First: 30 Rock. Much like Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, it's loosely based around the people that write and produce Saturday Night Live. Unlike Studio 60, it's actually funny, which is something that you would expect out of a show with the aforementioned content.
It reminds me of Arrested Development in some ways - reasonably strong ensemble cast, none of the characters are particularly likable as people, but they're all so clearly oblivious that you like them anyway. Unfortunately, it's not quite as funny as R-Dev... except for the moments when Alec Baldwin walks on-screen, at which point I promptly crap my pants with laughter.
I'd put up a clip, but this show is not popular enough to have any good YouTube clips.
Second: Violent Acres. I came across this blog while going through AKA's del.icio.us bookmarks and have been steadily growing more interested with each post. It's sort of what I would imagine Tucker Max to be like if he was a 30-something woman with a sense of responsibility, and a lack of alcohol-induced retardation. This person, who keeps enough to herself that she is speculated to be a dude, basically slams on assholes and self-indulgent women.
Here are some hilarious posts:
- On women gaining weight during pregnancy
- On Tucker Max
- On people being assholes to wait staff
- On fighting (the post from AKA)
Third: Thomas. Happy Birthday, douche!
