wackadoodle comedienne

Bonnie Hunt deserves to be on TV every day. Naturally I was delighted to read that ABC has ordered a pilot for a new Bonnie Hunt series. I am especially encouraged by the news that it will be a single-camera show, like my most of my current favorites.

At the beginning of the NFL season, Marc & Kim did a fantasy draft spoof, where we could choose celebrities to be our family members. I selected Bonnie as my first choice. I wish I could call her "my TV crush" but a blogger named Joel Keller beat me to it with a beautifully written essay about her.

Joel points out that Bonnie is one of the all-time best talk show guests, which reminded of a photo I had saved from the Jimmy Kimmel Live web page. It shows Bonnie with Sam Meneshian, the Armenian Comedian. During the show, Bonnie seemed as amused by Sam as I am. He used to appear regularly on the Kevin & Bean show at KROQ when I worked there. I believe that Sam is a real life version of a character Andy Kaufman would have created. Maybe Bonnie can find a small role for him on her new show.

I caught Bonnie on Ellen on Thursday. Normally, I'll flip between The View and Ellen but yesterday Bonnie Hunt won out. Always a great guest.
