    The show is premiering on Adult Swim, February 11th. Its a sketch comedy show done by the guys that brought us Tom Goes To The Mayor. I'm pretty excited about it as I'm a big fan of their work. Plus Bob Odenkirk is involved, as he was with TGTTM, so I'm sure it'll be great and somewhat reminiscent of some old Mr.Show. Oh, and I can't wait for the special guests as they are pretty good at getting some big comedians involved in their work.

    I never got the appeal to that Mayor show. It was such a mundane show with a few outlandish things going on. You certainly weren't gonna watch it for the animation but where was the comedy? I like dry humor, I like British humor, I like subtle humor but this show felt very schlocky and with a style of humor that you'd only like if you grew up with the show's creators. Its like a boring version of Sienfeld without any interesting characters and flat comedy. I don't know... I love Adult Swim but I just don't get some of shows they put on. Or better yet, why they allow them to continue.

    For me, its all about Moral Oral and Venture Brothers. Metalcalypse is decent too and so is that barbarian show.

    I almost can't stand ATHF or Sealab (yeah, I know its sacriligious to say that but eh.)

    Sorry, but it looks like shit to me. Of all the new shows I've seen solicited, the only one I have any hope for at all is Saul of the Molemen.

    Looks marginally entertaining. I saw some of the youtube promo clips for it. I didn't really crack any sort of smile.

    Those guys can be funny. I thought their Christmas commercial bits were hilarious.

    Tom Goes to the Mayor was hit and miss.

    Second season was when TGTTM got to be consistently funny.

    And the original promo I thought was hilarious. :lol

    At least this loks better than thsoe Moleman Promos, but still don't think this should last more than a season or less. That Barbarian show they have aired a few times deserve its own slot over either of these shows now.

    I saw Weird Al on the commercial, so that's a good sign.

    I'm in!

    I assume it's live action though, and that bugs me if it's going to be on CN, but whatevars.

    Or am I assuming wrong?

    If Bob Odenkirk is involved I’m there.

    And I liked Tom Goes to the Mayor.
