    So, I know some of you caught this tonight. What'd everyone think? Personally, this show had me rolling on the ground. The puppies, the boss, everything. The sarcastic wit of this show is just great (it reminds me of myself). I was really getting into Undeclared, but if andy Richter continues like this Undeclared will soon be out of my head (though Undeclared at 8 followed by Andy would be the best). Loved tonights episode and if the show holds up I may have to TiVo Buffy every tuesday...

    I've got more to say, but 24 is calling my name...

    I think it shows a lot of potential. The basic idea of seeing his thoughts isn't /new/ but the structure & the style of the humour looks like it'll work. I enjoyed it.

    I liked it too...I look forward to more episodes (as long as it doesn't permenantly replace Undeclared).

    We only saw the last half of the show, but loved every minute of it. Heck, if Buffy is in reruns for a month, we'll we be watching. Now that I think about it, the current state that Buffy is in, we'll probably be watching even after the vampire slayer comes back with new episodes.

    Man, I was so worried the show wouldn't be any good. Andy Richter is like one of my heros and that kind of dissappointement wouldn't have ended well. But the show is fantastic.

    cue goat. LOL!

    Things won't be pretty when Buffy comes out of reruns.

    Laugh-out-loud funny!

    I usually don't watch TV this early in the night, I'll have to start taping this one!

    It's not a show that I'll go out of my way to watch, but I have to admit that when he put the garbage can over Byron's head and started hitting it with his phone, I was rolling on the floor laughing. (Maybe I just wish I could do that to a co-worker...)

    I thought it was hilarious. The spoiler I read about the third episode sounds like one of the most subversively lunatic plots since Seinfeld went off of the air, so it looks to be a promising show. The sarcastic wit reminded me of myself except, of course, that it was funny.

    Regards,

    I missed it! I loved Richter on Conan, and hope this new show is a huge success. I'll have to catch it next week.

    I missed it too! But it looks like Fox is going to re-run the pilot episode Thursday night (3/21). Yay!

    It's halfway decent, and fairly inoffensive considering some of the subject matter (which was cleaned up a bit).

    It has potential so that means it has no place on Fox. Watch for the cancellation soon. Fox is an anathama. How can the same "network" that runs shows like this, Undeclared and Family Guy also run Celebrity Boxing and Temptation Island?

    Gotta love that Rupert. Lol.

    Finally watched it, and I finally busted out LOL when he threw his draftman officemate into the coffee table. Will watch more "Andy". His boss was hot as well! Mmmm...

    OK, I just got done watching the third episode of Andy Richter Controls the Universe and it's official - I really like this show! It's like a more clever version of The Drew Carey Show. [​IMG]
    Plus the women are all beautiful. [​IMG]

    I'd use "zany" to describe this show. Poor Andy, gets the girl of his dreams and she's got race issues. [​IMG] The whole Jessica/Wendy bit was pretty funny. Another entertaining half hour from Andy and company.

    I loved the bit at the Jewish community center where the director tells Andy that they help "all" people, and Andy emphasizes that he is only interested in helping the Jewish people.
