The Lastest Terrible Idea From Comedy Central

Comedy Central, which is famous for putting out some of the worst programming in television history including Man Bites Dog, Krod Mandoon, Little Bush, and Drawn Together. It is also well known for producing some of the most critically acclaimed but still terrible programs such as The Daily Show. Recently, however, they are being remembered for not having the stones to put up a four-second image of the Islamic prophet Mohammed, possibly in fear of violence. However, if you watch The Daily Show or the Colbert Report you would get the creeping feeling that the only religious fundamentalists that could threaten the United States are those that are Christian. If such dogma is correct, Comedy Central better be prepared for people to throw holy water or Bibles or something.

Introducing the Jesus Christ Show!

As part of the network's upfront presentation to advertisers, the network is set to announce "JC," a half-hour show about Christ wanting to escape the shadow of his "powerful but apathetic father" and live a regular life in New York City.

In the show, God is preoccupied with playing video games while Christ, "the ultimate fish out of water," tries to adjust to life in the big city.

"In general, comedy in purist form always makes some people uncomfortable," said Comedy Central's head of original programming Kent Alterman.

He's right-- show let's let South Park do satire and Comedy Central do sucking like it's so great at.
