Depressing signs that evil is afoot

"According to Jim" has returned to air waves, yep, you read that right. Decent shows get cancelled but there are enough alcoholics and lonely people, who don't care what they're watching as long the TV is blaring, to keep this fecal matter on a major network.

I've tried to watch "ATJ" (i'm sure somebody calls it that, I hate you ) on several occasions and it's gawdawful torture, just 30 straight frigging minutes of sorrow and sadness. I cannot comprehend anyone who enjoys this, these same people must applaud at toilets flushing.

This kind of safe, laughless compost is exactly what is killing network TV.

Oh and I'm sure I have the rest of my life to see it on the Family channel, where it will get another season no doubt.

I can't help but think that Jim Belushi would have ridiculed a sitcom like this when he was working on SNL back in the 80s. Funny what a big paycheck and soft hours will do to someone's integrity.

I agree, btw.

Yeah it was a little angry, I just can't understand how something so mediocre on every level is on television other than the sad relevation that most people have no taste.

Jim Belushi is capable of better.


As hellish and nightmarish as this wretched piece of turd is at least it's still a sitcom and not one of those dreaded evil "reality shows(brrrr, I can't even stand to type that phrase).

Puppetboy has a good point, there is a greater evil in this world and that's the one made me know who "Tila Tequila" is...
