It's a funny concept, as the commercials are a success.

Will is succeed as a show? I say it depends on the writing. If they have great writers on board, and make it consistently funny, it could be gold.

If not, it could be a sitcom trainwreck of epic proportions.

I'll look forward to seeing it play out.


The most recent ad.. when, at a party, one caveman is chastising another on a balcony for buying Geiko, and are interrupted by a third, who joyfully announced he and his gf are getting back together, only to be blown off by the others, who ask him to give them a minute... made me laugh out loud the first time I saw it.

genius. As for the sitcom... most sitcoms seem to flop more than not nowadays, so i dont see this being a good one.

Is the well of imagination really so dry that they have to stoop to these sorts of tactics to come up with something they think people will watch?

Good Lord that's a bad idea! :-P

One has to wonder just how much money the creators of those guys are making right now. If I were them, I'd milk it for all it's worth, too.

It could be really funny ;-D

And it could show us to just joke around with political correctness or whatever
