MTV to Launch New “Comedy Awards” Bringing Number Of Unwatchable Awards Shows To “All Of Them”

    People complain that baseball keeps too many stats. Someone is always leading the league in some odd category. Most two-out hits in a night game versus a left-handed pitcher not born in the United States. Bet there is a stat for that. It’s the same with Hollywood. Everyone thinks they deserve an award for something. When they don’t get said award, screw it, let’s make it up.

    Viacom’s MTV Networks, led by Comedy Central, is starting a new comedy awards franchise, The Comedy Awards. The first annual Comedy Awards show will be held at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Saturday, March 26 and will air on Sunday, April 10, 2011, running simultaneously on MTV Networks’ Comedy Central, Spike TV, TV Land, VH1 and Nick At Nite.

    Yikes! Running on five stations at one time? That’s proof the awards are a sham, Viacom has to put them on multiple networks just to get them some attention. I’ll bet money they add those numbers together and claim it’s the “most watched awards show on cable on a Saturday night in March of all time.” See what I did there?

    In conjunction with the launch of The Comedy Awards, the MTVN Entertainment Group has joined forces with the Entertainment Industry Foundation to launch The American Comedy Fund, designed to provide  financial assistance, health benefits and other resources for comedians  in need.

    This first recipient will be Carlos Mencia. Guy needs some funny material. Probably a bowl of soup too.
