Comedy writer Patrick Walsh ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "2 Broke Girls") teaches us how to develop a network TV pilot, how to survive an awkward childhood in Missouri, how to annoy your way into becoming an NBC page, how to adapt a book into a sitcom, how to handle the insane pressures of network television, how to make a show about religion that doesn't piss everyone off, and how to do a Master Cleanse. Then we play "Loglines," where Patrick comes up with real descriptions for fake TV shows that we realize should be real TV shows.
