For those of you that watched the TV Series "Episodes" last season on Showtime:
There was a couple of episodes when Merc Lapidus and his assistant talked about a "shitty Talking Dog show".
In fact, the very last episode of the season, an employee was fired by Merc, because he said that the "talking dog show" was funny enough for putting it on air next season (in-show).
Next thing I know, I'm watching Wilfred on FX, and indeed, it is about a talking dog, and in a channel other than Showtime.
Do you think this was on purpose, to make people think bad things about Wilfred prior to its airing? Or just a coincidence?
