Popular reality TV series The United States of America has been pulled by broadcasters tonight after an outburst by lead star Donald Trump on social media. The news comes as no suprise to fans, many of whom have accused the show of jumping the shark in recent years, with the most recent season widely panned as being completely unbelievable.
“It’s gone completely off the rails!” complained viewers online. “Do you seriously expect us to believe that there’s a riot in the middle of a plague and the President is threatening to send the military to shoot people while simultaneously engaged in a name-calling fight with twitter? Jesus this makes Game Of Thrones’s last season look well written by comparison.”
The once popular series has suffered a series of setbacks in recent years, with writers struggling to compete with rival program The United Kingdom for viewership. “Ever since the Trump plot twist, the two shows have gone out of their way to out-drama each other,” explained TV expert Miles Tulong. “Britain won back viewers with the Scotland secession cliff-hanger, and that proved such a hit that they did the whole story over again with Europe only months later. But then they just went a bit too far. Boris Johnson the messy haired populist leader was clearly just cribbed straight from the United States’s plotline, and then when they went and gave him that near death with COVID, and the US had to go even further. Next thing you know it’s banning twitter, and drinking bleach. The whole things just ludicrous now, they’re killing off characters left right and centre and the central character doesn’t seem to have any redeeming traits whatsoever.”
Instead writers say they are planning a new spinoff series which will explore the backstory of the child of a billionaire and a musician, named X Æ A-12 and all the wacky adventures he gets up to by borrowing his father’s space ship. The show has already recieved a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and is expected to be the biggest TV hit since the Big Bang Theory.
