"Jim and Derrick": Tim and Eric "take a night off" from The Awesome Show to bring you this very special NEW show: a wonderful spoof of themselves that lampoons the music skills of DJ Dougpound (Doug ...
An all-cynical, all-evil absurdist variety show that parodies the classic educational PBS shows of the 1970s, made up of old cartoons and educational films, children, and puppets from one's worst nightmares.
MTV was one of the few networks to pick-up Awesome Show. Tim and Eric declined due to MTV's decision to take the show in a pop culture-oriented route. See more »

You have smelly body parts? Smelly under your arms? In the armpits? Just... just put some vinegar on it! Why didn't you think of that?

The clip at the end of the show's credit sequence is from a 1991 Heidecker family vacation where Tim's father was asked to sum up the vacation in two words. He looked at the camera and said, "Abso-Lutely". See more »
I am truly flabbergasted at how high the ratings are.
I know, a lot of people writing these reviews believe the people who don't like this just don't get it. That may be true.
I don't get it.
I mean it. I don't. And I don't think I should have to try THIS hard to understand humor. I don't mind being offended at all if it also means I get to laugh. And I can even stand a decent amount of butt and/or balls jokes, IF they're funny.
This show has all the offensiveness, all the stupidity, all the ridiculousness, and none of the humor. I have never even broken a little smile. I truly don't get it. I've tried a few times, and I don't have time to try this hard to like something.
Gay jokes, body-part jokes, whatever, fine. Just, can they include a FUNNY joke of some kind? They are going for humor, right? I assume? Maybe that's the problem.
I love Adult Swim. I've been with them since the beginning - with the actual pool bumps - what is that, pimento cheese? Is that pimento cheese? Nope - it's Tim and Eric cheese. And it's not as funny as it sounds.
