In what may be the single-worst idea for a ridiculously terrible scripted TV show in Hollywood’s long and spectacular history of terrible ideas, Fox is developing an alleged sitcom that will star Wilmer Valderrama as a character based on “Dog Whisperer” Cesar Millan. And I think I speak for everyone when I say, “WOOF.”
Details are still being ironed out, but it appears that Valderrama would play the character based on Millan, who has built a lucrative empire based on his skills as a professional dog trainer…

And why didn’t that series move forward? I’ll give you a hint: the answer begins with “Wilmer” and ends in “Valderrama.” And the answer is two words long. Give up? It’s Wilmer Valderrama, because he’s f-cking TERRIBLE. When you’re the most annoying member of a cast that includes Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson, you deserve to be torn apart by wild dogs. So let’s cross our fingers, people.
