Caption

The Idiot Box is an informational program available only through the tubes of the internets. It strives to document the goings-on of three young all-American slackers who refuse to pay for cable, and are stuck watching a small television station in the heart of America's heartland.

Production InformationEdit

The program is produced by 2,000 Monkeys With Typewriters, a production company run by comedian Pab Sungenis, who also created the comic strip The New Adventures Of Queen Victoria, and Drunken Barfight Productions. The program was announced in July of 2008, with a "teaser promo" first uploaded to The YouTube on August 1, 2008, announcing a debut date of September 26, 2008.

The show centers around the daily adventures of three slackers, Davey, Chad, and P.J., who are too lazy to do anything but watch TV, and too cheap to pay for cable. As a result, they sit around all day watching Channel 37, their local low-budget UHF station, making fun of the old re-runs it shows.

Each episode will be approximately 30 minutes, and will feature the boys watching an episode of an old TV show, providing a running commentary mocking the show, and several skits occasionally connected to the show they are watching.

Feeds for the program will be available through the program's website, IdiotBoxers.tv and possibly other sources.
