CBS Picks Up Its Third Twitter-Based Sitcom

Hey, white twentysomething comedy writers: Do you have a kinda fakey-sounding idea for a Twitter account where you "overhear" someone in your close proximity doing funny things that you then describe to the Internet in a slightly superior fashion? Perhaps you too could sell that idea to CBS, which has already made $#*! My Dad Says, picked up Shh ... Don't Tell Steve, and now has purchased Dear Girls Above Me, Charlie McDowell's account of what the dumb party girls in the apartment above him are doing at any given time. Just in case no one is secretly chronicling the Vulture staff's reaction to this news, we are all face-palming pretty hard right now. [Deadline]
