You know you're out of ideas when...

You make a show around animated body parts. Specifically, just one body part. See, I could see a show about a bunch of parts, like Slim Goodbody or something... But coming soon to an empty brain near you are TWO shows on TWO different networks that center around a body part (although one is plural by default). Funnier still (or unfunny, as I'm sure we'll find out), they are predictably found below the belt.

Assy McGee hits Adult Swim soonish. Can you guess the body part? Yeah, an ass acting like an out-of-control cop. Or something. Who cares? It's a butt shooting a gun. Jeez.

Next up, "Baxter & McGuire" is an online show for Comedy Central featuring a pair of testicles. What's with the Scottish surnames anyway? Oh well, this is from the creator of "The King of Queens." That was a decent show, so maybe it's funny.

It should be funny that there are these two shows on in some regard at the same point in history. Last time I drew naughty bits and wrote comedy sketches for them I was in middle school. I guess that market research would come in handy now, huh?
