Awful
29 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not exactly sure how I came upon this garbage on a Sunday afternoon, but this show is an absolute train wreck. I feel guilty for leaving it on, for fear of raising the number of viewers by one. Complete juvenile "comedy", canned laughter, down right terrible. And as usual with all the black comedies these days, all the non-blacks on the show are portrayed as complete idiots. If the opposite were to happen, it would start a race riot. But that's a whole different topic. The fact remains, this show lasting two seasons according to IMDb proves that there are just too many channels with time to fill, no matter how bad the programming.
