Here Are 15 of My Ideas for New Cable Channels. Care to Add to the List?

gilbert-gottfriedBarely Missed Putts:  footage of golf balls barely missing the hole, 24 hours a day.

The Choking Channel: ‘round the clock video of people choking on food.

The Front Door:  non-stop footage of fat guys with oversized sideburns and fedoras, sometimes capes, entering and leaving video game stores.

The Too Soon Channel:  a broadcast home for people who like to make jokes about tragedies shortly after they occur.

Collation!

Cubicle Workers Airing Their Grievances

Racist Diatribes with the Greatest Generation

Newscasters Rolling Their Rs

Pixilated Nudity and Ragtime:  Heavily pixilated nude scenes from movies, accompanied by ragtime music.

Admittedly, a few of those might work better as a half-hour weekly program, but I’m pushing for the full network treatment.  Hell, why not?

In the comments section, please add to the list.  We can do much better than a measly 15 new television channels.  Right?!

And I’ll see you guys again tomorrow.

Have a great day!

    On the TSA channel they could have a show staring Corky from Life goes On as Patrick Downs – TSA Supervisor.

    The ACK
    Short for the Acronym Channel
    Dedicated to shows with acronym titles like MASH, NCIS, CSI, etc.
    Their slogan could be we’re too lazy to say it, so we shortened it.

  23. says

    WEIRDOS SPOTTED AT WALMART. That would garner a richer audience than OWN.

    Based on the frequency of NCIS reruns, I wonder if there should be an “NCIS RERUNS” channel.
