Is Dan Savage Scoring His Own HBO Show?


So he hopes. The Seattle sex scribe is in Los Angeles taping a pilot with the working title … Savage Love. Of course. It hasn’t been picked up or anything, but they’re taping a not-for-broadcast pilot and if you want, you can be part of the studio audience. Savage says the show will “bring a new kind of conversation to TV about sex.” Hopefully he’ll have the chance to get into what cheating opposite marriage advocate Sen. John Ensign likes to do behind closed doors. We’re just excited to see something fill the void ever since Talk Sex with Sue Johanson left American airwaves last year.

    I will def.. tune in.

    HBO sorely needs a new show. Hung and Nurse Jackie are two of the worst shows I may’ve ever seen. I so wanted to like them.

  • Qjersey

    I like Dan as a commentator, but he has absolutely no education or training that qualifies him to give advice on anything other than ‘technique.’

    Really? Have you seen his college transcripts or his resume?

  • Alexandre

    I love him. I think his intelligence is unbelievably sexy!

  • InExile

    Very smart guy who knows his stuff. Love seeing him do battle with right wingers over gay rights, he usually crushes them with facts.

    Nuse jackie is on Showtime and is amazing. That, and Weeds are the only TV worth watching this summer.

  • rudy

    Savage is reasonably good-looking, has a terrific job, is a parent, and brags about his partner’s large penis.

    Given all that, you’d think he’d be more generous to the troubled folks who write him rather than behaving like some snarky prick who is nowhere near as amusing as he thinks he is.

    I will give him points for inventing santorum, though.

  • jay

    Love Dan and his column/podcast/books. Will definitely tune in!!

  • Lydon

    I will definitely tune in. The man’s brilliant.

    I think he’s a rapidly aging troll who if he were anymore in love with himself his head would explode inside his own asshoe.

  • The Gay Numbers

    I think his columns are lazy. He has a one size fit all response to situations that involvecd a libetarian streak about relationships, when they are a bit more complicated than that. but, to each his own.

  • schlukitz

    I think the man is cool.


    Savage, babe come savage me xoxoxo.
