Everyone’s favorite controversial comedienne, Sarah Silverman, is coming back to TV- this time on NBC. Jesus IS Magic! I’m not sure what material she is going to be limited to on network television though…sad face. Even though I wasn’t the biggest fan of “The Sarah Silverman Program” (Comedy Central) I will forever be in awe of her quick wit, superior sarcasm skills and unflinching ability to say what people think about but are too scared to say because of the potential backlash.
“NBC is the hunt for a new female-driven Seinfeld-like comedy, enlisting comedians Whitney Cummings and Chelsea Handler for projects, and now Silverman.”
omg I love Sarah. you just made my day with this post. this is weird, though, because in her book, “The Bedwetter,” she talks a lot about how she was banned from NBC (the WHOLE network) because of her infamous “racist” Chinese joke, in which the Chinese media advocacy group misunderstood the joke completely and forced NBC into this decision. oh well! maybe that group lost some powerful political talking head and they don’t give a f*ck about Silverman anymore…
I didn’t read the book but another “Silver-fan” (just made that up I think) told me about that situation. I was thinking that NBC is just gonna hope “those people” don’t watch that show and it slips under the radar. Either way, I’m geeked up!
