    There's a small problem with CBS's plans to test a television comedy based on a popular Twitter page and starring William Shatner.

    The title is obscene. As in the present tense of the famous actor's name.

    The New York Times has learned that CBS is taking the obvious and safe way out, using the following working title for the show: "Bleep, My Dad Says."

    A network spokesman said that "Bleep" is "not the official moniker at this point." But is it effective? Bleep, yes!

    The Twitter feed of note features 29-year-old Justin Halperin writing about the hilarious statements which come out of his father's mouth after moving back in with him. Halperin is co-writing the script for the pilot episode.

    The test episode starts shooting this weekend.
