Your TV's on and off relationship!
13 July 2002 | by (Your Critic of Critics) – See all my reviews

I like to describe this show like a on and off relationship because one year this show is funny and the next it sucks and it's like that year after year. Still it always manages to make you laugh and it has been the breakthrough show for some of the greatest comedians of all-time.
