Fans’ suggested names for Steve’s new show:

  • Going Postal (APKeatonLunchbx)
  • Post Office (Cindy)


  1. Wow that looks good…I really look forward to it! When do you think it could begin? In 2O12 ?

  2. Wow! I used to work in Littleton, MA and I’ve been to both of the town’s post offices. I wonder if the show will take place in Massachusetts, in a fictional town, of course.

  3. Glad to see more things on the horizon for Steve, post-Office. (Ha! “Nailed the joke.”)

  4. Zap2It is reporting that the tentative title of the show is “The Post Graduate Years”. I was really hoping for “Post Office”, Cindy.
