The Mullets - 09/11/03

I've been watching television all of my life, and I have never felt so violated from watching a show. This was the single worst sitcom that has ever aired. I'm not exaggerating, it was stupid and obnoxious and insulting and arrogant and unfunny and [insert negative adjective here].
The people responsible for this should not only be banned from the business, they should all go to jail. I won't even sleep tonight because of this.

Honk!

I gave the show a chance, but it had that annoying laugh track every five seconds. I hate when shows do that. When there's more canned laughter than dialogue it's usually a sign that the show is going to completely suck.

I tuned out after the credits.

The previous thread about the show I had went over so well, that you guys talked me out of even watching it...

You know how I watch every premiere on the off chance it might be the next great thing? Yeah, even I knew not to watch this one.

I watched the very beginning, but there was absolutely nothing funny about how it began. I turned it off after the one moron fell through the roof. Blech!! Thankfully, I watched Steve Harvey's Big Time and that took the bad taste out of my mouth. That show was pretty funny!

Ugh. I was switching back and forth between this and base ball and it was arguably one of the worst, most unfunny things I've seen on television.

That one dude better hope Joe Schmo opens some doors for him 'cause he'll need something after this is quickly cancelled.

I planned on wathing this, but mixed up its time slot (I thought it was on at 9:30). Somebody up there must have been giving me a sign.

This can not be worse than the abortion Fox aired last season, was it the Feebles or some such crap. Or is it?

Thank you, the Pitts is what I was thinking of.
Can the Mullets be worse than the Pitts?

The Mullets is nowhere near as awful as The Pitts!

I mean c'mon, The Pitts ended up being the show that knocked Andy Richter Controls The Universe off the air. That's right, FOX thought their audience would prefer The Pitts to Andy. Now that...is awful!

The Mullets wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be. I only watched it because I usually watch UPN on Thursday anyway, but I've seen worse than The Mullets.

The laugh track was awful no doubt, and many of the jokes fell completely flat. But I wasn't bored with it at least, if for no other reason that I've known guys like The Mullets.

I doubt I'll be watching it on a regular basis, as it's still pretty crappy, but I've seen far worse...like The Pitts.

Glad I missed it. I too thought of the Pitts while watching the commercials.
