I personally think it is one of the funniest shows on Comedy Central. I could do without Victoria Jackson though. I saw her a few months ago at a local comedy club and her opening act was better than she was.

It has it's moments. I agree Victoria Jackson is not the greatest actress, but I've met her in person and believe it or not, the "dumb" act appears to be for real. She's incredibly sweet though...

A guy I know was in it (Barry - Chris Wylde). He was the the only redeeming feature for me.

It's been canned, FYI.

I thought it needed more breasts.

Victoria Jackson is not even remotely funny... i always thought she dragged down SNL. To make it worse, she's fat now too.

Lets review... she's fat, she's not funny... hmm... sounds like Rosie O'Donnell.

When did Victoria Jackson get fat? You sure you're not thinking of the main woman in the show? Julie Brown? Now she's annoying. Watched this show once or twice and came to the opinion that it could very well be the worst thing on Comedy Central, with the possible exception of all the showings of Love Potion #9 and such.

I had no idea, I have been waiting for the new episodes. And I really like Heda.

You could can it, and I wouldn't miss it.

I thought it was in poor taste but came to really enjoy it. The second season episodes were great.

Comedy Central is now repeating the first season. I missed most of the earlier shows and I'm glad to have a second look. Last I heard, they don't know if there will be any new episodes.

Trust me - there will be no noew episodes. The series has been canned.

That being said, the guy who plays Barry, Chris Wylde, will have his own show starting in August called "Midnight."
