I REALLY liked last week's pilot, but thought it may just have been because it was written by Conan O'Brien, so I decided to hold off a week and see if things stayed at the same level. I liked tonight, too! Tony Hale is awesome once again, and what can't you say about Andy Richter except I hope he's FINALLY on a show that goes the distance. Not that I was ever rooting for "Quints," mind you. Because I wasn't. But I'm rooting for this one! Go watch the as-yet-unaired episodes on nbc.com right now like Feely already has! I'm going wait for them to actually air but I'm CRAZY!

Was that a Buffy shoutout by Jane Espenson (co-writer) referencing Doublemeat (Palace)?

I've been disappointed that 30 Rock has been removed from the schedule, but Andy Barker has been more than a suitable replacement. I'll admit that its early to make the call, but with luck, both shows will make the schedule next year.

Its strange to see Tony Hale with both hands again. His attempts to woo Nicole were amusing, but I think black-white cookies are always funny.

I figured it was the caddy well before the big twist reveal, but even so, the show was still amusing. This isn't CSI or any other crime drama and doesn't need insane-twists to be amusing.





You believe me, don't you?

I've really been enjoying this show as well. I think this one will finally go the distance for Andy. It's being aired on NBC, and it's created and produced by Conan O'Brian, Richter's good friend and the next host of the Tonight Show. Plus, NBC has always been more supportive of its shows than Fox.

I really dig this show too. As one of the few who does not like 30 Rock, I am glad to finally have something to watch at 9:30. Plus I've always liked Richter and have been hoping he'd get a show that stuck. I hope this is it.

I like this show so far too, but definitely not as much as 30 Rock. NBC Thursday nights are great as they are. If they HAD to move out a Thursday show for Richter, I'd rather it be Earl.

It's been good, but not great, not yet at least. I really think they're just touching the tip of the iceberg with a lot of the content, namely the running gag of Andy thinking everybody he encounters is crazy for playing up to an old noir cliche.

I think once they hit the groove it'll be some of the funniest stuff I've ever seen. Wow, optimism, from me.

I like Andy Barker so far. I haven't laughed out loud much but a few giggles here and there. I especially like Tony Hale's character. In the episode where Tony Hale and the other guy beat up Andy's father-in-law Tony dancing around and not actually fighting reminded me of the episode of Arrested Development when Buster wanted Gob or Michael to punch him so he joined their fight.

At this point I'd rather it be Scrubs which is now pretty shitty. I think Office and 30 Rock are sublime, Earl is adequate, and Andy Barker hasn't been hilarious but there's a promising groundwork.

Funniest line I've heard in a while "So long sweetheart . . . somewhere in hell somebody's puttin' the wood to a quality broad."

Fun show!

I just watched the first 6 episodes online. Really a lot of fun. Richter as an accountant who Mr. Magoo's (or is Forrest Gump's?) his way through solving mysteries is really amusing. All the secondary characters are funny as well. Lew Staziak, the tough as nails P.I., Simon as the rental store owner (and sidekick), and Wally the Afghani who runs a restaurant with a patriotic theme. I really enjoyed the last two episodes (aka the ones that haven't aired yet).

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
"The Lady Varnishes" had some innuendo that I found especially amusing, and "The Big No Sleep" has a great Bond villain type who insists on explaining why he's doing what he's doing, even though Andy doesn't really care.

I preferred "Andy Richter Controls the Universe", but this show definitely has some potential ...

Bad news for Barker- the remaining two episodes will be seen (not by very many people) on Saturday night. This is due to the low ratings it has received on Thursdays.

This Variety article seems to say the show's done, but doesn't have any more specific to say besides the move.

Easy now. He said he couldn't recall the name of the actress. He didn't say he didn't know who she is. Oh, and for the record, I didn't know who it was. I had to look it up.
