Am planning on tuning in to this show...
 
"I love these people and I want the audience to love them. They’re human beings, their hearts are in the right place. We all make bad choices at times, and we’re all confused, so these are realistic portraits of people who want to be kind to each other. But they’re also confused and they make mistakes. So that makes them sympathetic.

Someone’s despicable if they don’t consider other people’s emotions, points-of-view, and they’re sociopaths. I give each character issues, usually my own issues. Or I spread them around, or come up with other issues I’ve heard about, because I want the audience to look at these people as exaggerated versions of humanity to feel like, 'I’m not alone. I’m struggling to be normal, happy, less confused.’ And they help each other. They might have moments of narcissism, but they care for each other. So that helps them not be despicable."
In Blunt Talk, Jonathan Ames follows up HBO's Bored to Death, with the story of a disastrous newsman and his dysfunctional staff.

+Google's new ad on the power of questioning & what I think about it. http://amorebeautifulquestion.com/?p=4436 #GoogleApp  
“You should sue Google!” That half-joking suggestion was from a friend who’d just seen a new TV ad for Google—a 1-minute ode to the power of a question.

Story
Tagline
Author & speaker: innovation, creativity, and questioning
Introduction
My latest book is about the power of questioning, called A More Beautiful Question (Bloomsbury). A previous book was Glimmer: How Design Can Transform Your Life, and Maybe Even the World (Penguin Press), (retitled CAD Monkeys, Dinosaur Babies, and T-Shaped People for the U.S. paperback). In 2011, I published a novel about Detroit's Purple Gang, called The Purples. I also run an executive-level editorial service called WBLK Media.
