Andy's cop shows

N-B-SEEEEE us, article.
I don't even know this Randy Johnson or his commercials, but this is a funny article.

He’d be partnered with a female detective with enormous hair whose main job in every episode is to get kidnapped or say things like
“He’s getting away, Randy! And he has all the money from the battle of the bands! That was the budget to save the teen anti-drug program!”

I'd certainly like to watch those shows. A healthy dose of self-irony can take the ridiculous to the sublime.
(And by the way, that's what makes so much TV programming so awful: a complete lack of self-irony. No distance, no perspective.)
