Set a "Lunch Tables" Date with Jimmy
If you'd like to see an actual TV program with my writing credit attached to it, the moment you've been waiting for is fast approaching.
My episode of Out of Jimmy's Head, "Lunch Tables," filmed just about a year ago, to the month, is slated to air at last, this Thursday, May 29 at 7:30. This is on Cartoon Network, of course.
- It should air at this time, but it is not unprecedented for Cartoon Network to air a different episode or a different show than scheduled at the last minute.
- Apologies in advance for the grating, embarrassing laugh track. None of us writers wanted it or expected it. It was forced upon the show the way a creepy uncle forces himself on a helpless step-niece, seven episodes into a previously laugh-track-free run. Try to tune it out and you might notice some of the jokes would actually be good if it weren't for the phoniest laughs you ever heard turning the show into a parody of a bad sitcom.
- I have not seen the finished episode myself and have no idea how it turned out. If it is bad, I had nothing to do with it.
