Our Long National Nightmare is Over: Network Television Vanquishes Olivia Munn

Today on Pajiba, we celebrate the 2nd greatest day of the year (behind Butthole Day, of course). It’s a rare day in recent network television history, but a day that should be lauded for it represents a miraculous oddity: A network television executive has seen fit to remove his head from his anus and allowed oxygen to return to his brain just long enough to reward the long-suffering fans of the majority of NBC’s Thursday night comedy line-up.

Today is a day that will live in infamy. Many months ago, we became the innocent victims of the unprovoked attacks of NBC, putting the people of our nation — and their senses of humor — in grave danger. Very many American brain cells were lost during that onslaught. But the unbounded determination of our people has survived the blows. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is a date we will always remember—and they will never forget! The righteous might of the American television viewing public has risen above the aggressive and deceitful nature of Olivia Munn.

NBC has cancelled the television sitcom “Perfect Couples.”

On Thursday April 14th, “Perfect Couples” will be replaced by the “Paul Reiser” show, a long-delayed program that looks like a cross between “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Mad about You.” But that’s unimportant. What’s important is that the plug has been pulled on the 101st best television show currently airing on television. No longer will we have to suffer the foul slings and piercing arrows between “Community” and “The Office.”

Olivia Munn can’t hurt us anymore.
