CBS: Shell Shocked
1: I gotta say, guys, I'm loving the schedule. We got Cane, Moonlight, and Kid Nation -- it's looking sexy. Very sexy.
2: I'm getting off on it just thinking about it.
3: Remind me, what's Moonlight again?
1: Dude gets bitten by his vampire bride, uses his powers for good, and falls in love with a mortal.
3: Oh, right. Right, the "Angel Becomes a P.I." thing.
2: Yeah, but it takes place in New York, so it's totally different.
Grunt: Sorry to interrupt, but, um...
1: Yeah? What's up?
Grunt: There's another bag of peanuts for you guys.
1, 2, and 3: ...
Grunt: From the Jericho fans.
2: Oh, right. Okay, just dump 'em in the breakroom.
1: What's the deal with the peanuts again?
3: Because of the whole "nuts" thing in the finale? Stanley and getting the war story wrong, and then Skeet saying "nuts" over the walkie-talkie, remember?
4: I really like peanuts.
1: Anyway, we're thinking that with the schedule set to have--
Grunt: There's another bag.
Grunt: Well, it's bigger.
4: Dude, can we get some of that in here? Thanks.
2: Can we get back on task, please? Now, we want to leverage --
Grunt: Look, uh...
2: Another bag?
Grunt: Sort of "another bags." Bags. Plural.
3: You know what? For any and all future bags of peanuts from distraught fans, family, and Skeet, put them the breakroom -- ALL of them. Got it?
1: Do you think a little Lord Of The Flies-like brutality around sweeps is too much to hope for on Kid Nation?
THREE WEEKS LATER
1: Thanks for coming in, people. I know it's been a rough couple of weeks.
3: No more peanuts, please? No more!
1: Shhhhh. It's okay. It's all going to be okay.
4: I like putting peanuts on ice cream. Just vanilla ice cream and peanuts. No frills, you know? Just the sweet and the salty to satisfy all cravings.
