(as seen on MetaFilter)
Is there a question you’ve always wanted to ask about writing TV sitcoms? (Besides "Why bother?") Ask Ken Levine, the only living blogger and twitterer who has written for M*A*S*H, Cheers and The Simpsons (back when it was good), done baseball play-by-play for 3 Major League teams (and currently does the official DodgerTalk radio show), met Rush Limbaugh (when he was
goodless awful), was once a disc jockey using the on-air alias "Beaver Cleaver" and had nothing whatsoever to do with the video game Bioshock. He’s collecting the questions for a “free teleseminar”, which is nice because he usually charges up the wazoo for seminars and based on everything I’ve seen, he’s worth it. Also, even if you HATE Twitter with every bone in your body, click the link at “twitterer” anyway and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Oh, and for MetaFilter I titled this “Why wasn’t there ever an episode of Cheers where everybody couldn’t remember anybody’s name? That would’ve been hilarious!” but I couldn’t use that here because of the way my titles are formatted.
