The best TV show spinoffs that need to happen, but probably won't

Rebel Staff

This week TV networks swung the ax at their line-ups and some popular shows ended up on the cutting room floor.

Long-time hits like American Idol, and CSI got the boot, which has left a bevy of space for new shows to fill in the holes.  The Rebel has made a list of shows hoping to hit the airwaves next season.

Welcome Back Khadr

Omar Khadr and his lawyer, Dennis Edney, team up to remake this classic.  Khadr gets a job as a teacher in a lowly Edmonton suburb.  The show takes a comedic look at the lives of best buds Khadr & Edney… does Edney’s Scottish hooliganism rub Khadr the wrong way or do Omar’s shady friends intimidate Edney… can’t wait to see the pilot for this!


Comedy Hour with Elizabeth May

Elizabeth May pursues her dream profession in comedy.  The stand-up comic wannabe tries out her routine on stage.  This show is sure to delight the enviro-radicals and terrorist-sympathizer crowd.

Degrassi High – Mr. Trudeau’s Class

Justin Trudeau goes back to his substitute-teaching roots in this reboot.  The show takes a twist from the original series when the inexperienced Liberal leader allows drug use and directs young women on where to get abortions.  Degrassi ‘High’ has a whole new meaning.


Extreme Makeover- Senate Edition

The Canadian Senate finally gets its long overdue makeover.  Who’s out, who’s in… tune in to find out.


That’s Hockey: Harper vs. Putin

Harper and Putin clash over many things… hockey being one of them.  The leaders of Canada and Russia get their forum to debate all things on the ice.


Win Lose or Draw: ‘Prophet’ Muhammad Edition

We’re not sure if this is a threat or a game show…  either way Pamela Geller produces this Emmy favourite.  Finally, cartoonists get an opportunity on the small screen to show off their sketches of liberals’ favourite Prophet.


Mister Mulcair’s Neighbourhood

The NDP release the full details to their affordable childcare plan – 10hrs straight of Thomas Mulcair entertaining tykes from his living room.  Parents finally have an answer to responsible all-day childcare.

I think a turban would look really good on Tom, in his new role. It would really enhance that permanent angry expression that is always on his face. He would fit right in with those Muslims who glare at you like they are psychopaths! When my daughter asked me why they look at you like that, I told her, that is the look they give you, because currently in our country, you aren’t allowed to slaughter the innocent, or anyone that doesn’t share their beliefs. And if you were in their country, that death look would be followed quickly with your rape and murder.

What about Little Church in the Desert?

Don’t give the Communist Broadcasting Corporation any more ideas! We, the taxpayers will have to pony up another billion dollars to finance the shows and pay overinflated personages like Khadr, Edney and May!

May is looking more and more like Chris Farley. Must be that sense of humour.
