Demetri is a great stand up comic, but his acting in the sketches was pretty abysmal. The Time Gigolo part was pretty good though.

It looks like his show is going to be very hit or miss. Either really good, or almost unwatchable.
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.

This is pretty much how I felt about it, too. I loved the Time Gigolo, but other times in the show were just painful.

I couldn't stand the seemingly fake crowd laughter ever 10 seconds.

I watched a couple of episodes online yesterday and I thought they were pretty funny, even some of the sketches.

true story: he went to the same Greek Church as my wife did growing up. He is pretty funny.

I like the show, sometimes it's just plain stupid but other times it's hilarious.

Exactly. Some things really crack me up, while others are completely off the ball. It's worth watching after South Park, though.
