In Focus: Talking $#*! — and dodging doo-doo — with William Shatner
Following $#*! My Dad Says' successful premiere (12.5 million viewers), CBS has ordered a pilot script for Shh ... Don't Tell Steve.
Boasting 13,000 followers — compared to sh--mydadsays' 1.7 million followers — shhdonttellsteve focuses on the plight of a man living with a drunken slob of a roommate. Case in point:
"Steve called in sick to work saying he ate a 'bad batch of wings' He DID eat a ton of wings but it was the Beam and Cokes that did him in."
