The weirdest thing about the news that Dane Cook is developing a sitcom for NBC is that Dane Cook wasn’t already developing a sitcom for NBC. No joke, how has that not been a thing already? The greatest show on TV, Dane Cook’s Tourgasm, was years ago! It’s definitely time. America is ready. Schwing! (Does Dane Cook have a catchphrase? I don’t know! Does he? Is his catchphrase just some kind of farting sound effect?) From Deadline:

Dane Cook is heading to NBC to headline his own network comedy series. Amid interest from multiple networks, the actor-comedian has signed a development deal with NBC for a half-hour project targeted for next fall. Cook will star in the comedy and produce through his SUperFInger Entertainment banner.

Obviously, this is just a development deal, so we are still a long way off from the male answer to Whitney (#1 show in America, such a good show, the best show?). But we’ll be one step closer when we figure out a name for this thing!

  • Whitney, I Mean Dane
  • That’s So Daneven
  • Dane Cook’s Sitcomgasm
  • Superfinger And Family
  • Meet The Cooks
  • One In The Pink Two In The Garage
  • Entourage

Oof. I now offer the Dane Cook sitcom a challenge: be funnier than this blog post. Please. You can maybe do it! This is a really terrible blog post! You don’t even have to be funny to be funnier than this. Make it work, Dane Cookers.

    Cookin’ with Führer — Dane Cook plays…

    Great Danes — Dane Cook is not involved. This is a show about dogs.

  21. His show should be called “Hey guys remember me I had one funny comedy album and then i basically copied every joke off of that format and they grew stale but that one album was still kind of funny oh well haha lol i have a show now with NBC ROFL!”

    Or just “Farts.”

  22. Somebody Pooped on the Coats!

    I don’t know, isn’t that the one joke that everyone used to quote like 7 years ago? Back when he was somewhat relevant and people actually remembered he existed?

  30. That’s So Danish!

  31. How I Cooked Your Danish

  32. I am surprised by this, actually. I was expecting him to have a sitcom deal with CBS.

  33. Just read about this over at the AV Club site and was horrified to learn that Dane Cook has already shot TWO failed pilots, the first of which was of course called ‘Cooked’. Greta job Dane! Third time’s the charm, I’m sure. Here are my brain thunderstorms:

    - It’s Dane, Baby!
    - Kiss the Cook!
    - F*** the Cook, Baby!
    - It’s Dane O’Clock, Baby!

    That’s all I got.

  48. “You’re a … CROOK, Captain HOOK!” – young George Bluth in the school play, except replace Hook with Dane Cook. The crook part is a reference to the comedian plagiarism. Rad reference.

  50. Harmful If Watched

    - I can see it now – Dane Cook is a single comic trying to make it living in the big city… believable as Zooey Deschanel playing a single nerdy girl that can’t get a guy.

  51. the Dane Train wreck

  58. I heard they were talking to Dat Phan and Margaret Cho to fill out the 2 hour Thursday block*

    *bad comedian joke, not racism against Asian people joke

  59. “Dane’s C*ck”

    You can do that on TV now, remember “Sh*t my dad days”? Super successful and funny.

  61. Who Made Me a Millionaire? – game show, not sitcom. everytime contestant answers right, *he* gets money.

    Gentleman B – plays simpleton-self who gets paid to show up when inane remarks are construed as hilarious (rather than deep thoughts a la Chance in Being There)
