TBS is also developing Cheeseheads (working title), which looks at the fans of Wisconsin’s Green Bay Packers. Billing promises that the show “will take viewers into the hilarious subculture through the eyes of a group of proud Wisconsinites as they navigate life in the only way they know how – loud, proud and with lots of beer.”
I’ve happened across a number of Bears fans who roll their eyes at this news. I say they’re sorely mistaken. I can’t wait for Cheeseheads!
You tell me there’s a show following around a bunch of drunken Packer fans every week, I say you’ve got the makings of comedy gold. Picture of bunch of cheeseheads in their hunting gear, pounding Milwaukee’s Best debating Favre vs Rodgers or Cheddar vs American. It’s like Jersey Shore for the drunken football crowd. I don’t know about you, but I’m setting my DVR immediately. In fact, if they don’t go through with it at TBS, I might take a crack at this show myself. How hard could it be to find a bunch of Packer fans anyway? Maybe they will come up with a shtick that will make “Da Bears” from SNL pale in comparison?
What do you think? Would you watch this show?
