Mo: I have some bad news: Your favorite TV show has been cancelled.
Amy: I’m not surprised. Ratings plummeted last season, so the writing was on the wall.
Mo: Also on the chopping block is your favorite reality show: American Idiots.
Amy: Oh no, not American Idiots, too! I thought it was gaining ground in the ratings after a slow start.
Mo: Unfortunately, it stayed a cult favorite and never garnered a large enough viewership to be renewed.
Amy: I’ll have nothing to watch next season.
Mo: You can watch some of my shows. All of my favorites are being renewed, with one taking a short hiatus.
Amy: A short hiatus? We all know what that means.
Mo: What are you implying?
Amy: The network will put in a mid-season replacement, and if it does well, you’ll never see your show again.
Mo: That’s not true. You’re just saying that because your shows got the ax.
Amy: No, I’m not. That show is on its last legs. Mark my words.
Mo: Well, even if it’s true, I still have something to watch, for now.
Amy: What are you watching right now?
Mo: A show called Podsters. It’s a reality show where a bunch of podcasters live in a house together and are watched 24 hours a day.
Amy: I’ve never heard of anything so inane. Who cares about the lives of podcasters? They must be the most boring people in the world.
Mo: You might have a point there.
