Part 1 of my conversation with guest Ric Dube as we present our ideas for rebooting classic sitcoms. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Speedy Ortiz, Hunx and His Punx, Moon King and Mikal Cronin.

Show notes:

- Recorded at More Lost Time world HQ

- Ric beats a cybersquatter at his own game

- Ric wants to reboot American Idol

- "Celebrity Barrel Jumping"

- Tom Scholz of the band Boston is into "freestyle figure skating"

- Ric: Judges would be voted off each season by fans

- Show would have weekly winner like Jeopardy

- Chuck Barris was talent show pioneer with The Gong Show

- Jay: Reimagined take on Sanford and Son starring Indian father and son convenience store owners

- Stretch of minority-themed sitcoms in the '70s

- UPN network had several black sitcoms in the '90s

- The Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer was comedic look at slavery

- All in the Family could never air today; people are too sensitive

- The late '60s scourge of "interracial touching"

- Recent Cheerios commercial with interracial family drew racist complaints

- Racial sensitivity in the workplace

- Ric: Reboot of The Bob Newhart Show, set in a nursing home

- Original Newhart show is a comedy classic

- Wondering how Northern Exposure has aged

- Newhart's breakthrough comedy album was recorded live

- Jay: Modern take on Chico and the Man would touch on immigration debate

- How funny was Freddie Prinze?

- Ric: Simpsons 2800 AD would combine elements of ghost-chasing cartoons

- New Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated show looks interesting

- To be continued

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Speedy Ortiz - Tiger Tank

Hunx and His Punx - Bad Skin

Moon King - Only Child

Mikal Cronin - Get Along
