User Reviews

Would of been a lot better off canceled after Adam and Jimmy left
25 July 2006 | by ithrowbedpansSee all my reviews

In 2000 I saw my first episode of the man show with Adam Carrolla and Jimmy Kimmel in season 2 and i loved it and have been watching it ever since. In 2003 Adam and Jimmy left the program (my best guess is they were sick of it and wanted to do other things) and i got a little depressed. Several months later the man show came back on the air with new hosts, new set, and a new opening theme. The first couple of minutes i was like okay, little did i know that Joe Rogan and Doug Stanhope didn't know what the hell they were thinking, they added new additions to the show and most of them were nothing short of ridiculous "The magical Negro" which is a person who helps out Doug and Joe with their problems and sings and dances about the penis, and "Guess who's Ass Crack" which you have to identify a persons ass between a celebrity or a plumber. On top of all of this Joe and Doug decided not to do the man show toast at the end, in fact they thought it was a joke to them when they used it in one of their discussions talking to the audience. In 2004 the rating for "The Man Show went from 2 million viewers to 600,000 viewers in less than a year, thats 70% of the home audience gone! Adam and Jimmy knew what they were doing from day 1 and the series would of turned out great if they would of just left it alone after season 4. So if season 5 and 6 of the man show ever come out on DVD, don't buy it! save your money and save yourself from that horrible torture and just get seasons 1,2,3 and 4 you wont regret it.
