Rocking the Prime Time Line-Up, Part 2
On Friday, after word that Mick Jagger will star in his very own ABC sitcom this fall, I asked readers to come up with alternate sitcom pitches (because surely we can do better than the current Jagger premise -- a group of New Yorkers trying to rob his apartment. Talk about mission improbable.)

Cat Scratch Liver: Ted Nugent gets a liver transplant and has to take a job in a veterinarian clinic. (JP Evans)
Money for Nothing: Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler teaches buttoned-down students from New England prep schools how to become petty street criminals and pickpockets. (Ed)
The Simpsons: Jessica and Ashlee Simpson both gain 50 pounds and learn how difficult the life of a musician is when you have to survive on talent alone. (Matt)
Who's Left? Surviving Who members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey doggedly continue with their reunion tours, auditioning new drummers and bassists at each stop to fill in for their deceased bandmates. (James)
Better Keith Than Me: To win a $1 Million World's Ugliest Man Contest, an unemployed man kidnaps Keith Richards and has his plastic surgeon brother switch faces with Keith. (Jeff)
