Woman Allowed to Write Television Scripts

In a brave experiment, Molly McAleer, a biological woman who lives in Los Angeles, has been hired by showrunner Michael Patrick King for CBS' "Two Broke Girls," which was picked up by the network in mid-May, and will allegedly air between "How I Met Your Mother" and "Two and a Half Men."

The repercussions of having a woman writing TV are unknown but we expect the very worst.

Oh! This is happy news indeed. I haven't been so excited about a TV hire since Rachel Sweet got picked to write a Dharma and Greg.

Repercussions? Expect a ripping bedbug script.

Maybe Roseanne Barr with send a gift basket of firearms and tranquilizers.*

*I mean this in the nicest, most necessary way.

But what will this mean for my favorite ladyblog HelloGiggles?

Studios know dames only produce pablum about poor body image/cellulite/middleschmertz/OMG why are guys like that/shoe shopping so I am eagerly awaiting the pilot.

She knows that the writer is the one who works off-screen, right?

But can she pee in a jar?

@anonymass It's "Whore Sea"

@anonymass
More important than the actual sounds are the tonalities. You have to really use your upper register.

@anonymass It's pronounced 80's teen actor lost boy who OD'd + late 70's early 80's port star.

@anonymass I learned how to pronounce Choire's name years ago when I started reading his stuff on Gawker, and I'm still waiting for an opportunity to do so.

Half of the Community writing staff last year was female and I consider that one of, if not the, funniest thing on television. I believe the repercussions known and hysterical.

Carl Hess@twitter (#11,024)

@Neopythia Yes, but we don't know the repercussions of a woman writing a CBS show. Can she pander hard enough? Concerned parties want to know.
