In an age where Comedy Central thinks Drawn Together and Mind of Mencia are funny shows, it's good to at least see that this show was picked up. Unfortunately not for too long, though.

Not that the show is GREAT. Lots of jokes bomb, at times the show seems to lean too much on toilet humor and some are just too bizarre, but I laughed out loud quite a bit. Note that the humor in this show is "Take it as you see it"; that is, there's almost no social commentary. That's a big reason I liked this show.

Social commentary can certainly be funny, but after seeing South Park walk down this road long enough to make that show unfunny, it's nice to see a show that's dumbed down and still funny. This being said, much of the shows 'funny' humor comes from dialogue between characters in awkward positions and extreme parodies. The way Larry the Cable Guy is depicted had me rolling.

Overall, the show wasn't THAT good. It's usually lowbrow humor mixed with weird. But give it a chance and it may win you over. Just ignore the overly stupid parts.
