Dustin loved Paul Blart: Mall Cop, which is no surprise really, because he’s got a strange affection for all things mall-related (just mention Cinnabon or Hot Topic around him and he’s giddy as a school girl on prom night). So he’s surely ecstatic that Fox has picked up a “comedy” pilot about a mall cop. “Walorsky” is about a former cop who’s now been relegated to a Buffalo mall. And it’s a safe bet that he’s fat. And kinda inept. And gung ho. And hi-lar-ious!

And if that’s not good enough for you, Fox has also picked up “The Station,” another “comedy” from Ben Stiller. The show is about a South American CIA office, and hilarity ensues when the office takes on the chore of putting a new dictator in power. …Actually, at least that’s an original and interesting idea. With Stiller involved, however, even if just in a title-only capacity, his stink will likely taint the show’s potential. But I still have more faith in it than “Buffalo Mall Cop, Fat and Loaded,” you know?
