Maybe I'm suffering the effects of getting 2 hours of sleep but this looks funny to me.

I just watched the 1st episode and I really enjoyed it. The 2 leads have great chemistry. I thought the bit at the end with his sister was hilarious.

I've loved Sam from Veep, so was well up for this, and I'm not disappointed at all! It's excellent stuff. the gigolo ep was brilliant

I thought the pilot was kind of meh, but the 2nd and 3rd episodes were great -- the prostitute episode in particular was hilarious. Loved Tim's awkward effort at roleplaying with his wife and his attempts at being Sam's wingman at the end killed me.

This has quickly become my favorite live action comedy on TV. Last ep was great.

Love this show... it's right up there with Last Man on Earth to me. Same quirky, odd humor.

Re: Detroiters (Comedy Central) - from EPs Lorne Michaels, Jason Sudeikis

This show is hilarious!

This is a serious Detroit show. I mean it isn't a show with one still shot of a local landmark, they are up in here. The bar they go to is in one the sketchiest parts of Detroit I know of, obviously it's just the outside of the building they're using, but it tripped me out because that bar is located next to the dry cleaners my grandmother owned back in the day.

Re: Detroiters (Comedy Central) - from EPs Lorne Michaels, Jason Sudeikis

Guess I'm the only one who cares.

This show is knocking it out of the park.

So crazy.

Tim's dad showed up tonight, jeez how big is Big Hank.

Oh man was that the Fat Boys appearing as the orderlies?
I know one of them is dead but apparently they have a new Fat Boy.

Mort Crim is the news anchor, that is really him.

People from Detroit and Philadelphia will know who he is.

He was Jessica Savitch's partner in Phila on KYW.
Also known as one of the inspirations for Ron Burgandy.

I think the look was inspired by this guy.




This show is surreal.



Oh I think that Big Hank was Kevin Nash aka Triple H

Yup, another great episode. I was dying at them pitching the husky boys in the beginning. "Even the hands?!"

My wife is from Detroit and gets a big kick out of seeing Mort Crim actually on the show every week.

"Husky Boys...we're going to hide the way you look."

They play this commercial a lot on my local news channel. The jingle is so terrible but still catchy. Makes me think of Deeeeeveraux!

I love this show - the last few have been incredible. "To mouths and buttholes - may they never meet"
