To advertise Judd Apatow’s upcoming cancer comedy Funny People, NBC.com’s webmaster has helpfully agreed to host a site for Yo Teach!, a fake sitcom appearing in the movie, so as to make it look like the show is actually part of NBC’s fall lineup.

By the way, the reason we knew it wasn’t actually a real NBC show is because the site implies Teach! has been picked up for a second season. Click for video!
