Hilarious satire of the American's idea of television entertainment. The movie and tv "in-jokes" are the best part. Not for everyone. If you are media-savvy, however, you will LOVE IT. Oh, and Sigourney dominates.

The TV Set is a hilarious look at the dark underbelly of television programming and the brain-dead geniuses who run it.

David Duchovny leaves Mulder behind as series writer/creator Mike Klein who struggles to maintain the quality and integrity of his show, "The Wexler Chronicles," and get it on the air in spite of "suggestions" from the network suits in casting, making of pilot to the network upfronts. Sigourney Weaver has a deliciously meaty role as Lenny, head of programming for the Panda network, who proudest of the success of the network's powerhouse hit "Slut Wars." If you've ever wondered what "they" were thinking when they decided to put this show on the air, see "The TV Set" and the answers will become painfully, hysterically clear. Expand

Saw this absolutly pitch perfect satire last year at the Tribeca Film Festival, I'm so happy it is getting a wider audience. Great Hollywood satire with an awesome cast. Sigourney Weaver Steals the show as a Ari-Gold-esque tv executive Saw this absolutly pitch perfect satire last year at the Tribeca Film Festival, I'm so happy it is getting a wider audience. Great Hollywood satire with an awesome cast. Sigourney Weaver Steals the show as a Ari-Gold-esque tv executive who is given some of the best one liners in recent history. A must see. Expand

A shameless ripoff of "For Your Consideration" which was equally annoying. A typical Hollywood inside joke on the rest of us, only it backfired, because the joke was on them for being so arrogant. What a waste of time and money!
