An Idea Stolen Nearly Two Decades Late

On the morning death-commute to another monday at work I heard an advertisement. Not surprising. For a TV show. Again, not surprising. But for a TV show that I’d heard pitched in the mid-90s by Peter Sarrett. That was new. (OK, it wasn’t a pitch so much as Peter musing that he thought it would make a great TV show, an idea I agreed with. I mean, who would pitch a TV show to a guy without money? Not someone as clever as Peter, that’s who).  It was for Celebrity Name Game which sounded for all the world like Celebrities. (Reading the Wikipedia page reveals that differences). And as a bonus, it’s by Craig Ferguson.

So, has anyone seen it?

  1. My DVR finally picked up an episode. It’s ok, about as many laughs as a single round of Celebrities. Craig doesn’t have as many opportunities to go off as his talk show/standup.
