Excuse me. We couldn't help noticing that naked ring finger on your left hand. Could it be that you're the target audience for a new comedy pilot recently ordered by ABC?

Based on a Huffington Post blog post by television writer Tracy McMillan titled 'Why You're Not Married,' the single-camera comedy will explore the dating habits of women seeking true love, men fleeing commitment, and other types familiar to anyone who ticks the "Single" box on their W4's, reports Deadline.

McMillan's piece -- posted in February -- became HuffPost's second-most-read blog entry ever, with 2.9 million views. The post also stirred up a bit of controversy, ending up as a talking point on CNN after critics thought it was too harsh on women.

In the post, McMillan offers six bluntly worded explanations for why single readers haven't yet tied the knot. Among them: 'You're a bitch,' 'You're shallow,' 'You're a slut,' 'You're a liar,' and 'You're not good enough.'

Her other series credits include AMC's 'Mad Men' and Showtime's 'United States of Tara.'
