Cancelled in 3 weeks!
12 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That's my prediction! I can't even finish watching it. So unfunny, that they had to use a laugh track over the studio audience! Seriously, you can see people sitting there perfectly still, and unimpressed, while it sounds like the audience is breaking out in riotous laughter. Unbelievable. Just another example of Comedy Central thinking it has some great newsy show that people will look to for some sort of legitimate opinions. Instead it's just perpetually unemployed angry comedians. It's just a tired concept... "Let's complain about people and religion, they're so controlling and they think they're better than us!" Get over it.
