CBS greenlights ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ sitcom because nothing is sacred

Oct 23, 2012

Hey fans-of-one-of-the-most-seminal-bands-history! CBS just shit all over the bed and they’re going to make you, the viewing public, sleep in it because some asshat with no sense of decorum just greenlit “Smells Like Teen Spirit” – a sitcom about ’90s parents and start-up culture, steeped in Nirvana references. The sitcom is being penned by “The Big Bang Theory” scribe Dave Geotsch – a man who clearly doesn’t give a shit about anything you love given his near-rape of nerd culture. He now has his eyes set on the entire ’90s.

Didn’t anybody learn the lesson of The Beatles “Revolution #9″ failed sitcom or the AC/DC reality show “(Who’s Got The Biggest) Balls Of Them All”? Apparently not:

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the sitcom tells the story of a teenager who “forgoes Harvard and instead opts to launch a multibillion-dollar Internet company from his garage with the assistance of his sister, best friend and his 1990s indie-rock parents”.

Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain’s widow, the completely heinous Courtney Love, has not said whether she OK’d the decision to use the band’s signature song as the name of what will undoubtedly a very bad sitcom. While it is debatable as to how much of the band’s catalog she owns given her now famous ability to throw away money and sign away Cobain’s legacy whenever she needs a cash injection, she may be the one responsible for allowing such a ridiculous show to be greenlit
