I think Jim is really funny, but his little side voice thing gets old.

He was on My Boys for a few years. That show was pretty good.

Oh god, he's using the voice already

Is this whole show going to be one long bacon joke?

Shlubby dad with a hot wife. A catch phrase and a gimmick. I give it 3 episodes.

Or 10 seasons.

He wasn't too bad in that Sisto/Anderson era Law and Order he was in.

Was he in a Vanilla L & O? Dammit, I missed that one. Hope someone shows reruns.

He was definitely in a Criminal Intent, as a shifty mortician/graveyard operating guy. Spoiler alert.

his wife was killed and they were on a reality show with their 9 kids.

there's a good reason that show got canned

You shut your whore mouth. Sisto/Anderson were as good a combo as Orbach/Martin. But nothing beats Noth/Sorvini or Noth/Florek. And The Purifier as Assistant DA with the hot brunette worked really well, too. Just because they ran out of plots is no reason to cancel a show.
 
2013-01-12 01:45:57 PM
Please don't fark this up, CBS.

I liked him in that 70s show. It would be awesome to have Mitch Hedberg still alive and give him a show. An hour of those two would be great.

The chemistry between that late-era cast improved the show.

And new Magnificent Bastard Cutter with hot Latina assistant didn't hurt, either.

Yeah, it got a little dull post-Orbach with Farina, but it turned around and was pretty good especially for how long the show has been running.

Whatever. Sea pig, you gotta get yourself an education and a job
 
2013-01-12 02:09:54 PM
Wait... I just learned Greg Giraldo was dead. Now Mitch Hedberg too? Damnit... Better call in security for Christopher Titus and Bill Burr before something happens to them...

Yet Dane Cook, still alive. Sigh

As good as Giraldo and Hedberg were, our biggest loss recently was Patrice O'neal. He could have been legendary if he would have allowed it.

They could call it "My Pants Were Way Too Tight During My Last Special and it Made Everyone a Little Uncomfortable"

Anyone else read that in Gaffigan's side voice?
 
2013-01-12 04:03:06 PM
Jim is really but, his humor doesn't translate to a sitcom.

Best they can do is a Bumbling dad thing. No thanks.
 
2013-01-12 04:37:59 PM
Why must networks take a stand up comedian and build a sitcom around their routines? Unless the comedian is extremely popular, it rarely translates well.

[tvseriesfinale.com image 280x239]


I remember that one. For some reason, I thought Gaffigan had already attempted like 3 network sitcoms. The other one I originally thought was Gaffigan was Stark Raving Mad, but that was Neil Patrick Harris.

/Don't look at me that way, it was a long time ago, and my memory decided that Gaffigan fit the part of an OCD nerd

Was seinfeld extremely popular prior to his show?

I like his show more than his standup.

He was in The Ellen Show. That lasted about a season and a half.

The sad thing is, that counts as a "resume-builder", making him even more desirable.

By far my favorite humor is that which heavily references local politics of NYC or LA despite being broadcast nationwide. They're so zany!

You should check out a show on CBS called How I Met Your Mother. It's filled with zany antics and wacky characters from the Big Apple! And also, it has a laugh track, which is cool 'cuz it lets you know when something is funny.

Nah - the 'cliche' is always shulbby Dad with a crappy job. A regular 'joe-six pack' who also has a hot wife.

In his 'real life' he is a super successful comedian and actor. So he's rich and famous. Not a-list rich and famous, but still.

Rich, successful entertainers get hot wives all the time.

Any regular on Joe Rogan's podcast needs security from Joe's MMA connections. We must preserve Attell, Joey Diaz, and Dom Irrera.

Indiana's not like New York where everyone's like, 'We're from New York and we're the best' or 'We're from Texas and we like things big' it's more like 'We're from Indiana and we're gonna move."

He's not even telling jokes. He just keeps doing the voice! We paid for this?
