Alex Van Pelt thinks that hot women get ahead faster at ESPN, which I'm sure makes him very popular in the lunchroom, and I previously thought that he was talking about Erin Andrews, but then I realized that there are other hot women at ESPN who get to be on shows with Colin Cowherd, which could be seen as "getting ahead," depending on your outlook:
Colin Cowherd, by the way, is going to be getting a TV show (or so the rumors have it), and with the cancellation of Two and A Half Men... and suddenly this is a TV/pop culture blog? ... will likely be going ahead with those plans faster, given that his producer is also the producer on Two And A Half Men, but, as with the prospect of working with Cowherd on a sports talk show, whether this is something to be happy about... or grimly sour about... remains to be seen, as Deadspin reports that they have the script for the pilot and it's awful.
I agree; it does seem pretty terrible. And totally not autobiographical, judging by the name and description of the main character:
Wow! No wonder Michelle Beadle wants to work with him!
If I seem jealous, it's because I am: It seems a bit unfair to me that Colin Cowherd gets to spend his day talking about sports, for pay, and gets his sitcom produced, while I spend my day talking about sports without pay, and my own sitcom pilot, For Richer... a hilarious series about a family that wins the lottery but has to hide it from their relatives, and so they pretend to be the servants at the mansion they move into, while the servants pretend to be their bosses... languishes without even a crummy basic cable offer.
