- Who's in it: William Shatner is the big name here with a supporting cast that includes MADtv alums Will Sasso and Nicole Sullivan, and Ryan Devlin who most recently appeared in the finale of Grey's Anatomy.
- What it's about: Shatner plays Ed, a crotchety father and war veteran with a case of word vomit; Devlin is his son Henry, an out-of-work writer who is trying to get his life together.
- Why it caught my attention: It's based on the popular Twitter page that spawned a website and book. Plus, it has Shatner whose cult following knows no bounds, whether he's doing Priceline commercials or singing "Total Eclipse of the Heart." My only concerns: 1) the title. CBS has debated about what to call it, and looks like they're settling on the censored $#*! for now, which is kind of a mouthful. 2) Can you really create a show from Twitter?!
- Show most likely to: Have the best one-liners.
The jury is obviously still out until the show premieres on Thursday nights this Fall, but take a look at a clip when you read more.
