Merge two TV shows and saave the world!

I was catching up on this season’s 24 - I’m way behind - and there was a brief scene that made me think “The guys from C.S.I. would know how to solve that problem.” You know, instead of Bauer torturing someone to find out where they’d been and what they were up to, the C.S.I. guys run a few tests and say, “He’s been here, he was doing this.”

I know, I know, the lab tests take a while to process and, as Jack would say, “We just don’t have the time!”, but still, they should call the C.S.I. guys.

What other shows could solve everyone’s problems by merging?


Heroes and Mythbusters.

Medium and Penn and Teller’s Bullshit

Allison snaps awake and gasps for air.
Penn: Bullshit!

Pushing Daisies and Wonderfalls…

Star Trek and that annoying primetime home renovation show.

Replicators and transporters would allow the host to give us all the home of our dreams.

According to Jim and Dexter. Dexter can put them all out of their misery – as painfully as possible.

Lost and Gilligan’t Island.

The Suite Life on Deck and Lost.
I hate the kids on that show, and hopefully the others can take them all to the temple and otherize them beyond recognition.

Oh, well done.


I’ve often thought about *House *and Monk.

Imagine if Monk’s idiosyncrasies were added to House, and vice-versa.

I was thinking of merging Jim and Two and a Half Men so they only waste a half hour of TV a week instead of a full hour, but I like yours better.

So then:

Law and Order: Criminal Intent and Two and a Half Men

Charlie squints and stiffly mumbles a line about sex with a woman as the detectives haul him away for killing his mother, brother, and nephew.

Would they drive each other nuts, or be fascinated with each other?

Would House play Monk like a puppet?

House figures out that Monk’s phobias are the result of an undiagnosed physiological condition, and cures him of it (after almost killing him a few times, of course).

Meanwhile, despite being drugged, probed, scanned and prodded in multiple ways, Monk observes everything happening around him, and solves Kutner’s murder without leaving his bed.

In the final scene (mercifully this time, not a musical montage) House and Monk trade insightful and embarrassing observations about Natalie and Wilson, who are in the room and have begun dating.
