The Idiot Box is back!

By 2010/11/25December 27th, 2018The Idiot Box

The Idiot Box relaunch is off and running. Original Idiots, Tom Stern, Tim Burns and myself, are now writing the pilot script for MTV’s broadband division. Jump-starting this on the net will give us the freedom to throw all the dirty spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks. Very exciting. And yes, The Gimp will fly again! Watch this space for developments… -AW

    That is perhaps the best news ever! Congrats guys – hopefully MTV will the finally get off their butts and put out the DVDs… like how MTV is putting this on the internet- the network has no room between Jersey Shore and Sweet 16 reruns…but that’s all good material for you guys so ENJOY!
