If They Made More Shows Out Of Commercials

In 2007 we all dodged a cultural bullet. Based on the popularity of the Geico cavemen, a show "Cavemen" was created. It lasted 8 episodes before mercifully being pulled. It was terrible (despite Nick Kroll and Sam Huntington being involved). And that seemed to scare everyone from making TV shows out of commercials (like how "Joey" scared everyone out of spinoffs or how "Batman & Robin" scared everyone from comic book movies). However, if it had succeeded, these are the shows we would have to put up with today:

"Hamster Dam"

"Peggy on the block"

"Pig Headed"


Staring: The Geico talking pig
