Holland is TOTALLY in for it.
