Salvador took his dog, a very happy little spaniel, to the vet. “Dr. White,” he said sadly, “I’m sorry to do this, but I need to have you cut off my dog’s tail.”
Shocked, Dr. White asked, “Salvador, why would you want me to do such a terrible thing to your sweet little dog?”
“Because,” said Salvador, “my mother-in-law is coming to town tomorrow, and I don’t want anything to make her think she’s welcome.”

WRITER’S REVENGE

As a writer on Cybill, Chuck Lorre had numerous run-ins with star Cybill Shepherd, who often complained about her lines. Later, while serving as a producer on Roseanne, Lorre clashed with Roseanne Barr over the direction of the show. Lorre went on to create and produce Two and a Half Men, and for a promotional stunt in 2008 the crime-drama CSI and the sitcom Two and a Half Men traded writers. In Lorre’s CSI episode, the murder victim is a thinly veiled amalgam of Shepherd and Barr. Before the fictional TV star (played by Katey Sagal) was killed, she yelled at her writer, “Don’t argue with me. Just make me funny. And lovable!” Later, her dead body was discovered with a rubber chicken shoved down her throat. Detective Grissom (William Petersen) deadpanned, “Dying is easy; comedy is hard.”

“Believe It or Not,” from Greatest American Hero

In the late 1970s and early ’80s, Joey Scarbury was a session singer and songwriter for hire. Then TV composer Mike Post gave him his big break, selecting him to sing the theme song for a new show about a bumbling superhero called Greatest American Hero. The song, whose official title is “Theme from Greatest American Hero (Believe It or Not),” went to #2 in 1981. The show ran for three seasons. Scarbury continued to write songs for radio and TV and became a minor country music star in the 1990s, but he never had another pop hit.

All those flags are now plain white. The radiation from the sun has taken the color from them. Just call me Cliff Claven.

Two lawyers were standing in the courthouse parking lot one day. “Hey,” asked one, “why did you paint one side of your car yellow and the other side blue?”
“Well,” the other lawyer responded, “I get into frequent car accidents, and you should see how all the witnesses contradict each other!”

SAVE OUR SHOW!

My Name Is Earl was the most popular new sitcom of the 2005–06 season and finished the year at #40 in the ratings. The original premise: Earl (Jason Lee) was a redneck petty thief who won the lottery and tried to turn his life around by righting every wrong he’d ever committed. But the show took a lot of weird turns (example: Earl spent half of season three in a coma with an imaginary 1950s sitcom playing in his brain) and lost nearly half its viewers, dropping to #85 in the fourth season. Creator Greg Garcia knew the show was slipping and asked NBC what their plans were so he could produce either a wrap-up final episode or an end-of-season cliffhanger in which Earl finds out he may be the father of his ex-wife’s child. NBC told him to go with the cliffhanger. After it aired, the network canceled the show. (And Earl never found out if he was a dad.)

A hypochondriac went to the doctor because he was convinced he had a very rare disease. “But what makes you think you have it?” the doctor asked. “With this disease there is no pain of any kind.”
“Oh, no!” the patient worried. “Those are my symptoms exactly!

Ugly Betty (2006–10)

This show debuted a few months after the premiere of the hit movie adaptation of Lauren Weisberger’s novel The Devil Wears Prada, in which a plain young woman is hired as an assistant at a fashion magazine. Betty was partially based on the book version of Prada, but series developers Silvio Horta and Salma Hayek modeled the show more closely on a 1999–2001 Colombian soap opera called Yo Soy Betty, La Fea (“I Am Betty, the Ugly One”). ABC’s Ugly Betty was one of 18 international versions of the Colombian show.

A man went to the DMV to get his driver’s license renewed. It was very crowded, and the line inched along slowly for almost an hour. Finally the man got to the clerk, who looked at the man’s form and then snapped his picture. The man inspected his photo for a moment and then complained to the clerk, “I was standing in line for so long that I look grouchy in this picture.”
“That’s okay,” answered the clerk. “That’s how you’re going to look if the cops pull you over, anyway.”

THIS DAY IN TV

On July 1, 1941, the Federal Communications Commission gave the legal approval to two TV stations to broadcast TV signals. Both were New York–based TV affiliates of radio networks: CBS’s WCBW and NBC’s WNBT. They were the first ever TV stations. WNBT aired a baseball game that day, which included another first: the first TV commercial. It was for Bulova watches. Cost of the ad time: $4.
