All of the worst shows–rolled into one
7 October 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, pertaining to the comment suggesting that all negative comments should be disregarded, I don't think the visitors to this website need to be told what they can and cannot read.

Second of all, this show reeked of cheap humor, one-liners, and funny hair styles (all of which had been done before, too many times)

Third, I don't think CBS needed another show filled with old jokes that should've been retired long ago. Still Standing fits that profile just fine.

The last thing I want to say is that this show was WORSE than Still Standing, which is pretty awful in and of itself.

My Rating: 0/10 (AWFUL)
