Lil’ Bush animated series premieres tonight

Before George W. Bush was president, he was a third grader, and it's that premise that Comedy Central is basing its newest show.

The network’s newest animated comedy, Lil’ Bush, debuts tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET.

Along with Lil’ Bush, his pals Lil’ Condi, Lil’ Rummy (voiced by Iggy Pop), Lil’ Cheney, and Lil’ Jeb act as a bunch of “precocious prepubescents, terrorizing the White House and solving the world's problems before bedtime.”

Lil’ Bush takes on schoolyard rivals Lil’ Kim Jong II and becomes a cheerleader with Tony Blair.

If political humor is your laugh medicine, then Lil’ Bush may be for you.

Check out this clip for a preview.

I thought you might all be interested in reading this review of Lil’ Bush by tv critic Ed Martin: http://blogs.mediavillage.com/ed_martin/. Martin sums up his review with this question:

“Will Lil' Bush fade away in the weeks to come, or will it continue to build an audience throughout the summer months? All that can be said at this time is that if its popularity grows controversy will surely follow. The outcry will likely be music to the ears of Comedy Central executives who, thankfully, have never been eager to play it safe.”

Thanks for the link. It was a good read.

Lil' Bush isn't my kind of show, but neither is Big Brother and plenty of folks seem to love it.
