    Premiere was this weekend. Very different look / style to this show.

    the look was great. The writing was horrible.

    It had some clever moments but I think it just tried way, way too hard. "I need a catchphrase!" would've been mildly funny if it had just been said during the introduction...but when it actually proved to be his catchphrase it just didn't work.

    The first two episodes were kind of a mix.. but I admit, the third episode (you can watch on Hulu) is pretty funny. The entire bit about Worlds Greatest Teacher was a riot.

    For the four people in the world (besides me) who actually watched this, it looks like it's not dead yet. FOX has announced plans to burn off the unaired episodes in the fall - Saturday nights at midnight, beginning 9/12.

    Wow, if it's buried on Saturdays at midnight it sort of is dead. I'll admit to having DVR'd all the episodes (4 I think), but haven't actually watched them.

    Obviously it's dead. It was dead when it was getting 2 million viewers or whatever it was when it was on. My "it's not dead yet" comment meant they're actually going to air (at least some of) the unaired episodes. I did not expect that at all.

    At least the show made it's opening jab at the new timeslot. Caught on DVR. It's such a weird/strange program, it's no wonder it didn't succeed.. but I still laughed :)

    The last few have been surprisingly off-ball funny. The most recent "Math Lab" (which turned into a school run methlab) played off all the zany nature I expected. This is a show that would be much more fit for Adult Swim. But midnights on Saturday it is.
