(CNN) -- If you've ever dreamed of creating your own TV show, forget moving to Los Angeles, finding an agent and waitressing until your big break.
Just blog about your angry dad, idiotic roommate or collection of embarrassing photos.
The humor site is known for its hilarious snapshots of families sporting matching mullets, garish couture and uncomfortable poses. How ABC (which hasn't commented on the announcement) will turn that concept into a successful program remains to be seen. After all, the site is just a bunch of embarrassing pictures.
Networks seem to be ready to snap up more Web 2.0 "ideas" after the unexpected success of CBS' "$#*! My Dad Says," based on the Twitter diary of a man documenting his father's cantankerous words of wisdom. The sitcom, starring William Shatner as the grumpy dad, is so far dominating its time slot.
Shatner's unique charisma definitely helped the show. But it's obvious that networks now see social-networking phenomena, not great acting, as the trend's cash cow.
Two weeks after premiering the show, CBS bought the rights to Shh... Don't Tell Steve, another Twitter account in which a guy secretly documents his roommate's strange, booze-addled behavior.
No word yet on who will play Steve. Too bad Shatner's busy.
