MTV has ordered six episodes of The Andy Dick Show, a 30-minute variety series that will feature a mix of comedy sketches, short films and music video parodies. Promoting the show to the media at the Television Critics Association press tour, the former Newsradio actor jumped out of a birthday cake the network had wheeled out in honor of its 20th anniversary. Wearing nothing but a thong, he proceeded to prance around the ballroom squirting whip cream on his body and massaging his nipples. Ironically, Dick then took to the stage and told the roomful of journalists: "You guys creep me out." The Andy Dick Show premieres Feb. 27 at 10:30 p.m.
