Things That Make Me Die Inside (Vol. 4)

144023__shatner_lTypically, TTMMDI is Slezak’s bit, but I had to butt in. I’ve had it with the promos for William Shatner’s new series Show Me the Money (pictured), particularly the insistence on incorporating the past tense of [taking a crap] into every sentence. Not to mention plastering words beginning with "shat-" onscreen. This is so not an acceptable prefix.

"If you think you know fun, thrilling, and unpredictable a game show can be, then you don’t know shat!… It’s shat-tastic! It’s shat-stounding! It’s the most shat-rageous game show ever!" (Cut to Shat himself, exclaiming "It’s a fiesta!")

Can we NOT?

ABC, stop trying to make "shat" happen. It’s not going to happen.

    I thought it was great when William Shatner resurrected himself in “Miss Congeniality.” I even thought he was funny for a while on “Boston Legal,” and it was great he won an Emmy. But now, I’m a little over-shat, I guess. It never ceases to amaze me how ABC particularly is willing to overexpose its “stars” (Regis Philbin, anyone?) by putting them on more than one show at a time.

    Does ABC not know the meaning of the word ‘shat’ or do they just not care?

    Oooh, Annie………I think I just Shat myself laughing!

    On the other hand, this does seem to be a case of truth in advertising, as I suspect this show really is “shat-tastic” in the truest sense of the (non)word.

  • marykate

    The title of this show is called “Show Me The Money”
    How irrelevant for 2006.

  • Slammy

    Shatner = the point where irony became played out.

    Annie! You stole my line! Well, Regina’s line, but whatever. Shat just makes me think of something grotesque, so I’ll stop now.

    How funny, I hadn’t thought about the “prefix!” I was too mesmerized by the ham-handed attempts to one-up Deal or No Deal. Shatner amuses me, but these promos smack way too hard of some ad man thinking that “Don’t Hassle the Hoff!” was brilliant.

    I wonder how many people are aware that “shat” is the past tense of a naughty word. LOL It’s definitely not going to happen, anyway.

    Remember when Millionaire hit big. ABC ran it fifty times a week and the other networks came up with their own game shows. How did that turn out?

    “Things that make me die inside” is the funniest popwatch title I’ve seen in a while. It’s even better when they’re given volumes.

    To add to this title, we should have a “Dead Inside” Celebrity of the week. You know what I mean, there are many people who look soul-less. First and foremost, Cal Ripkin Jr’s daughter from those commercials a few years back. That girl is ABSOLUTELY dead inside. Her blank stare with Cal’s eyes, and her delivery of dialogue to her dad seriously made me feel like she was in cahoots with El Diablo. Who else do you think is dead inside?
