Following the glowing critical success of 2 Broke Girls and Whitney, the geniuses at NBC have decided to balance out all that estrogen with some good ol’ fashioned bro humor. And what better person to deliver said bro humor than the guy whose comedy album every frat pledge on your hall freshman year played at max volume, over and over, while laughing so hard he spit Natty Ice everywhere?
That’s right, I’m talking about the razor sharp comedic mind of Dane Cook. I guess they were so impressed with his tour de force performances in Good Luck Chuck and My Best Friend’s Girl that they had no choice but to give him his own sitcom post haste, before AMC snapped him up to play an existentially conflicted drug kingpin on Breaking Bad.
According to TVline, Cook has signed “an overall talent deal with NBC with an eye towards developing a half-hour sitcom for the 2012-13 TV season.” I know, I know, you want your Dane Cook sitcom now. In the meantime, you will just have to continue to amuse yourself with Cook’s hilarious and cerebral stand-up comedy.
