The Pigsqueals: Stars of "American Idiot"

Hollywood -- In an effort to grow apace with the ratings boom of reality TV shows, Tacky Network Television has unveiled their newest offering for the Fall line-up, American Idiot.

The show will treat viewers to an inside glimpse of the life of Clyde Pigsqueal of Gackburgh, Mississippi. Pigsqueal, a 34 year-old cable maintenance representative and idiot, is a lifelong resident of the Scabdog Trailer Park in Gacksburgh, where he resides with his wife and cousin, 18 year-old Emily Pigsqueal, also an idiot, and their fourteen idiot children, ranging from ages 12 to 18.

TNT Programming Developer Ted Rundy told The Spoof, "The Pigsqueals have a very special quality that made them just right for the show. They're all idiots." Rundy expressed enthusiasm for American Idiot. "We figured hey, if viewers will tune in faithfully to watch Survivor and American Idol as if they were more important than the moon-walk in '69, they'll take to this crap like pigs to swill!"

American Idiot will feature a wide variety of activities from the daily life of the Pigsqueals, as seen in episodes such as "Clyde Beats His Wife", "Rapin' Elmer at the Tractor Pull", and "Squeal Like a Pig, Pigsqueal!" The show will also have an interactive feature, where viewers can go to the American Idiot website to vote on whether or not the Pigsqueal family tree will ever fork.

American Idiot will air this Fall, right after "Uncle Daddy's Lapbone".
