DURST: TV Offerings

The networks released next season's schedules and they have cleverly put themselves in danger of neither breaking new ground or setting the bar too high. Ooh, those sly ones. One will never be able to accuse them of having failed to fulfill high expectations. Next year we can expect to see our screens littered with what a gang of GED dropouts known as focus groups have identified as hot: widowers, preachers, aliens and odd couples. Waiting in the wings are some inevitable mid season replacements courtesy of the Will Durst School Of Advanced Prime Time Televsion. THOSE WACKY NEIGHBORS NEXT DOOR: wackiness ensues weekly when a Winnebago full of aliens travel through the midwest learning about what it means to be human taking the time to teach a few lessons of their own. THE RAPPING BENEDICTINE MONKS OF SANTO DOMINGO DE SILOS: a busload of inner city orphan youth get stranded at a Benedictine Monastary during a Gregorian Chant Festival and teach as dope as they get taught. ODD FRIENDS: six good looking aliens sit around, drink coffee and have intrapersonal relationship problems. Refreshingly, no lessons are either learned or taught. STEINMAN: a rabbi spends his time eating in a bad coffee shop and searching for a decent Manhattan apartment with his three wacky friends, one an alien, FATHERS ZIPH & ZORG: an alien odd couple assume the identity of widowed reverends and wreak havoc on a small midwestern parish, as they learn about us but still find time to teach as well. Will Durst will appear frequently as Zorg's weird brother Glank.
