It’s comedy nerd xmas, season premiere week on the fun box. Of course there’s tons of crap that makes me question how dumb our society can get, but if you look closely, you can find some good stuff mixed in, like sparkling tinsel in a puppy’s Christmas poo.
Arrested Development and The U.S. Office picked up right where they left off. If you’re not watching either, you’re killing them, and poor Uncle Oscar. I’ve only seen the pilots, but so far My Name Is Earl and Kitchen Confidential show a lot of promise. None of these shows have laugh tracks, so I only recommend them to those people who are already aware of what they find funny.
There’s other good stuff too, but these are the best ones that are in danger of getting cut because the audience they’re aimed at won’t put down the brie for thirty minutes to watch TV like the plebes.
