Ok, who's gonna watch "I'm With Busey"?

I've been seeing the promos for this Gary Busey reality show on Comedy Central and it looks hilarious. I recently saw Gary Busey on Howard Stern's show and he is insane. I can't imagine it to be an act at all. Pure 100% USDA Choice crazy.

It looks awsome. That guy is nuts. I break out with laughter when they show the promo where Busey is walking and he runs into that stop sign. Ha ha...

this does have a train wreck kind of appeal....i'll invariably watch it if I happen to be around....i'm not gonna set the vcr or anything though.

Now, if they want to start the Anna Nicole Busey show....then maybe i'd be a bit more interested....

seems like Gary is like a wild animal and Adam is his trainer, or like Gary is a hyper 7 year old and Adam is his baby sitter, just saw them on Jimmy Kimmel show and Adam is always telling him to calm down, sit down, don't yell, ect pretty funny actually

Busey is still having side affects from all that "coke" he took in the 80's & 90's..

Let's see...Ozzy...Anna Nicole...and now Busey.

What other near-idiot, brain-damaged, drug-addicted, rambling, shuffling wreck can we parade out on television for some laughs?
Busey needs rehab and therapy, not an adoring audience chuckling at his deranged antics.

Honk!

Anyone here in LA see the commerical for this Brentwood clothing store? They have Busey giving a little spiel with the model/host. She looks terrified of the man, it's hilarious.

I never watch TV except for sports. But I'm so there for this show. Busey absolutely rules. Look at when he was Howard Stern for an indication of what he will be like on the show. He got up in the middle of the interview & just started wrestling Howard, & I think he scared the hell out of him also. Makes me think, if this show is a hit, how pissed Howard will be again. And I think Busy is a born again Christian.

Yeah, the producer on one of the commentary tracks of Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas talks about how he was wearing a WWJD bracelet on the set and was talking to her about what it meant. She then makes a remark about how ironic it is.

When Adam talked about be stranded on a desert island with Busey and killing himself before Busey raped him I was dying.

This show was great.

I'm from Busey's hometown and I met him once. He's a nutjob.

This show proves it.

I liked the show, but I didn't like how you couldn't tell how much was put-on and how much was actual. In the cutaways they try to tell some kind of story "Busey teaching about women, Busey teaching about warfare", etc., but they should forget any attempt at narration and just show Busey being insane.

Gotta let it pee, let the oyster pee.

Folks really get hung up on the "reality" of reality TV. Personally, I couldn't care less. It's hilariously entertaining in either case.

I dug the narration stuff. Goes with the "I'm with Busey" premise and sets it apart stylistically from something like The Osbournes.

Wonder how they got away with Busey only wearling goggles for the paintball spot? Even the Jackass crew wore full masks.

I think the best was when he gave Adam the spear and they went at it in his house.
