John Mayer TV Show? Please Don't.

Once again NME serves up the news of the day. John Mayer is set to shoot a pilot for CBS. What kind of show would Mr. Mayer have, you ask with one eyebrow arched suspiciously? A variety show. You know, the kind that died a couple decades ago. The kind that hasn't been successful since Carol Burnett left the airwaves. The kind that just bombed recently under the care of Rosie O'Donnell. What a fantastic idea.

This could either turn into a full series or several specials. No word on that yet. It gets better. Mayer's dabbled in TV before with the one-episode wonder, John Mayer Has a TV Show.

No, this doesn't seem doomed at all.

TMI's got a lot of respect for Mayer as a musician, but this feels like that infamous ego of his rearing its ugly head. He should cage fight Kanye. That would be awesome.
