Is news of a Michael Bolton comedy series at ABC unexpected? Sure. But unwelcome? Only if you haven't experienced the SNL digital short he made with the Lonely Island last year, "Captain Jack Sparrow." If Bolton had even half as much involvement in the creative process of that clip as Jay-Z has with the Brooklyn Nets (which would amount to 0.0075 percent), we'll investigate Michael Bolton's Daughter Is Destroying My Life. It's about a young professional helming Bolton's social media presence.
