Oxygen Looking for Fresh Funny Females, But Not Campus Ladies

Comedy is in Oxygen’s DNA–6-2007, press release.
Comedy is Oxygen’s voice–1-2007, at the upfronts.

FBLA guesses if you say it often enough, someone will think it’s true.

Oxygen, in a daring move fresh from five years ago, is searching for female comedy creators by way of a contest, the Create-a-Series Comedy Competition.

The winning series (which Oxygen will own) will run on on its broadband channel SheDidWhat.tv. Molly Shannon, whose own funniness is debatable, will host.

If Oxygen is so committed to comedy, why not just bring back Campus Ladies?
