On a scale of 1 to 10: Samantha Bee's and Jason Jones' sitcom

Posted on


Beejonesdailyshow_lAccording to Variety, Daily Show correspondents (and spouses) Samantha Bee and Jason Jones are writing a pilot script for CBS: “The couple would also star in the as-yet-untitled comedy, which will revolve around the behind-the-scenes world of a celebrity chef (played by Jones) and the two women who run his cooking empire (one of whom will be played by Bee).”

On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely is it that this show will make it to air? I’m feeling a 4. Not because I don’t like Bee and Jones and wish them post-Daily Show success.* But because I’m not feeling a cooking comedy. I hope they surprise me.

* I’m still pulling for you, Beth Littleford.
