No. But with the amount of hype given to it by the BBC this falls WAY short of what is expected. I watched the first episode and gave it a second chance this week, out of hope more than expectation. I won't be watching next week.
Lazy homophobia, fat jokes, lack of gags, Horne is utterly charmless. The Gervais sketch was appropriate given that Horne is attempting to become a Gervais/Pegg facsimile himself.
I'd go as far as to say this program is the nadir of the British sketch show. Hopefully it'll act as a ground zero for genuine talent - not 'rising stars' who are given a vehicle and carte blanche and produce such depressing rubbish.
Did you catch the first two episodes of Horne & Corden? I did. FML.
