I have been saying this FOREVER. The Onion is FINALLY getting it’s very own half hour TV show on Comedy Central, in a new deal reported by THR. Sadly, no credit is being given to me, the person who has been saying this for years, but hey, whatever, as long as it’s happening.
I’ve long believed The Onion would be a perfect companion piece to Stewart and Colbert as it’s PURE satire, and would be one level past Colbert on that spectrum of news reporting with seemingly legitimate news reporters, graphics and sets, all reporting on purely fictional news.
Wait, what’s that? The series is to be based soley on the Onion Sports Network and will only cover sports?
WHAT THE **** GUYS, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
