This show was scheduled to premiere in 2003 as a mid-season replacement. But NBC cancelled the show before it even aired. Seven episodes were produced but the did not air until 2006 on NBC's Bravo Network. See more »
I thank Bravo from the bottom of my heart for bringing back "the Jake Effect" one of the single greatest sitcoms of all time. I find Kyle Gass' performances consistently hilarious and I don't see how the critically acclaimed series was ever cancelled. Jason Bateman is a gift to the television screen and the dialogue in the series is no less than brilliant. I hate to compare this television show to the would be illustrious career of Tenacious D, but I can not help see the similarities between Kyle's character and he playing himself in all the great Tenacious D appearances. These include but and not contained to: "Tenacious D The Complete Masterworks" and such films as "Saving Silverman" in which Kyle gave an under-appreciated, yet duly noted performance as the magically inclined single man on a quest for the hand of the always lovely Amanda Peete.
