Has TV Really Hit 'Peak Vagina'?

tampon fairySo this just happened: Two and a Half Men creator Lee Aronsohn told Hollywood Reporter that he's all sick of TV shows written by women. "Enough ladies. I get it. You all have periods." And then, because that was clearly way too polite, he added: "We're approaching peak vagina on television, the point of labial saturation."

Now now, before you start calling Lee names and declaring all vaginal services closed to him forever, let's see this from his perspective. After all, if women are whining on TV about their periods, when will we ever have time to appreciate men's farts?

You know what? No. Screw him. Peak vagina? We're nowhere near close. Let me show you, Lee Aronsohn, what peak vagina really would look like on television.


Here's your new f$%*ing fall lineup:

  • Twin Vagina Peaks
  • Don't Trust the Asshole in Apartment 54
  • Two and a Half Synchronized Cycling Women (What, it's a show about bikes!)
  • Fab Femmes
  • Dirty Ol' Man Town
  • Charlize's Little Devils (Sexy young men solve mysteries in bikini briefs and then go out for mimosas)
  • Game of Hormones
  • Tonight Show With Melissa McCarthy
  • Late Night with Kristin Wiig
  • You Are SO NOT a Loser!
  • CSI Another Goddamn Rape Unit
  • Oprah Winfrey's The Gently Guided Apprentice
  • Everyone I Bagged Before I Met Your Father
  • Where Is the Women's Restroom?
  • Woman Up*

*Oh never mind, that's a real show called Girls.

I guess it goes without saying that all the executive producers and studio execs would be female, too. But in the end, I just have to wonder, what's the matter Aronsohn? Don't you like vaginas? You guys spend all your waking and sleeping hours scheming how to get inside one and then you claim you don't want them on TV? I just don't understand.

Do you think there's enough television shows by and about women? Too many?
