I liked working with Wade. I liked this show a lot. i was really upset when i first found out. Aaron Moles posted a photo of the results on instagram and i commented “Suck my dick, Aaron Moles” I’m sorry, Aaron. I didnt mean it. I was very drunk. If you didnt vote for business, then you can suck my dick. Because I think Business was funny and good enough to get voted back.
I’m not upset anymore. The Channel 101 audience is weird sometimes. And the shows that did get voted back were good. And I dont like producing shows. Im bad at it.
Everyone who helped out, thank you. I love you. Youre all really funny and talented and I’m sorry channel 101 hates us.
I was talking to Sam Brown, the host of the party in this video, about how much I liked The Business. I think I figured out why it tickles me so much.
There are these people in America who totally miss the point of villains in movies. I’ve worked with them at a variety of office jobs. They love Gordon Gekko. They think The Boiler Room is cool because those guys screw a bunch people out of money. They wish they were on Entourage high five-ing Drama. These are the people with Scarface posters over their couches.
This show has always felt like “What if Gordon Gekko was just a dummy who made jerk off jokes?” It exposes how fucking shitty people are who are attracted to those characters.
Take away Vincent Chase’s cars. Strip Gordon Gekko of his Armani suits. It leaves you with a bunch of awful characters that certain types of people love which makes me feel like those people are also awful.
Sad to see the show go.
I’m relieved that it’s over but pissed about how it ended. I know when I make a bad show. I’m hyper aware of it. Most of my shows are bad shows. Even the ones that get voted back. This was not a bad show. The audience was a fucking corpse on Saturday. I don’t know who these people are anymore, but I know they laugh about as much as a dead fish.
The guy next to me dropped my ballot on the floor, when I asked him if he’d seen it he said, “I don’t know, man.” In that really condescending dismissive way the jocks in high school use to intonate. So fuck him and fuck all the rest of them too. If those are the people voting then thank God they didn’t vote for my show. A very capable show with no resemblance whatsoever to Family Guy.
Good. Now I win back my weekends. I don’t have to suffer through the pathetic submissions at the panel meeting. I don’t have to work hard so that people who don’t can show up and decide they’d rather see CG fucking dinosaurs. (No offense, Ryan. But come on. CG fucking dinosaurs.) Channel101 has always been a mimic of Hollywood and I can’t think of a funnier way to get cancelled then by CG fucking dinosaurs.
So my dream of once again being Channy relevant has been shattered by a group of… I mean I’m pretty sure I saw an Ed Hardy shirt in the audience. That’s not EVEN A THING ANYMORE.
I’m still very confused. But at least now I have the guise of frustration to validate my laziness. I guess now Kelsy and I just have to sell the show, get it on TV, stick it up the audience’s ass and say — what’s that one really inspirational Mike Tyson quote? Oh right: “I’m gonna fuck you until you love me.”
