"Dot Comedy," an ABC misadventure, barely made it to the on-ramp. The ABC reality series made its debut last week to record low ratings. Its premiere last Friday was also its finale. But it's worth sifting through the wreckage of this fascinating failure. "Dot Comedy" wasn't so much ahead of its time as it was ill-suited to the medium. It began from the premise of every e-mail you've ever gotten from a friend recommending a wacky Web site. Hey, wanna see something funny? Check out this oddball Internet destination! As ABC found out, the concept works better as late-night Web surfing than as prime-time TV. Adapted from the British series of the same name, "Dot Comedy" was essentially "America's Funniest Home Videos" for computer. There's a germ of an idea there. So far, it's a germ you want to avoid. As 2000 comes to a close, talk of MPEGs (video) or JPEGs (photos) remains deadly in prime time. While there is a world of programming to be developed in conjunction with the Internet, we're not there yet. There are problems of speed, fluidity and even lingo to be resolved. "Dot Comedy" wanted to offer the next step in cross-referencing material from computer to TV. Hel-l-o. Cross-referencing is not fun TV. The producers dressed up the concept with a large set, hip young hosts and speedy graphics. But they forgot the main business of entertainment. They're supposed to be content providers. It's not enough to be an e-address book. Nice idea for an online venture, such as co-producer Oxygen, which has the right to "replay" the half-hour at its online site the week following the TV airing. Lousy idea for a TV network. The "Dot Comedy" hosts deserve to land elsewhere: Twins Jason and Randy Sklar ( "Battle Bots" on Comedy Central) and Annabelle Gurwitch ( "Not Necessarily the News" on HBO), have the demographics and offbeat styles for smaller niches. For now, TV productions ought to avoid putting viewers in the position of techno-envy: I want a download as fast as ABC's! "Dot Comedy" may be the first in a long line of false starts trying to bridge the gap between the two screens. There's also controversy over whether the producers should have to pay to use Internet clips. (Creators of these weird sites probably appreciate the exposure, but in the long run they'll want cash.) Eventually, someone will get rich figuring out how to incorporate the strengths of TV and computer. Until then, "Dot Comedy" will be remembered as a clever title in search of a show. KVOD, cont'd The board of Colorado Public Radio will decide by February, pending government approval of its purchase of 1340-AM from Catholic Radio Network, how to configure CPR's two stations. One option is to keep KCFR (90.1 FM) as is, and add additional programming ( "Fresh Air," "Talk of the Nation" and classical music) on 1340 AM, which will inherit the KVOD call letters but not the staff or spirit. Or, each station could be news-only or classical-only. Might the music end up on highfidelity FM, news on AM? "It's not just a financial question; none of the options are at all unrealistic," says a CPR spokesman. They're seeking input at the Web site cpr.org. 2b1af7f3a8
