Without a Doubt One of the Worst Television Shows I Have Ever Encountered...
"The Downer Channel" features an unfunny cast, unfunny skits, and bears absolutely no direction. At times we are thrown unrecognizable "skits," dare I say, that have no significance to the other skits.
Steve Martin co-produced this show, which made me think it would be hilarious...wrong!
