Stacy McCain does the fish-in-a-barrel thing with Katie Couric, who seems to think that the cure for Americans' suspicion of radical Islam would be a Muslim version of The Cosby Show. Putting aside for the moment the fact that there just aren't any Muslim comics as funny and popular among the kufr as the Cos was among whites, I think la Couric is guilty of gross insensitivity and ignorance here. How can such a worldly, with-it talking head gal be unaware of that smash CBC hit Little Mosque On The Prairie? I mean, according to Wikipedia, Fox is looking at doing an American version.

I saw the first episode of Little Mosque. It was about as funny as any Canadian comedy is. More light chuckles than belly laughs.

Certainly not as funny as the first scene of the first episode of The Cosby Show, when Bill picks up a baseball bat when he sees Theo's report card. "What are you doing?" asked Claire. Bill pauses, looks at her, and says "I'm going to talk to the boy!"

LMOTP seems to have a following up there, at least enough to justify doing DVD sets for the first four seasons. Be interesting to see what, if anything, Fox does with it, and how well it goes over down here.
