Obama Pilot A One Off

The Barack Obama show aired tonight on three channels. CBS, NBC and FOX all carried the half hour sitcom. It focused on people who are sad because things suck. It was not funny and a bit preachy, like My Name is Earl. According to inside sources, none of the networks will pick up the show.

CBS executives said, "We don't see where it goes from here, to be honest."

NBC executives said, "We have too many hits with Knight Rider and My Own Worst Enemy and Kath and Kim. The Obama Show just wouldn't fit."

Fox executives said, "We don't do black anymore."

So, there you have it. Maybe he can come back with a dramedy on a cable channel.
