The New Laverne & Shirley Is Jessica & Britney


Laverne & Shirley was one of those shows which you secretly watched. I don't think anyone ran around saying did you see the episode last night where Squiggy came down to the girl's apartment and said, "Helloo." It was a show that was on after Happy Days, and so you didn't turn the channel because people are lazy. Plus that was on ABC. Back then ABC was the channel to watch. During the week they had Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley and they had Hart To Hart that same night I think. Oh, and Three's Company was on at the same time. On Saturdays it was all about Love Boat and Fantasy Island.

Anyway, the show was saved also because it had some really, really good actors on it like Penny Marshall and Michael McKean. Well, when I think of great actors, Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears do not come to mind. However, according to mysterious "sources," Jessica has been trying to convince Britney they should do a Laverne & Shirley type show together once Britney gets off tour. They each of course are accomplished actresses. I have to tell you that I would watch the first episode of whatever the two made. It would probably be the most atrocious thing ever put on television, but I would definitely watch the first one and I think lots of others would watch it as well. It wouldn't be a Laverne & Shirley, but it definitely would be interesting to watch. It wouldn't be the worst idea for a television show. I think it would work as long as they didn't actually believe they were good actresses.

I would watch that. Hell, my eyes would be glued to the set. But then, I watched every minute of "Chaotic."

I can see where Jessica kind of resembles Penny Marshall, same teeth and voice.

So... who would they get to play the Laverne and Shirley characters? 'Cuz obviously, they'll be Lenny and Squiggy, right?

I think they could do Three's Company

Chrissy - Jessica
Janet - Brit
Jack - Ashton Kutcher
Cindy - Denise Richards
Larry - Wilmer Valderrama
Mr. Roper - Matthew Broderick
Mrs. Roper - Teri Hatcher

Lindsey Lohan could be their crack whore neighbor.

Isn't there supoose to be a smart one? Between Jess & Brit which one would that be?

Will Jess's dad be playing her dad on the show? Cause I can see Skeezy Joe hitting on Brit.

As long as it doesn't take place in Milwaukee and involve them working in a brewery. Fuck.

They should totally have a reality show together -- they're not really capable of doing anything else. They could get the two of them a little Laverne & Shirley type apartment to live in, and some factory-type job (in a brewery, if possible) that's not too hard but requires them to actually be physically doing something all day so they can't get into trouble. Sort of like The Simple Life, except with 100% less Paris Hilton! It might actually be good for them (but we won't tell them that) and yeah, I would totally watch.

Schlemeil, Schlemozel, Hossenfeffer Incorporated!

Was it Hossenfeffer, or am I confusing Laverne & Shirley with Bugs Bunny?

I don't care how big you are in Russia, this is a shitty idea.
