The show about nothing that went nowhere.
29 June 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show has no script and no premise; that's how Gary Busey himself described it an ABC interview. An unconventional idea like this certainly held promise for Comedy Central; after all, Jerry Seinfeld made a show about nothing, and it turned out fine--some would even say brilliant.

Unfortunately, "I'm with Busey" is no "Seinfeld." "Seinfeld" had character depth and development, interesting storylines, and genuine humor--all of which "I'm with Busey" lack.

In fact, the only show that "I'm with Busey" is comparable to is "Blind Date." In both series, two total strangers are paired up to enjoy several activities together in front of a camera. "Busey" only differs from "Blind Date" in that we aren't given funny comments to read along the way, and the "date" isn't ended in fifteen minutes. No, De La Pena's "date" with Busey lasts an entire series, making for the most boring show humanly possible. To make matters worse (!), neither De La Pena nor Busey are funny--at all. Both of them will typically act stupid throughout the course of an episode, and we're supposed to interpret their nonsensicality as comedic brilliance. (For example, Busey, in one episode, jokes about roasting donuts. I'm sorry, but this isn't funny. It's stupid.)

Even that god-awful "Porn 'n' Chicken" movie was better than this. This is the single worst program Comedy Central has ever created.
