Don't fear, CBS hasn't decided to bring over Who Wants to Be a Millionaire from ABC, but instead has picked up a new comedy pilot called Single White Millionaire, from writer Ricky Blitt. This is Family Guy alum Blitt's second attempt at a comedy, the first being a short-lived sitcom called The Winner, which starred Rob Corddry and was developed with Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane. SWM is about a millionaire who is ready to get serious and settle down, which I'm sure will not go as well as he had planned.Hopefully, this time Blitt will strike gold on CBS, where sitcoms still live, breathe and sometimes even last (sorta). Also on CBS' order slate are the following dramas: The Mentalist, Ny-Lon, Mythological X and Can Openers.

Being a fan of both The Daily Show and Family Guy, Ive been looking forward to The Winner and tonights pilot did not disappoint me. Family Guy creators Seth MacFarlane and Ricky Blitt successfully bring their oddball humor to the shows main character, Glen Abbott, and I think there is no one better to portray the 32-year old loser than Daily Show expatriate Rob Corddry.First off, I love how the show is set in 1994. The subtle (and not so subtle) 90s references cracked me up, among them Glens Party of Five mention and of course, the O.J. Simpson car chase. I think one of the funnier lines in tonights pilot was Glens mom, Irene (Linda Hart), declaring that O.J. couldnt hurt a fly, rivaled only by Allison (Erinn Hayes) noting that Clinton seems to be a good family man. I love how the writers intentionally take us back to 1994 through these references and Im excited to see more of them as the series continues....
