Would you watch it if were a television show; or even had a segment on another news/political satire show such as "The Daily Show" or "The Colbert Report"?

I'm not sure if they could put out 25 minutes or so of footage each week, so it probably couldn't be it's own show at the moment.

But if it could; or if it were a segment of an already existing satire show, would you watch it?

I would.

EDIT: I just found my fav one.

i've always found pop to be harder to play than metal... especially shred metal... it's just really fast tremolo picking and the occasional palm mute... and the only chords you have to worry about are power chords...

I'd try to see most episodes, but I wouldn't watch it as religiously as I do for other shows.

Kool thread bro.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

Yeah, and that's why you made the poll close at a certain time, right? And not just stay open indefinitely.

I'd check it out, and assuming its the quality of the website i'd watch it every now and then.

ESPN shows the onion's spin offs of their channel about once a week. i found the one w/ tom coughlins wife needing a new husband (as opposed to head coach) w/ bill cowher being the leading candidate quite hillarious.

Most of their video segments are too disconnected to make an actual show out of, but it would be cool if they expanded more on a few ideas each show.

Franz Kafka International Airport is one of the best things I've ever watched.

Thanks for reminding me I used to read the Onion site everyday. *goes to read the Onion*
