I started watching this show cause I like Joel from The Soup. And how bad can it be, it has Chevy Chase in it. Its not too bad. From what i see, its 30 min with a couple of chuckles and then there is usually a real big LOL moment somewhere between. So far so good

why is it all the good shows go away. I loved Tosh.0, and that got cancelled. I loved Demetri Martin, and his show got cancelled. I guess my keen sence of humor is different then most that watch.

I think it will have a good run. Chevy Chase wouldnt sign on to a TV show if he didnt think it was going to do good. its not going to go as long as say..the Office or Friends for that matter, but a couple of years is my prediction

Chevy Chase is one of the more mentally unstable beings on the planet. He is a hero of mine, but I don't trust his judgment at all.

Oh, hi Miz! You still owe me an ice cream. ;)

i gotta go with GAK on this one...Chase is an odd, odd man who has made some very questionable decisions in his career (Vegas Vacation and The Chevy Chase Show to name 2)

I didn't love the pilot, but didn't hate it. I snickered a few times. The second episode I genuinely laughed at a few times. Joel really carries the show, if it was a common man character actor in his role I think the show would be in trouble, however the dynamic they have going there makes me think it will form a cult following, have hilarious moments and get canceled far too early (Arrested Development).
:(



I still have no idea what's going on....

I watched both episodes on HULU and was pretty impressed. The spanish teacher killed me. I loved his monologue.

Personally I laughed out loud only once with each episode. There were a few snickers, but nothing more. Sheldon on Big Bang Theory is sooooo much better than Arvid.

Arvid was one of the nerds on Head of the Class...wrong school based comedy.....and wrong decade :)

I didn't think this was good at all. I maybe laughed at McHale once in the episode I saw, but other than that, not funny. And EJ, my roommates and I have the entire series of Arrested on DVD and we watch them all the time. One of the most underrated shows ever.

Agreed. The scene where Troy goes down to get the pizza and all hell breaks loose was one of the funniest things I've seen on TV in awhile.

I recently read where this was a false rumor. The theory is NBC needs at least four seasons in order to get the show in syndication where the big bucks are.
