    I know this isn't the type of show that calls to most of us here, but I accidentally caught this on Nick one night hoping to catch a rerun of Home Improvement and had to say vent...

    If you haven't seen it yet, thank your lucky stars. It's beyond horrible. This is the kind of crap that makes Robot Chicken look like Monty Python in comparison (and I hate Robot Chicken). A by-the-numbers animated sitcom? Good job there, Nick. Oh, and it must know its jokes are stale because it has a laugh track.

    You heard me.

    A laugh track.

    Did I mention that the executive producer is ex Disney CEO Michael Eisner?

    How the mighty have fallen.

    I only watched a little of the first episode, and I have to agree with you.

    I don't know whether or not this show had potential, but the laugh track kills it for me.

    A stop-motion show featuring a laugh track created by Mike Eisner?

    Two of these things cannot belong. Then again, clay-mation hasn't been good since Celebrity Deathmatch got canned.

    i watched a few minutes of that show. it would have been funnier if they didnt have a laugh track and if the jokes were funnier.

    Eesh. The one commercial I saw for it made it seem mildly promising. But a LAUGH TRACK?!

    Personally, I like the show. However, laugh tracks ruin everything. I don't even know why they put them in there.

    Definitely more of a PG-13 show, its got a lot of questionable (by that channel's standards at least) stuff in there you WOULDN'T expect from a Nick show from the bits and pieces I've seen waiting for Malcolm in the Middle. Yeah, I know its technically Nick @ Night, but still.

    It's kinda sad. I really like stop-motion style animation, and I cannot watch this show for more than a few minutes because the canned laughter is so @#$%ing annoying.

    If it didn't have that, it might have been a decent show.

    I'd like to know whose decision it was to add it in, and then go kick him in the nards.
