NBC Outbids ABC For New
SARAH SILVERMAN Sitcom!!

I am – Hercules!!

UPDATE: NBC, home of Whitney Cummings'  "Whitney," won the bidding war.  If the Silverman project goes to series, NBC will have two sitcoms written by and starring hot Jewish girls.

ORIGINAL POST:

Two broadcast networks are in a hot bidding war for a new sitcom from recent basic-cable cast-off Sarah Silverman.

The new sitcom would star Silverman and be written by Silverman, Dan Sterling and Jon Schroeder, the trio who masterminded Comedy Central’s “The Sarah Silverman Program.”

(A fourth “Sarah Silverman Program” creator, Dan Harmon, left “Program” early on to create NBC’s acclaimed “Community.”)

The sitcom would be based on Silverman’s life, following a woman who finds herself single after living with her boyfriend for a decade.

According to Deadline, Ron Howard is godfathering the project, personally contributing to its pitch meetings.

    Sarah Silverman is a HACK!

  • Aug. 18, 2011, 6:35 a.m. CST

    Sarah Silverman is....

    by xcornealiousx

    A hack is right! Just because she's pretty and has a foul mouth, doesn't mean comedy genius! The only thing I enjoy her in...is movies like school of rock, where she is a tame supporting role. No more S.S. Hype! Specifically after the crap that was her comedy central show!

  • Aug. 18, 2011, 6:46 a.m. CST

    Seriously, why do they bother?

    by Xen11

    They will cancel it . It's all they do. It's all they ever do. If Sarah Connor can be killed, then everyone else can too.

    Once Again, There's That Overused Verb "Masterminded"

    by Aquatarkusman

    I really wonder if anyone believes she has a hit inside her

    by Detective_Fingerling

    she seems like she will always be a skit star based on her looks and her raunchy words. I don't think anyone goes into a pitch meeting with her and thinks she has the next friends or Seinfeld on her hands. She'd be better off getting a show on BBC for six episodes. I do want to see her rack though.

    Most annoying comedian after Dane Cook. Say 'Vagina' a few times and act like a cupie-doll. It's hilarious.

  • Aug. 18, 2011, 10 a.m. CST

    This is how it'll go:

    by gruntybear

    Sarah will make one off-color and very public crack about Jebus and or penises. TMZ will wet their panties running it non-stop for half a news-cycle. N/ABC will get cold feet and cancel the show before the New Year, running out the remainder of her 12 episodes on some late-nite Saturday night fill-in slot. This, you know to be true.

  • Aug. 18, 2011, 10:01 a.m. CST

    Give her and Chelsea Handler a sitcom together!

    by Shut the Fuck up Donny

    Oh...and make it so that they're topless most of the time. Then I may watch it.

  • Hmm?

  • Aug. 18, 2011, 10:10 a.m. CST

    She needs to pose naked, and be done with it.

    by V'Shael

    She pigged out a lot recently, got fat as fuck, and has been trying to slim down. Her genes are catching up with her, and she's going to be fugly in a few years. And that'll be it for her TV career.

    by Knobules

    Is it possible for lovely Sarah to actually be funny? Any dip shit can stand up and say "crap "poop toilet tampon" over and over. Drunks will laugh the rest just get uncomfortable. That is not being edgy or visionary. It is just garbage. She keeps this up and her career will go to the E! channel replacing Joan Rivers bitching about clothes with the fembots.

  • Aug. 18, 2011, 1:57 p.m. CST

    by Knobules

    I have tried many times to watch Sarah on CC or whatever. It ALWAYS starts with, oh my crap is blue today or some garbage....crickets.... If she IS putting out good material maybe she should put that in the front and not the sludge she dumps in the can every morning. Geez I watched Dennis Leary on an HBO special the other day. If that was his only way of showing his talent Id dis on him also. "Oh my crap is huge and poop and look at my butt and crap and poop". Really? is that NY humor or what is it? Thank god I know him from Rescue me and like the guy.

    Sarah Silverman = BASEMENT DWELLER RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE

    by montessaurus

    AHAHAHAHA - this whole talkback is too hilarious. I wasn't all that high on "Jesus Is Magic", but I thought the "Program" was a brilliant series. Obviously, humor is a subjective thing, but to see this kind of seething venom on an AICN talkback for someone like (a smart hot woman) Silverman is pretty telling of AICN in general. "Without Jimmy, she's nothing" = funniest thing I'll read on the internet today, calling it now.

    Also - SHE KILLED PARIS HILTON.

    by montessaurus

    When she was hosting whatever fucking awards show that was (fuck if I know which one), and she RIPPED THE BLACK FESTERING HEART OUT OF PARIS HILTON. Anyone else remember this? Paris Hilton was crying about how hurt she was, and even the media was coming to her defense, saying Silverman had gone to far. I think Silverman's reply was along the lines of (paraphrasing)"Like I give a fuck". Silverman basically showed Paris Hilton what a complete waste of human being she was, and I believe it is because of her act alone that we are no longer inundated with Paris Hilton 24/7. If that brave sacrifice doesn't qualify her for some kind of Nobel prize/geek respect - I have no fucking idea what will.

  • I remember the award show you're talking about where Sarah said some joke about Paris going to jail and the cell bars were going to be painted to look like penises. First off- I fucking HATE Paris - but Silverman dating Jimmy Kimmel until her show got cancelled shows it takes a slut to know a slut.

    She must give AMAZING BLOW JOBS under the table !!!

    by Big Dumb Ape

    Seriously? SERIOUSLY? A BIDDING WAR over fucking Sarah Silverman??? News Flash: if she was REALLY worth the money and acclaim, why wouldn't she still be doing her cable show, to astounding ratings? More to the point, why wouldn't far more stations be bidding to GET HER...you know, to secure such Earth shaking talent... ...as opposed to two FAILING networks, who trip over themselves repeatedly and who can't generate successful shows if their very lives depended on it? There's only TWO reasons NBC and ABC would end up in a bidding war... ONE -- being the completely uncreative, totally clueless suits that they are, the execs at both networks think they can catch "lightning in a bottle" by giving someone who was ONCE a semi-hot person a new show. The only problem being that Silverman's prior success was a one note act that people got tired of, which is why her time came and went fairly fast. Let's be honest here -- she was never more than a semi "okay" looking girl (NOT hot, just okay) who talked like the snottiest, sluttiest, stupidest bitch you could ever imagine -- so any entertainment came purely from shock value alone and nothing else. TWO -- given that this is Hollywood, land of incestuous inside deals and such, the only other reason I can think of is that she must give AMAZING blow jobs under the conference room table, right after the pitch meeting. At the very least, for anyone who doesn't live or work here in Hollywood -- trust me -- that helps to explain why so many atrocious things get develop deals or a greenlit pilot, before any commitment to series occurs. And for THAT to occur, you'd better be one all-out FANTASTIC FUCK in bed, who can do every position in the Kama Sutra no questions asked...!

  • Aug. 18, 2011, 9:34 p.m. CST

    This will replace Whitney once that is cancelled...

    by OutsideChance

    ...and this will, in turn, be replaced by whatever NBC decides to throw at the 9:30 pm Thurs slot after that. Probably a show about hip single twenty-somethings in a major city who all live in apartments the size of a ranch house.

    Ah, the 'Fish. Used to love that site, until they went down faster than Perez Hilton at a Black Eyed Peas concert. They suck so hard they make present day AICN look good in comparison Also, it's hard to get on board the Silverman Hate Train when we have apparent resident anti-semite professor_monster riding the rails. Fuck's sake.. not someone to be aligned with if you want to make a case, guys. I thought the CC series was pretty damn ballsy in that it wasn't afraid to skewer anyone. I don't hold out much hope for this new DisneyTV series, as there is NO FUCKING WAY she'll be able to get away with what she was on CC. It's funny to how Ricky Gervais was elevated to GOD-TIER (rightly so) for doing basically the same thing Silverman did a few years earlier and there's no where near the sort of backlash for him.

    @v'shael - my opinion on The Superficial

    by montessaurus

    I thought they used to be great when they had funnier writers, but now it seems all they do is hold out for the bikini/upskirt pics. Which is now, like... every other post. No complaints here on that front, but it seems they're not as funny as they used to be. Actually, I'd make the case that they're doing more harm than good nowadays. It seems like they're being run by a bunch of catty Perez wannabes who have nothing better to do than bemoan the fact that they're not female celebrities or some shit. In summation - fuck The Superficial.

  • Aug. 18, 2011, 10:30 p.m. CST

  • Aug. 19, 2011, 6:39 a.m. CST

    Dunno about these "superficial" pictures...

    by DarkHawke

    ...but the requisite IMDB search reminded me of Silverman's recent appearance on The Good Wife, where she played a lady who ran a site for "open marriage" types looking to hook up, based on her own "open marriage." I say she looked more than hot enough for the job. As for her comedy, I skimmed past her Comedy Central show and didn't care for it, but the "I'm Fucking Matt Damon" video is pure gold. Most sitcoms blow chunks, so I hold little hope for ANY of them, regardless of who's running it or starring. Kat Denning looks smokin' hot in the previews I've seen of "2 Broke Girls," but the actual show looks like a fucking train wreck.

  • I simply linked to two pics of Silverman, showing that she's AGED like cottage cheese. She might have been hot 10 years ago, when those pics in article were taken (for a Maxim photo shoot I believe) but those have been 10 long cheese pizza eating years. And they have not been kind to the little hairy bed-wetting Jewish princess with the poopy mouth.

    Humor is so subjective

    by mcgoocain

    Her CC show was hilarious and creative and cringeworthy all at the same time. Truly hysterical show in the best senses of the word. BTW- fucked her once. She was pretty good for someone with such hairy eyebrows- Came all over her sweet, sweet belly, cuz she said she didn't want to get pregnant, whatever that meant. She had some baggies, but she didn't want me to use those. Says they chafe too much. Sheesh - it sure is hard to please some women when you just wanna fuck and get out the door. I think the haters here just have limited senses of humor and feel intimidated by strong, attractive, intelligent women who remind them that they are weak, inadequate, ugly and stupid . And she was a better fuck than Joan Rivers, but by just a smidgeen....

    The whole tenor of this article is ugly. It started with the editorial decision by AICN to use only sexy pictures of her instead of the generic headshots they use for every other actor/actress. It basically enabled all the emotionally-stunted dudes on this board to indulge their inner pig. She's a unique voice in an otherwise boring sea of comedic mediocrity. To be honest, I think she and Sacha Baron Cohen are the only comedians doing anything interesting these days.

    it's always funny to hear how much hate SS generates with the zit-faced basement glitterati. SS isn't like her STAGE CHARACTER in person at all. She plays the ignorantly self-centered, helpful princess so well. She's done it since day 1, and it works by pissing off the people it's supposed to piss off. Thanks for playing along. Also, no one cares if you want to fuck her or not. The lesson here is, no one who's important in show biz wants to fuck YOU...physically, anyway. Her CC show was brilliant. The end.

    Maybe NBC bought the rights so they could bury it...

    SS show brilliant?! Um...cancelled!

    She's a hack. Riding the coattails of...actually...not Jimmy. I don't even think he's that funny. Bottom line, her show stunk. It struggled for three years, and then it was gone. I'm in my thirties, I don't ever even want to imagine her naked, and I think her stand-up doesn't make me angry, just bored. Wow. Another Jewish comedian making holocaust jokes. Not funny. Just unoriginal. She sucks. The end. http://www.deadline.com/2010/05/comedy-central-cancels-the-sarah-silverman-program/

    AICN - Home of antisemitic misogyny

    by HarrysNemesis

    Look it up dumbos that means you. Good lord I hate most of you AICN people so much. Nothing better in your lives to do than rag on others and throw your 2 'i hate it' cents in. 1. Sarah Silverman has more talent and humor in her clit than the rest of the AICN posters in this thread combined. 2. Sarah Silverman Show on comedy central was awesome -- not everyone's cup of tea comedy wise. But saying she sucks because you don't like her style of humor is like coming on here and calling some other good movie shit just because it's not your type of movie. 3. Agree networks are insane about this. Fan of her humor and show, but if she couldn't make it on comedy central with it how could she make it on network tv??? And most of her humor will have to be filtered for network TV -- I guarantee you even if what she comes up with is good some NBC network schlub is going to water it down so that it isn't. Not to mention, NBC has a history of putting up quirky comedies that are good, but are either not promoted or put up against highly rated shows so they get cancelled. So why bother? This is just doomed to be cancelled.

    What can she do on network TV?

    by Norm

    I don't understand the concept. What elements of her humor are going to make it past the network TV censors? She'll either be off the air in a month for offending someone, or it'll be tedious and unwatchable. NBC is not the right home for this.
