Without a Doubt One of the Worst Television Shows I Have Ever Encountered...
6 December 2002 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

"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!

"The Downer Channel" proves that trying to cash in on the fabled success of "Saturday Night Live" is not at easy task.

1/5 stars --
