Couric Fleshes Out 'Mulsim Cosby Show' Idea

Re: Muslim Cosby Show Ideas

Hey guys. I’ve been meaning to do this for about a week, but with the assassination in Pakistan and the bombing of the Coptic church in Egypt, things have been busy over here on the news side.

I know I’m a little out of my element here, being a serious and super-well respected journalist, but I really was serious the other day when I said on air that we need a “Muslim Cosby Show.” As you guys know, that warm portrayal of a middle class African-American family in colorful sweaters did so much to cleanse this country of bigotry – that and my time on “Today” with Bryant Gumbel.

You guys are the experts at entertainment – I still can’t believe they cancelled “Dr. Vegas” – but I had a couple of ideas to run past you.

Do you think it will include one of those “serious” introductions where a couple of the cast members give a spiel about how they hope the episode will help parents "break the ice" when it comes time for them to talk to THEIR daughters about “the importance of sacrificing their sexuality to perpetuate our fascist cult”?

The Canadian state-run media already have such a show, called “Little Mosque on the Prairie”

I doubt anyone watches it, but its typical propoganda one would expect from the leftist tossers in Toronto. The muzzies are funny and intelligent, and the infidels provide slapstick humor and stupid jokes.

Yeah, and then there’ll be the one where the guy thinks his wife is attracted to another man, so he rips her eyes and tongue out right there on the street, leaving her to choke to death on her own blood...and the one where the guy thinks she’s showing too much leg to her doctor, so he chops it off with an axe...

The only problem with the concept is no one is going to watch it. The Crosby Show was a success because Bill Crosby was an established entertainer with comedy records, comedy shows, TV specials and a TV series already under his belt before the Crosby Show was even pitched.

Now, what actor is going to be the lead? And the supporting cast will be whom?

I wonder how long any politically correct sponsor will buy adds for a show that has established a new low rating?

Political Correctness doesn't sell in the rest of the nation has Hollywood continues to prove each year. I guess it TV’s turn now.

Call it “My Three Muslims” or “I Dream of Muhammed” or “Muhammeds Island” or “Leave It To Achmed”.

Bill Cosby is awesome, and as an aside he happens to be conservative, and spent all of his professional life helping underpriviliged kids with talent get careers. Oh, and his not Muslim, he's an unabashed Christian. I am an actual fan of his, and have been since his standup days in Philly, Jersey and NY.

To attempt to compare Bill Cosby's humor to some manufactured attempt at inventing Muslim humor is comparing apples and black holes. Phylicia Rashad apparently converting to Islam in season 5 or 6 notwithstanding, the two - Cosby's brilliance and humor and some fake Islamist attempt - are not in the same universe. The show nosedived in the ratings shortly after she married Ahmad...for good reason. Besides, the marriage was pretty short lived.

“As you guys know, that warm portrayal of a middle class African-American family...”

Middle class??? Upper middle class at the very least. I believe Mr. Huxtable was a Medical doctor and his wife had a PHD. Remember their house??? Hardly middle class.

Please tell me if I’m wrong.

you guys are spot on... the Huxtables were Christian...they went to Christian church on Sundays... sang gospel songs... even if you aren't black, upper middle class nor educated, you can relate to some aspect of the show... there would be no audience for a Muslim Cosby-type show...

Has Katie remarried yet?

If not, let’s encourage her to marry a Muslim and then move to a middle-east country, preferably Iran or Pakistan.

Then we’ll see how in love she’ll be with the idea of a Muslim family.

If an Allah cartoon in Europe caused a worlwide bloodbath of Muslim “outrage”, just imagine a show trying to show Sharia in a humorous light.

On "Little Mosque on the Prairie".

The muzzies are funny and intelligent, and the infidels provide slapstick humor and stupid jokes.

Agreed, but I can add more. First the creator of the show, according to Wikipedia is Zarqa Nawaz. Born in Liverpool, England she is "a muslim woman of Pakistani origin".

Nawaz portrayal of rural Saskatchewan women is interesting. I saw one episode where the wife (turned muslim) is portrayed as demanding his sexual attentions and coming on to her husband. The man appeared as if his dignity was being assaulted.

Another woman is invited to their house and gets plastered with drink. She cannot go home in her condition. His wife, she of the demanding attentions, implores hubby, to take her to the spare bedroom, His dark visage scowls with displeasure, as he supports the drunken non-muslim woman, into the room.

Good old Zarka, no fatwa on her. (chuckle).
