Finally, a Sitcom Worth Watching

One of the funniest guys in Hollywood is finally getting his own sitcom.

While it is highly likely that he never wanted one and that's why he's never had one, I still think it is good news...something to look forward to in this bleak TV world, laced with derivative reality shows and stuff that just doesn't live up to the hype.

I'm talking, of course, about Jason Lee.

Lee, whose antics stole the show in nearly all the Kevin Smith movies that he acted in, is going to star in a show called "My Name is Earl" in which he plays a low-rent crook who wins the lottery and uses his limited (but highly effective) intelligence to right former wrongs (if that sounds like I copied it, I basically did from the NewsAskew web site.

Sounds great so far, although I'm still mad that he isn't playing Fletch in Smith's Fletch Won.

Also starring in this comedy will be Eddie Steeples, best known as OfficeMax's Rubberband Man. Steeples will be playing Darnell, the friend of the title character.
