"Bad Teacher" on TV? Errr ... OK

The movie is naughty by nature--how's this gonna work?

October 09, 2012|By Dana Moran | RedEye

"Bridesmaids" may have been the big lady-comedy of 2011, but "Bad Teacher" is taking it one step further. The Cameron Diaz snarkfest that should've been a lot funnier than it actually was is being adapted for CBS, deadline.com reports. Given some of the racy scenes in the flick -- and the fact that the network already had a show called "$#*! my Dad Says" -- we're a little curious about how the movie will be edited for content. Here's our best guess as to how things will play out.
