TiVo Alert – Free Radio on VH1

“Free Radio” is a brand new series on VH1. It’s not about radio pirates or the former CBS “Free FM” outlets – it’s an “improvised comedy series” whose takeoff point is the travails of radio-show intern Lance. I’ll let the VH1 release take it from there: “Lance answers the call to greatness by jumping in to host a popular morning show, when the real host defects to satellite radio.” “Lance’s hosting effort, full of botched celebrity interviews, on-air tantrums and all-around buffoonery, is so spectacularly awful that ratings actually go up.” There’s also the expected “dysfunctional staff” at KBOM, the home of the new “Moron in the Morning” show. Guest shots are from the likes of Kiefer Sutherland, Ray Romano, Tony Shalhoub and Fred Willard. “Free Radio” may not do much for the image of over-the-air radio, but strike-weary viewers looking for anything “new” in the TV listings might dig it – starting tomorrow, February 1 on VH1. Hey, at least none of the radio people in the series is in rehab, which has been VH1’s usual prescription for success lately.
