At work we were discussing TV programs that could be made for programmers and I thought of examples like X Re-Factor, Cache in the Attic, Day Breakpoint before I seized on the only one that was funny CSS Miami.
For non-programmers CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets which is used to style most of the websites you look at. For programmers CSI Miami is a comedy show set in a South Florida forensics lab led by Horatio Cane who wears glasses. Every week they solve difficult crimes very easily while looking beautiful and making pithy remarks.
Join them together and you get a cartoon that will appeal to literally a couple of people. Indeed so worried was I that someone else may have stolen my hilarious programmer TV idea that I Googled it and found out that programmers have only used the pun potential to write sites about CSS so my cartoon is safe.
