The answer to Nina Tassler’s prayers: Pauly Shore

 

Just last week  at the TCA press tour, CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler expressed her interest in reviving the variety genre on primetime TV. Little did she know someone in her own company was doing just that…but it’s probably not quite what she had it in mind.

CBS corporate sibling Showtime just bowed “Pauly Shore’s Vegas Is My Oyster,” which as you will see in the truly NSFW trailer above, bills itself as a contemporary take on this ancient genre. I’d suggest showing an edited version on CBS during these dog days of summer, but “Oyster” would probably be cut down from 90 minutes to about 9 seconds once the broadcaster’s standards and practices division got done with it.

With profanity and porn stars aplenty, “Oyster” will air on Showtime throughout August. Make sure to send your petition to have Shore take his show to CBS c/o Nina Tassler, who will no doubt love the idea.
