Give Nobody's Watching some love, y'all!

nobodys watchingGreat article over at Zap2It explains what the hell is going on with our friends from Nobody's Watching. Essentially, they need some love from the internet to get their show on NBC. That's why we've seen so many video shorts from the boys (still playing their characters of Derrick and Will) lately. NBC ordered six scripts from them this summer and gave them some foolin' around money to keep buzz alive on the internet. Zap2It reports that NBC has until February to decide whether to greenlight production of new episodes of the show.

In the meantime, they are using NBC's money to create video shorts spoofing 'Til Death, Mentos, 24, etc. The article includes an interview with show creator (and Scrubs creator) Bill Lawrence, who says the new Nobody's Watching website is about what the Derrick and Will characters have been doing for the last year-and-a-half since WB decided not to air their show. He says, "They can't go home out of embarrassment: They told everyone they were going to be on tv and they weren't." Lawrence says, if NBC does pick up the show, the last webisode on Nobody's Watching's website will reveal who posted the pilot to YouTube.

Watched a couple of the original segments on youtube. No thanks. I'd be more interested in watching Ricky Gervais's fake show from Extras. And I'm with Ricky's-agent-Steve there: it's really not my cup of tea.

Nobody's Watching SUCKED. A show making fun of TV needs to be smart, different and funny. The youtube thing revealed pretty clearly that show was witless, like everything else on TV and about as funny as an episode of McNeil Lehr News Hour.

Here's to hoping another lame sitcom never hits the air.

If nobody's watching hits the air, and Studio 60 doesn't canceled, will they be enough too constitute a subgenre of TV shows about TV writers who hate modern TV
