Ok Dustin. God forbid some of us try keep our real jobs so we can put food on the table and pay our cable and internet bills. But whatever. You want your TV Whore tv news? Fine. Here. Suck it.

Several times, we’ve talked about the “Cupid” remake that’s in ABC’s pipeline. Creator Rob Thomas decided to redo his show and, with the greenlight from ABC, cast Bobby Cannavale in the role of the (maybe) love god formerly played by Jeremy Piven. Which I thought was a pretty good play. Sarah Paulson, in the role of the shrink played originally by Paula Marshall, I was more skeptical of.

Anyway, the newly-released teaser does not have me terribly excited. Granted, this video was probably cut by some network yahoo, rather than Thomas or someone close to the show, so you can’t trust the tone. But the problem for me is that, watching it, I just keep picturing Piven and Marshall. And missing them. I’ll still try the show when it comes on whenever next year ABC decides to air (probably in the spring), but I’m not sure I’m going to be able to get over the hurdle.
