C'mon, I know some of us are going to watch it, as it may be the only episode of the series to air.

Judging by how many people I've talked to who said they feel like they have to see it once, it might do good ratings tonight.

And yes I'm one of them.

Ug. I didn't find anything funny and I actually enjoy the commercials it's based on.

Carpoolers, on the otherhand, was funny from the start. It also helps that it is created by one of the Kids in the Hall and has another one in a cameo.

Gotta disagree with you on this one. I laughed out loud through a good bit of Cavemen. I think it's pretty intelligently written. I went into the show thinking it was gonna be a bunch of gimmicky stuff about cavemen getting adjusted to modern day life but I was pleasantly surprised. Instead it was part cavemen-deal-with-prejudices/stereotypes and part typical-sitcom-stuff-where-the-characters-happen-to-be-cavemen. "eat sushi off yur booty" had me ROLLING.

Carpoolers, on the other hand, is kinda eh, but good enough for me to watch again since it comes on right after Cavemen.

And I'll come in with yet another opinion: I didn't like either, although I at least laughed a few times during Carpoolers.

Cavemen...I dunno. If it wasn't supposed to be a comedy it might be good, but I didn't laugh or chuckle or anything. Not even once. The closest I got was being amused at the behavior of the apartment super. She seems like a character with potential, if I were to watch the show again. But good GOD is she dangerously, sickeningly thin. Her legs looked like raisin skins stretched out over two toothpicks.

This would be my opinion also. Carpoolers had a couple of laughs, but I switched over to The Biggest Loser, so I don't think I will return to Cavemen or Carpoolers. I didn't find either really funny.

Ha! I actually sat through the drivel that was Carpoolers and didn't find any of it funny. I LOVE Bruce McCulloch and still thought this was sheer and utter crap. The two guys in the front seat of the carpool act as if they just got their SAG cards.

I was hoping to catch Cavemen out of morbid curiosity but I didn't get home in time and forgot to TiVo it. Looks like I didn't miss much.

Yeah, it was pretty awful.

Although, I did enjoy annoying my fiancée afterwards by repeating the line "Keep your penis in your genus".

Well, we'll see where it goes, but Cavemen actually tied for 1st in it's timeslot (broadcastingcable.com) with NCIS with a 3.3 rating from 8-8:30.

I flipped over to it because there was nothing else remotely interesting on at 8:00, and it wasn't the nadir of the sitcom genre like many of the critics were making it out to be. It wasn't particularly good, mind you, it just didn't make me want to claw my eyeballs out like some would have you believe.

Good grief, I kinda liked it. I can't believe I'm saying this, but it wasn't all that terrible.

This wasn't the original pilot that was filmed. They replaced one of the cavemen with a different actor and I think they added a female character but I don't know which one.

It's not something I'll watch every week because I love me the NCIS, but I can see watching this if NCIS was a repeat or something. I guess I liked it enough to give it a chance to grow.

God, I feel terrible for saying that. What's wrong with me? (...don't answer that!)

I watched it, and I laughed. Not enough that I would schedule my life (or my DVR) to make sure I never miss, but if it's on and I'm sitting on the couch, I'll probably give it another look.

So..if it does well over the season, does this mean we can expect a "Snickers FEAST" sitcom next year?!

So how pissed IS the Gecko that the cavemen got a show before he did? Will he do a guest spot?

I'm thinking the Sonic guys are ripe for a sitcom. How it will be different from Carpoolers...that I'm not so sure.

I also disliked the show. I only watched up until the one caveman told his 2 buddies about dating a non cave girl while they were playing the Wii. At that commercial I just turned it off. It was boring and slow. Although I really liked Carpool. I thought it would be the other way around when Is started the day.

Cavemen was awful. The ratings will drop next week and show gets canned before Thanksgiving.

One of the caveman should have a pet gecko ... it's only fair.

And count me in as one of the people pleasantly surprised that it wasn't truly horrible - I was suspecting something along the lines of an early 90s sitcom, with the canned laughtrack and everything.

Not sure if I'll ever watch another episode, but at least I didn't feel like I wasted a half hour afterwards.

Now "Carpoolers", THAT show has potential ...
