    Anybody else seen this? It's a fake debate show from Matt Besser of the Upright Citizens Brigade. It started Tuesday and airs Tuesday through Thursday at 7:30 and 11:30. I thought the first two episodes were pretty damn funny. Besser is great as the 'expert' with the sexist, racist and downright ignorant opinions who opposes the person who actually knows what they're talking about. Andrew Daly of madtv was hillarious on Tuesdays show as a guy who's dream it was to get punk'd on a hidden camera show and brought along footage of him being suprised.

    I saw the first two episodes and got some laughs out of it. I was hoping they'd show a reveal at the end of the show so we could see the person's reaction to being punk'd.

    I watched a replay last night (the safe driving episode), and was expecting a reveal at the end. But, it looked like after they brought out the fake elderly guy, the guests seemed to have an idea what was going on.

    "It's the only way we can kill", I was on the floor with that one.

    I didn't get much out of the first two, but tonight's one on drugs was especially funny.

    On another note, what's the future of Tough Crowd?

    They probably aren't revealing in order to keep the show secret longer. Otherwise, the experts would tell all their friends.

    I think they do reveal it to the guests, but they're just not showing it on TV. Either way, I'd like to see the reveals.

    This show is hilarious.
