5 Better Premises for Sarah Silverman’s New NBC Sitcom

Hey, Sarah Silverman got her pilot picked-up! That’s exciting news to me, a huge Sarah Silverman Program fan, although the premise sounds pretty conventional: she’ll star as a woman who’s newly single after having spent most of her adult life in a relationship. Boo-ring! (Imagine my voice dropping two octaves while saying that. Actually, first imagine my voice, then lower it two octaves. Great, now we’re both in prison.) Because I care, here are five suggested premises for Sarah’s new show:

1. Sarah Silverman stars as a woman who’s newly single after having spent most of her life in a relationship, and also every time she makes a Jewish joke one of her body parts falls off.

2. Sarah Silverman stars as Hasid a who’s newly single after having spent most of her life in a relationship. Born and raised in Brooklyn, she’s tasked with trying to navigate the crazy world of dating in New York. It’s like Sex and the City, except without sex. Better fashion, though.

3. Sarah Silverman stars as a nun who’s newly single after having spent most of her life in a spiritual lesbian relationship with another nun. Still no sex. This is going poorly.

4. Sarah Silverman stars as a stripper! Now we’re talking. Sarah Silverman stars as a woman who’s stripping to pay her way through med school, and in the pilot she saves the life of a customer who suffered a heart attack after becoming too aroused during a lap dance. Ashton Kutcher plays the heart attack.

5. Sarah Silverman stars as Chelsea Handler.
