PETER SAGAL, HOST:

Now, panel, what will happen on the pilot of this Fox show about NPR? Luke Burbank?

LUKE BURBANK: Absolutely Zero Temptation Island.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Roxanne Roberts?

ROXANNE ROBERTS: Welcome to Family Reties. Michael J. Fox stars in this wacky comedy about a conservative talk show host juggling his aging hippy parents and his possibly liberal son and NPR pledge drive director.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And Alonzo Bodden?

ALONZO BODDEN: Unbalanced, a new Fox sitcom about NPR. In the pilot episode, three liberal professors and a gay priest go undercover at a NASCAR race and are found out when someone asks directions to a local gun show and they don't know the way.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

BODDEN: Bill O'Reilly will be guest starring as God.

(SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)

CARL KASELL: And if any of that happens, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: Thank you, Carl Kasell. Thanks also to Luke Burbank, Alonzo Bodden, Roxanne Roberts. Thanks to all of you for listening. We're glad you did. I'm Peter Sagal. We'll see you next week.
