Acceptable.TV was a television program from the makers of Channel 101 that first aired on VH1 on March 23, 2007. The final episode of the program aired on May 11, 2007.

According to an interview with Indy Mogul, Dan Harmon has said that Acceptable.tv has been cancelled[1].

Format

Each 30-minute episode consists of five 2.5 minute mini-shows created by the Acceptable.TV team, and one submitted by a viewer. After each episode, viewers can go online and vote for their two favorites. The two that receive the most votes will be continued in the following episode, and the remaining three will be canceled and replaced by new mini-shows.

In addition, the website for Acceptable.TV allows users to create and upload their own 2.5 minute TV shows. Each week, five user-created shows are deemed "acceptable" by the show's creators, and other users are able to vote for their favorite. The top voted episode airs alongside the five cast-created shows on the VH1 television program the following Friday.

According to the Acceptable.TV website, "Acceptable.tv is a very simple show based on a very simple premise: namely, that some stuff is better than other stuff. In the case of Channel 101, it was that some ideas for television were just better than … what we were watching on tv. In the case of "Acceptable TV," we're saying that some under-three-minute TV shows are better than other short comic films on the web."[2]

Cast members include creator Dan Harmon, JD Ryznar, Justin Roiland, Drew Hancock, DeMorge Brown, Eric Falconer, Chris Romano, Jennifer Flack, Jen Kirkman, Ryan Ridley, and Ryan Nagata.[2]
