A "cute" show. It's got "CANCELLATION" written all over it. Six weeks and out?
Six weeks? Did you watch the show? If this show goes past 2 shows I will be AMAZED. I've never seen a show I thought would find NO audience, UNTIL this one. Even leap of faith was going to pull in the women and feminine men audience. Who will watch this show? The same people that did(nt) watch the Tick live action, and family guy I imagine. Who GREENLIGHTS these shows at Fox?
Hey now, don't be makin' fun of Family Guy....
It's what The Simpsons *used* to be back when it was funny.
Believe it or not, I found the show to be quite entertaining - at least more entertaining than most of the programming on other networks. I believe it was up against West Wing [NBC], Amazing Race [CBS] and Wednesday 9:30 (8:30 Central) [ABC]. Eugene Levy has always been a favorite of mine since SCTV and Seth Green usually turns out to be an unexpected highlight (re: Buffy ). The show moved at a moderate pace for the first half but turned on the comedy, wacky-style, in the second half. Sure, it's a puppet show but it's different and entertaining. I'm going to hold off final judgement until I see a few more shows but so far, so good.
I thought it was pretty funny, somewhat to my surprise. Not sure that the prospects of this lasting long are very good but you never know.
With the cast that they've got, I expect the show to get better. If they let Eugene Levy, Jeffrey Ross, and Sarah Silverman write their own material this show could be hilarious. Of course they'd have to move it to cable because of the "adult content". I think Showtime used to have a show called Twisted Puppet Theater about seven years ago. My favorite skit was the when they revealed that puppets fart when they get angry - after which they repeatedly did things to anger one very edgy puppet. Juvenile, yes - but still funny.
I'm surprised to find so many bashing posts. I watched it and thought it was hilarious. However, as we all know, humor is subjective. Greg makes me laugh more than any traditional network sitcom. I hope it goes for a while.
Last nights show was a total loser to me. I was hoping for hilarity at its best. And with the cast, who could have expected less. Lets just hope that this episode was setting things up. I am going to tune in next week hoping for more laughs.
I thought it was ok but I was on the phone for half the episode so.... That muppet with the little hat that read with Greg cracked me up.
I do not see how this show will last though, it seems that the novelty will wear out soon.
I will continue to watch the show just so I can see Sarah Silverman, I am smittin by her.
Check out Godfather 2000.
I haven't downloaded any of these yet. Are these clips of upcoming shows, or are they produced just for the internet? I didn't think "Greg" existed before his sitcom...
These are the original "Greg the Bunny" shorts.
I thought it was great
I'll be suprised if it makes it through sweeps

So has Seth Green jumped the shark?
I thought the first episode was certainly entertaining enough to watch, although nothing fantastic. I'm a big fan of the entire cast (particularly Green and Silverman), and I generally enjoy juvenile humor.
Hopefully the next few episodes will settle into a groove. It doesn't really matter, because Greg the Bunny will inevitably be canceled before too long.
Haven't seen it yet, but from the previews, it looked like a rip off of "When Puppets Kill". Is it?
