    CBS has bought the rights to a sitcom called Smells Like Teen Spirit, like the Nirvana song. And the deodorant.

    The Big Bang Theory writer Dave Goetsch is behind the show. It's a family sitcom that follows a teenager who "forgoes Harvard and instead opts to launch a multi-billion-dollar Internet company from his garage with the assistance of his sister, best friend and his 1990s indie-rock parents," so says The Hollywood Reporter.

    We love that concept. Wonder if the Nirvana song will serve as the theme song.

    Does this sound like a show you would watch?
