Does anybody watch this show?
I saw a couple of episodes when it first came out, but I really dont watch enough TV to remember when something I like is on.
So this Christmas I bought the whole first season and I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this show!
Did I mention that I LOVE it!
Is it still on (did they make it to a second Season?) When?
I would really like to catch up and start watching it.

I love it too. We borrowed the first and second season from my bil, and have only a few more episodes left of the first season before we get to dive into the second. It is truly hilarious. The third season is on currently, I think, though I have never seen a new one. I don't even know what network it's on. I heard that the show gets great reviews from tv analyst folks and whatnot, but that it doesn't really have a big viewer base. I have multiple laugh-out-louds every episode!!!

Oh my gosh me too!
Plus I just HATE lowest common denomonator Television (reality tv) and most things on nowadays.
I like characters that are GOOD. I like to root for the good guy and see people unafraid to do the right thing (even if he is the only one in his whole family)
I am excited to hear the 2nd season is out on video. That gives me hope that I will be able to keep watching when I am done with this season.
Maybe I will go watch one now.
I had better start watching it on TV before they decide to cancel it.
(like they did FIrefly)

It's my favorite show!

Joline, I think you're too late to start watching it. It's most likely going to be cancelled although the final decision hasn't come down yet. There's some hope that Showtime will pick the show up if Fox cans it. But this season was cut short and the final four episodes aired recently, all at once, up against the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. Fox really doesn't seem to have any interest in trying to promote or continue the show at this point.

Isnt that always how it works?
Intelligent well written shows dont appeal to the target audience.

GRRR makes me angry!
Well, if the last season is over, maybe it will be out on video soon.

Its one of my favorite shows too.

Fox put the last four episodes up against the olympics opening night. Of course ratings were horrible.

AFter we watched the last 4 eps, my husband yelled "I hate you all!!" - it is such a funny show. We were dying of laughter during those final ones.

I love this show, have the first two seasons on dvd, will buy the third.

I get really upset when I think about the crap that passes for comedy/good tv these days when this show can't get ratings at all. I mean, "skating with celebraties"? COME ON!
