The TO Sitcom Can't Possibly Be Real

Terrell Owens is developing a scripted sitcom based on and starring who else, but himself. This is not a joke. It is apparently all too real. Check out the ridiculous plot. Although make sure you aren't drinking anything in front of your computer when you do.

In "8 & 1" — a play on T.O.’s number 81 — Owens would play an NFL star named Terrell O’Neal nearing the end of his career who lives with his mother, his best friend, two baby mamas, and four kids.

TO says it is "loosely" based on his real life.

"It’s loosely based on my life and my career. I have four kids by three different moms," T.O. said. "It will showcase my skills as an actor, which is something I want to do after football."

That's not "loosely" based on your life, TO. It is exactly your life. The only thin different is your last name. Otherwise, it's just a description of your life. Also, what "skills" as an actor? Has anyone else not noticed that he has almost no personality? He does outrageous things for attention sometimes, but if you've ever watched that awful TOcho show or his show on VH1, you'd know that they were both a complete bore.

I know there's a lot of crap on TV these days and a lot of channels have a lot of time to fill. But how on earth will this show ever get made? The day "8 & 1" ever gets on the air is the day I just give up.
