TV News: Rumble, Teacher, Asylum

Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium
Saturday’s online political issues debate between Bill O’Reilly and Jon Stewart had technical issues as organisers claimed “overwhelming demand had overloaded the servers”.

As a result, an undetermined number of viewers willing to pay $4.95 to stream the event were left without the live feed. It’s suggested a refund could be made available later this week. [Source: Variety]

Bad Teacher
Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg have sold a single-camera TV series adaptation to CBS based on last year’s hit feature comedy “Bad Teacher”.

Like the film, the show will follow a foul-mouthed, gold-digging junior high school teacher. Sony Pictures TV, Mosaic and Quantity Entertainment will produce. [Source: Deadline]
