You know, I was watching the pilot of that show The Class on CBS last night. God awful show but it will be a hit, I'm sure. I was also informed recently that Two and a Half Men is currently the number one sitcom on television. Dane Cook is the hottest comedian in the country.
Am I surprised that Lucky Louie is cancelled? Not at all.
it's too vulgar (read: real) for the "Everybody Loves Raymond" set and looks too much like "Everybody Loves Raymond" for most other people to give it a shot.
That's the only explanation. It was the heir apparent to The Honeymooners. People laugh their asses off at Ralph Kramden saying "To the moon, Alice!" but they turn up their noses to "Sometimes I want to punch my wife in the face." Same thing.
"Baby, you're the greatest," vs. "I'm gonna fuck your tits off?" Same thing.
I'm just glad I'm not the only one here who liked the show.
