And now, my good friends,

it is timefor tonight's #HashtagWars.


If you've been watching TVhere in America recently,

you know that everything seemsto be about Russia.

But do you thinkthe reverse is true?

Do you think all of Russia'sTV channels are preoccupied

with American news?Of course they're not!

That's a trick question--they only have the one channel,

which plays nonstop reruns ofthe state-sponsored game shows,

So You Think Your Bears Can Dance

and Are You Drunker than a 5th Grader?

I mean, I say we helpour Russian friends

get some original content

and pitch themsome new television programs

with the hashtag#RussianTVShows.

Uh, examples would be Breaking Vlad.


And the big hit show,
