Did They Learn Nothing From Carpoolers?

by Angel Cohn June 2, 2008 11:40 am
It is official. There are no new ideas for television shows. TBS (which I have heretofore only tuned into for My Boys and Seinfeld) is debuting a "microseries" about commuting. I was subjected to the horror that is Carpoolers and that was not funny. Watching people do what I'm forced to do for an hour each day is not entertainment. Apparently this teeny tiny show (which starts tonight during Sex and the City) that is basically in place of commercials, will focus on four women who chat while going back and forth to work together each day. If this is anything like the conversations I overhear on the bus (people need to quit it with the cell phones in enclosed public places), I imagine it will be completely riveting and involve a lot of discussion about bad boyfriends who forget to call them late at night, what kind of foods give them gas (awkward when you are sitting next to them) and what color they should make their bridesmaids wear for their upcoming dream wedding that they are planning really quickly because their bitchy frenemy just announced that her wedding was going to have the color scheme they originally wanted. These are actual subjects I've heard girls gabbing about in just the last three weeks while riding back and forth from NY to NJ. Like I said, fascinating stuff. Better still, Commuter Confidential is being sponsored by Match.com and Revlon, so it will probably involve the girls applying eyeshadow while driving and talking about how they've met their soulmate on the internet. I almost feel bad for the poor writer who sold out their ambitions to write these presumably lame minisodes. Almost.
