Default TV Show Combos

My old friend and colleague Thom died the other week. He was one of the funniest guys I ever knew, with a laugh that came from his toes. He was a wonderful guy, a joy to be around, and a proud member of the acclaimed Washington Gay Men's Chorus--which sang beautifully and 70-strong at his memorial service.

Thom had a bit of the Paul Lynde in him, and he'd sometimes present a silly premise and invite everyone to contribute examples. My favorite was his declaration that with so many cable channels there are just too many TV shows. We need to cut back, he said, and the easiest way to do that is to combine as many of them as possible. So the game is to pair up TV shows that seem to have something in common. But of course the combination must be funny, and in honor of Thom, just a little catty. His favorite example was to combine Dancing With the Stars with the Westminster Dog Show.

My contribution: 60 Minutes and Antiques Road Show.

What's yours?

I'll try to come up with something (I still almost fall out of my chair listening to tapes of the show with Paul Lynde) if I can.

But for not I'll only say your combination ranks right up there with Thom's!
