Sorry this has been bothering me and I have to vent...
OK, now this show caught my attention because it's constantly advertised on the VERY few shows I watch on SPIKE. Being a 29 year old male I am their demographic group right? The fact the only shows on SPIKE I watch are ones that are produced in Japan with american commentary, old Star Trek TNGN/DS9, and wrestling somethings wrong SPIKE. And goodluck after you lose WWE in the fall. Pinheads!
Anyway, I myself in no way find any intrested in this show. Does anyone? Before it aired I never thought the concept or this guy was funny. The commercials aren't funny they are annoying. I find myself purposely changing the channel so I don't have to watch them anymore. I gave the show the benifit of the doubt and did watch a few minutes of the show and not surprisingly it wasn't funny in the least.
Who the 'F' is Lance Krall? Being the gay guy on 'The Joe Schmo' show doesn't make you funny, never mind make you an actual comedian. Who at SPIKE thought this guy was the funny, nevermind them thinking he is funny enough to give him his own show? He's got a cool first name though.
A sketch "comedy" show with a 4th-5th rate "comedian" that airs after wrestling at 11-something on Monday nights? I take a que from Miller Lite.. good call!

I gotta agree with you - this show is just plain terrible. I wasted almost a half hour on this and regretted it - and I am easily amused.
I loved the guy on the Joe Schmo show - he was by far one of the best and certainly most memorable characters. But either he had better writing then, or he perhaps is just not talented enough to be funny in a wider range of roles. Or both.
I tend to think he's the kind of guy who's funnier when everyone is drunk.
On a related note - did I see the guy who played Hutch on TJSS hosting some kind of contest/show on the Country Music Channel?
Heh. Especially when the answer of what Mad Men has over its network clones is so obvious: Pan Am and The Playboy Club have very nice costume design, production design, cinematography, and even persuasive CGI to recreate the 1960s.
