Seth Green's UN-BROKE

Fo' REAL, yo!

I'm not ENTIRELY sure what to make of this, some of it is very funny, some of it is flat-out stupid. Are they serious about trying to help teach people good money habits? This clip would not lead you to believe that necessarily, but the WalletPop article sounds promising:
Green and the rest of his cast are here to help. "The whole goal of the show is to offer kids financial education, without something stale or boring, but super-informative about the basics," he says. In Unbroke, he goes off on the importance of a healthy mortgage. Samuel L. Jackson plays the bestselling author of Broke as Hell and Not Going to Take it Anymore. Will Smith takes on a boardroom of corporate-finance executives (which should be cathartic for all of us). Among other stars demystifying personal finance: Cedric the Entertainer, Christian Slater, Rosario Dawson, and -- in the program's showstopper -- the Jonas Brothers, who teach the secrets of stock-trading to an audience of screaming girls.

It kicks off tonight on ABC, and I think I'll check it out.

OK, so I never did check this out, by the way. Anyone else?
