So, do you agree? Too many on network TV (assuming you still watch network TV)?

Two and a Half Men co-creator Lee Aronsohn insists that Ashton Kutcher wants to return to the hit TV sitcom for a 10th season.
Aronsohn isn’t a fan of the current crop of female-centered comedies such as Whitney and 2 Broke Girls.

“Enough, ladies. I get it. You have periods,” he said.

Aronsohn applauded women like Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Handler and Tina Fey securing a voice to discuss formerly taboo subjects on TV.

“But we’re approaching peak vagina on television, the point of labia saturation,” he said.

    Vulvar is my favorite word.

    Only six letters, yet it conveys so much.

  4. memesis says:

    Have not watched or owned a tv in 20 years and im 35. I have never liked tv. What a waste of time.

  5. shooff says:

    I have a ton of nice TV’s

    30 Rock is funny, but I never saw it in Prime Time, not once.

    NetFlix is the future.

    Saturate yourself with whatever you want.

    So Say We All.

    Vagina is the flavor of the month.

    I’ve been pretty grossed out for a while now.

  8. Howard Sprague says:

    Most of today’s comedy writers are hypersexual. The males have erections lasting more than 4 hours (and should seek immediate medical attention). The female writers see the subject matter as liberating and “edgy”, while the good old boy executives are just happy to have “business reasons” to talk naughty to the cast members. LOL.

    Although Hollywood has always been figuratively close to Sodom and Gomorrah, not once did Andy ever talk to Barney about Helen Crump’s vajayjay. Things have changed.

  9. Scott K says:

    If he’s applauding Whitney Cummings and Chelsea Handler, I don’t agree with him on much of anything.

    • GregAllen says:

      “Whitney” is passable, some of the time.

      For a chick-humor show, I’ll take “New Girl”.

      For genuinely funny women, I’ll take Kristin Wig or Jane Lynch.

      The female principals on “Community” and “Modern Family.”

  10. Glenn E. says:

    I watch the “Big Bang Theory” sitcom, because it’s the only one with even a hint of intelligent dialog. And still it’s way too much about having sex, way too often. These nerds are getting some, far more often than the average nerd in real life ever does. I’ve also been watching “New Girl”, just because I’m a fan of Zooey Deschanel, from her movie days. But it’s real chore to get thru all the sexual dialog and setups, just to make sense of the comedy. And I’m thinking it won’t last long.

    And that’s all the primetime comedies I care to watch. Period. Nothing else works for me. And most of the dramas have been on for way too long. I just don’t care about them anymore. I can’t understand how most of them manage to keep going. They can only investigate a crime, or autopsy a corpse, so many ways, without repeating themselves. Or change what they do, to a whole different deal. That they destroy their original series premise. And you know “Bones” has been on too long, when they play the screaming pregnancy delivery card.

    So I’ve been checking out new drama series, that aren’t just clones of the others. And if they last more than two seasons. That probably means the Tv execs understand them enough to approve them. Which means they are, or have become, just as bad as everything else. Time to move on. Most of what I loved to watch on Tv, never lasted more than a single season. Either the Tv execs didn’t get it, or couldn’t change it into something they could. And then claimed it cost too much, so they canceled it. Which explains why “Seinfeld” lasted so long. And is still in reruns. It’s always been a show about nothing. Which is what Tv execs understand the most.

    The real reason there is so much to do about sex on Tv is simple. They get stomped on, if they made jokes about religion, politics, race, homosexuality, obesity, food, war, law, ecology, economics, medicine, wildlife, or pets. Only sex seems to be the safe ground left for comedy anymore. Nobody sues or pickets the network for making too many vagina and penis references. Perhaps they should. But if anyone is objecting. They’re being marginalized, ignored, or both.

    Probably because there’s nowhere else for comedy to go, but to the land of sex jokes. And then, only non-gay sex jokes. Because the gays now, don’t like being the butt of any jokes. And they’ll raise a fuss about it, if they’re not happy with how their lifestyle is being portrayed. They’ll sic Ellen or Oprah, on the networks. Apparently gays are the new minority race. Even though they seem to think everyone is gay, but is in denial about it. So don’t dare make jokes about them, anymore. That’s racist! Or ethinist! Or sexist! Whateverist.

    You can’t even make jokes about terrorists or foreign enemies. Because much of the US Tv shows end up being marketed overseas. They can’t afford to offend anybody, anywhere, for doing or plotting anything! So it’s sex jokes, or nothing!! That’s what Tv has become. Something debase to the point that offends the smallest percentage of viewers, worldwide. And the only ones that would be very offended by so much reference to sex. Don’t watch any Tv, as a rule. So devote Quakers, Muslims, etc, don’t count. Make all the sex jokes you want.

    We need better story-telling variety on TV. Comedies are fine but we need other stuff – preferably stories where the modes of transportation say “NCC” painted on the top.

  12. Cursor_ says:

    If you watch network TV you deserve any crap you get.


  13. NewfornatSux says:

    The guy who wrote Frasier and Cheers has his own blog. Ken Levine is not a fan of Chelsea or Whitney.

  14. msbpodcast says:

    assuming you still watch network TV

    I don’t.

  15. farbauti says:

    Nickelodeon, my sanctuary.

  16. TooManyPuppies says:

    BS! I haven’t seen any vagina on network TV.

  17. jpfitz says:

    I don’t watch anything on cbs, nbc, abc, or fox except for the Sunday night animations. The Walking Dead and Justified are watched by the wife and I. Oh, and Comedy Centrals Jon and Colbert are hilarious. I don’t hear much about vagina on the DVR, maybe it’s the programs. Family Guy is raunchy, but what do you expect from FOX on Sunday night with their family animations. I’m glad I have no little kiddies in the house.

    Aronsohn sounds like a dirtbag, closeted homosexual.

    • Cursor_ says:

      if it isn’t on the net I don’t see it.

      I never even saw one episode of the office and I am not sad about that at all.


  18. farmits says:

    Hmmm, TV networks still exist?
    I wouldn’t know as I’ve been off network for a long time now.

  19. t0llyb0ng says:

    Her butt was so exquisite
    I had to kneel & kiss it

  20. JimD, Boston, MA says:

    Hey, it’s called “Broad”cast Television, isn’t it ??? They have been making the FINEST SHOWS FOR WOMEN FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS !!!

  21. GregAllen says:

    I’d take this guy seriously if his show didn’t absolutely suck.
