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.

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.
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.
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.
The Hollywood Reporter has primetime ratings for the whole damn year up. Notables (because they're shows I watch): 17. Lost [14.6m; 9th in 18-49] 51. Prison Break [9.3m; 33rd in 18-49] 58. My Name Is Earl [8.9m; 37th in 18-49] 61.
