Comedy Central renews Mind of Mencia, Lil' Bush

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 2nd 2007 2:01PM

Carlos MenciaComedy Central has renewed two of its shows, Mind of Mencia and Lil' Bush.

Carlos Mencia's show is actually the number one 10 PM cable show with men aged 18-24. Yeah, I know, that sounds like an awfully specific ratings number to brag about, but these people know what they're doing with all this stuff. This blog post is the number one rated blog post about Comedy Central that was posted in the afternoon of October 2, 2007 by a guy drinking a hot chai.

NBC selling interview with Princes William and Harry on iTunes

Harry, William, and MattFrom the Things I Don't Understand file: NBC is selling video of Matt Lauer's interview with Prince William and Prince Harry on iTunes, even though the entire interview is available on MSNBC.com for free.

Now, before you say "nobody would buy that," please note that the $1.99 video is the number two TV video on iTunes right now, right behind video of the recent Miss Universe Pageant. Just kidding. Actually, number one right now is the latest episode of Starter Wife. The rest of the top 10: recent eps of The Office, Lil' Bush, The Starter Wife, Kyle XY, The Starter Wife, Hannah Montana, Stargate: SG-1, and Studio 60.

I guess if you buy it from iTunes you can keep it forever and watch it over and over and over.

What I'm watching this summer: Anna's list

I'm actually looking forward to summer television this year as a break from all the hype and mania surrounding shows like Lost, 24, and American Idol. I get a little burned out on all the talk as the mainstream media outlets (Today, Good Morning America, all cable news channels) try to get their grubby hands on a fraction of the ratings for each show by covering them... heavily.

This summer, I'm taking it easy. I'm watching a few intense dramas that I enjoy and picking up a few more new programs that look light-hearted. No reality programming here. And, unlike Bob and Jonathan, I don't feel any allegiance to Studio 60. It's just not good.

Comedy Central orders Bush cartoon satire

by Anna Johns, posted Dec 4th 2006 1:28PM
comedy centralMore than five years after Comedy Central cancelled That's My Bush!, the network is planning to air another series that mocks the president. This time it's a cartoon called Lil' Bush: Resident of the United States. It portrays Mr. Bush and key members of his administration as "elementary school misfits". Characters include Lil' Cheney, who mumbles, and Lil' Condi, who does Lil' Bush's homework for him because she has a crush on him. Capers include torturing the lunch ladies Abu Ghraib-style when they serve falafels instead of hot dogs for lunch. The shorts are pretty funny, though they go for the easy laughs about the president's vocabulary and his cowboy attitude. It's a little more low-brow than edgier Comedy Central shows, The Colbert Report and The Daily Show.

The network has ordered six episodes of Lil' Bush, which got its start in September as animated clips through Amp'd Mobile. It's also up on YouTube, where it has been viewed more than 230,000 times. This news isn't going to sit well with the creator of Lil' Bill and Lil' Hill cartoons, who accuses the Lil' Bush creators of ripping him off.

YouTube video of the falafel episode is after the jump.
