Alas, poor Andy


Andy Richter's new show Andy Barker, P.I., created by Conan O'Brien, featuring the adventures of an accountant/private detective, was canceled last week. From pilot episode to cancellation, the show lasted for 7 minutes and 43 seconds, a new record for shows I like, breaking the old record of 10:21 held by Andy Richter Controls the Universe.

Are you happy, America? You've hurt Andy again, and you've hurt me again. Enjoy your reality television and multiple-choice quiz shows. Come up with anything new and funny, and the viewing public will take a fat dump on it.

If anybody needs me, I'll be watching DVDs of good TV shows.

I would just like to point out that since Rebecca hardly ever watches TV then it was, in fact, her.

The General Public has yet to fully embrace Andy's genius. Andy Richter Controls The Universe was freaking hysterical. And I loyally watched all of Andy Barker PI - I enjoyed it too.

I pray to god that he someday gets a sitcom that takes off, because he deserves it.

Nick's right. Damn you Rebecca, and your insistence on non-TV entertainment!

He even tried doing a crappy sitcom about quintuplets. America just isn't ready for him.

I just hope Conan stays big long enough to keep putting Andy vehicles on TV.
