Here's another gr8 30 Rock joke I made up:

 

Someone says something like "every Sunday I jerk off to grandma porn before watching homeland" and some guy responds "ewww... You still watch homeland?"

maybe we should do something exactly like dr katz, because like there's this new comedy boom and lots of funny comics are constantly on podcasts, but on our show they could do some of their bits on TV. it would be better than cbb tv show.

whats a good sitcom idea?

setting is important but i was thinking about this yesterday.  is it best to come up with a sitcom in this order: premise -> characters -> setting

 

have good episode premises, come up with good characters to react to the situations they are in, and then come up with the setting.  of course, this order can be completely reversed and work just as well.  the setting will create characters which will then create premises.  i guess it is really a matter of figuring out the best way.  even throughout the history of sitcoms, it has been much of the same formula, so really it is characters that is most important

a show like delocated must have been created using premise -> character -> setting 

in fact, the opening sequence of season 1 & 2 kind of confirms this 

 

edit: i was wrong
