I'm a dorkety dork dork

Writer's Block: On the Airwaves

If you had your own radio or television station, what would it be called and what kind of programming would it play?

Ok, I didn't see that the question said "station" and not "show" until after I wrote this, so let's just say that when my own show wasn't on, the rest of the station would be devoted to bringing back awesome TV shows that were mercilessly killed, like Kyle XY and Pushing Daisies. *shakes fist at whichever poopyheads decided to cancel them* And it would be called ADE. Which would stand for something silly, like "Ade's Delirious Entertainment" or something.

My show would be like a cross between a comedy sketch show and a talk show, and my friends would be on it. Let's see, what would I call it? Probably something boring but simple like "The Ade Show." We'd do all sorts of crazy skits and impressions of people. There would be animals on the show too (cats curled up on the couches and making the special guests sit on the floor, piles of puppies to fulfill the cuteness quota, and maybe an elephant, because elephants are awesome). During the "talk" portion, I'd sit around with my friends, and we'd discuss all sorts of things and make innuendo out of everything. We'd have a special guest on every show, and I'd interview them. I'd skip the typical questions everyone else asks, like "are you dating anyone right now?" or "how did it feel to work with [other famous person]?" I'd ask things like "what always makes you laugh?" and "pirates or ninjas?" and "what was the weirdest thing anyone has ever said to you?" I'd have a variety of really interesting people on the show, like Paula Deen, Tori Amos, and Temple Grandin. I'd like to hang out with them sometime. (The closest I ever got was clamming up at the last minute after waiting 2 hours to see Paula Deen and awkwardly saying "it's so nice to meet you" while she signed my cookbook. I was kind of starstruck, I'll admit.) I'd also have a cute little manservant who would be ridiculously flaming and wear outrageous costumes. (Hmmm, Onch did a great job of being Paris Hilton's little "pet" on season 2... maybe I'll hire him. I love Onch!) Of course, the show would have to be an hour long to fit in all the awesomeness.
