a hilarious tv show about tv shows
24 August 2001 | by aarettSee all my reviews

this show, which ran for a couple of seasons on nickelodeon, on saturday nights, deserves to be seen again.. i think the rights to the show are all tied up somewhere, otherwise it would be perfect programming for comedy central.. basically the show was a series of reviews of non-existant t.v. shows, which spoofed some of the more popular t.v. shows of the time. for example, one show they reviewed was, "gigantic herman's playground." in this spoof of pee wee's playhouse, when you hear "the annoying repeated word" you are supposed to "scream until you spit up blood." Actually in this episode, focusing on children's programming, there is a show reviewed, "beverly hills teenage ponies" which bears a striking resemblance to today's south park.. the real highlight of the show were the interviews conducted by McGrath's character, Nat Caulfield, at Universal Studios. This show starred a number of McGrath's fellow groundlings. totally hilarious and original.. my favorite tv show ever
