I’m still working out the kinks in the lineup but likely shows to be canceled during our first season may include:

  • Weapons of News Destruction
  • News With Spews
  • Leave It, It’s Beaver
  • Frenemies
  • Know Your Enema
  • P.S.I. – Pounds Per Square Inch
  • Death Island
  • Termination Tuesday – Sudden Death
  • The Last Least Loser
  • The Dr. Philly Show
  • Celebrity Rebar

For sponsors we are actively seeking banks, credit cards, pharmaceutical companies and fast food. That is, everyone except you, Chick-Fil-A.
