Richard's Poor Almanac by Richard Thompson for October 13, 2014
new tv shows that already got cancelled hughie, dewey & lulu hughie: yo! lulu: yoo hoo! dewey's a white guy without a clue! his pals hughie, the funky black man, & lulu, the otrageous gay man, exist only to dispense funky & outrageous wisecracks that help dewey get a life! creamed in the ratings, even by "poodle hijinx" on animal planet. the spittles dad's a cretin, mom's a harridan, sis is a dingbat & junior eats dirt with a shovel! unfortunately, the studio audience stormed the set & wiped the whole sordid busi-ness off the face of the earth. flapjack please wait to be seated they're an edgy new breed - young, hip, impatient with the rules & always way out of line! intense drama, set in a pancake restaurant, failed to de-liver the coveted 18-35 demographic. the abyss it's a new concept in reality television - a show that, when you stare at it, stares back at you! but it was on against "jag" and nobody watched it.
