The promos looked so terrible, I skipped it. It got ten million viewers, which isn't bad. I was more interested in Chaos, but missed it, can't get it to play on CBS.com, and the ratings were so bad that I don't even know if they'll air any additional episodes.

I thought it was hilarious. The whole cast sparks off one another really well. Loved Michael Rosenbaum as the psycho boyfriend. Even Slater was funny. If they dump "Traffic Light" and pair this with "Raising Hope", we'd be looking at a great hour of television.

The prankster pushed it too far and got under my skin. I was hoping that upon seeing his car upside down the newbie would go into full Kill Bill mode.

It's definitely absurdist humor. Every character except Bret Harrison's is a border-line psychopath.

I wonder how long they'll be able to keep revealing effed up details about Oz's personal life.

Loved it. Shows that have one man character that is pretty normal surrounded by crazy works for me. The pilot is free on iTunes.

Why is no one talking more about this show?? It's a freakin' riot lol.


I admit I didn't care for the pilot but each episode is getting better, and funnier, than the last and last nights was just a scream, especially Michael Rosenbaum, I've been waiting for someone to give him a comedy role because just from his commentary tracks on the Smallville DVD's I could tell he could be extremely funny.


I come from the 80's so I catch all the little pop culture references the show throws out there and they come fast and furious at times lol.


With Oz I think they should make it a running gag on the show that each season reveals something even more terrible than the last about his past lol.

Right now they're on pace where each episode reveals something more terrible (or at least more sketchy) about Oz. He's got a soft spot for Melanie and Cameron, but he's generally a total monster, albeit one who's trying to use his evil toward honest means. Probably the best role I've ever seen Christian Slater in.

Harrison and Slater anchor the show, which is how it should be, but Rosenbaum is a scream as Dutch. I was dying when he pulled up in the Prius in which he'd replaced the hybrid engine was a gas-guzzling hemi. And of course his transformation into Sloth. It's a shame that it only got a 7 episode order for this season. I hope it comes back in the fall. It'd make a nice hour block with "Raising Hope" on Tuesdays.

I think it's a pretty funny show, I hope it sticks around.  Also, I was completely oblivious to the build up of the Sloth joke after Dutch got the swelling from the peanuts; my wife was like "I saw that coming".  I just laughed at the Superman shirt b/c he was on Smallville.


Gary Goonie......lmao.


I have seen Larry David in action, and that man is an animal, and he has to be stopped.

I like it when Slater said "We have a broken Arrow."

Fox and Sony Television extend options on "Breaking In" cast until November 15.

Do you believe in miracles? Yes! Fox Gives Surprise Second Season 13-Episode Order to Breaking In Odette Annable's shooting schedule for "House" was already designed to accommodate a potential "Breaking In" renewal. She'll be a series regular on both shows. This was one of my surprise favorites from last season. Very high laughs per minute ratio compared to other comedies, an a terrific ensemble cast.

"Breaking In" returns for its second season on March 6th. Unfortunately, they've inexplicably dumped Michael Rosenbaum and added Megan Mullally. Why Fox decided to get rid of the show's breakout character is completely beyond me.

Good news. I liked this show. I didn't even realize it was coming back until I saw them shooting in the hallway of the office where I work.

I was surprised by this week's Indiana Jones episode guest starring Indiana Jones himself. I didn't even recognize him until I saw his name in the credits. This show has some Community-style weirdness going for it.

I'm still enjoying it too. The British blonde works better paired with Cash than she did as a forced replacement for Melanie with Cameron. Megan Mullally's character still isn't working for me, though, and I do wish they would go on missions again.

I keep forgetting when it's on -- thankfully the PVR series recording hasn't forgotten it yet! Not sure if I like this season as much as last, though the opening credits are fantastic. I did prefer last season's full theme song.

This has now been pulled from the schedule. Any remaining episodes will be burned off in the summer.
