If She Ran the Show, the "Satelite of Love" Would Have Been Beautifully Decorated
Tuesday, August 12, 2008 | posted by Mike

Despite her cold-as-ice reputation, it seems like Martha Stewart isn't afraid to laugh...at herself.

That's the premise of a new show that will air on Fine Living.
Can Martha Stewart take a pie in the face — even one she baked herself? Fine Living Network is about to find out.

On Sept. 16, Fine Living will unveil a new original comedy series built around a provocative premise: mocking Ms. Stewart. For a half hour, two hosts will critique — in “candid and often acerbic” language, according to the channel — old clips from her 1990s cooking and craft show. Fine Living, part of the E. W. Scripps Company, calls the series “Whatever, Martha!” 
That's nice.  It's always reassuring when a celebrity can be down to earth.  But, really, being popular enough to base a whole program on your persona didn't really make me feel warm and tingly.

And then I read this:
Martha Stewart is not widely known for her sense of humor. But she is in on this particular joke. In fact, she created it, dreaming up the premise after watching reruns of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” during a sleepless night. That series, produced from 1988 to 1999, delivered sarcastic commentary about old horror movies, and had blossomed into a cable cult hit.
Wait a minute -- Martha is a MSTie!?!?  Oh, man...my respect for her just went through the roof.
