  • This show is great, however some people may not get the humor. It's not like any other show on the air, and I wish it was still around.

    Four reporters for a news station in Spokane, WA which I have been to multiple times (fictional news station, but the town is real) are willing to do absolutely anything to get noticed and picked up, or at least not get canceled. The show is full of one liners, and I think the only downfall with the show was they wrote the season to be the beginning and the end. It could pick up where it left off, but I think they knew there was a good chance a lot of people wouldn't appreciate their style of humor, so the finished the season off in a way that doesn't leave anything questionable. Of all the shows I've watched that were canceled, I really hope these guys can somehow start up again.moreless
  • An ignorant group of people that call themselves a news team travel around looking for stories that turn out to be bogus.

    5.0
    I would say that this show made the status of television mockumentaries go from 'overdone' to 'extremely tired.' With only about 4 good shows remaining on Comedy Central's primetime, this took out the faith I had in the channel's new shows.

    The problem with "Dog" is simply that its not funny. It is obviously inspired by great mockumentaries like the two 'Offices' but fails to imitate it. The characters are poorly developed, and the script is even worse. I'm not that surprised that Comedy Central didn't stop after "Stella" and so many other failures. What's in it for them?moreless
  • This show is about four news corrrespondants that are always rushing to finish the story. With thier racist and predegist views it says what i want to say.

    One of the funnist show on televison, if you dont watch this show you must have a brain tumor. That could be the only explanation. If this show is not on for at least five seasons I will never watch tv again. With thier racist and predegist views it says what i want to say.

  • An amazing display of improv skill. This isn't for everyone: it's dry, but if you get their angle of humor you realize it's true comedic genius. I hope it lasts though, it's almost too good for the mainstream.moreless

    Take the daily show, Reno 911!, and the Upright Citizens Birgade. Shake well until you find yourself offended, wierded out, completely uncomfortable, confused, sick, frightened, and/or luaghing hysterically.



    You HAVE to keep in mind that they are interacting with people who do not realize this is a comedy show.



    I'm sure many more influences could be listed, the true genius of this show is the unique synthesis of ideas into a solid concept and the PERFECT execution of that concept.

  • I can't believe this is on the same channel as South Park and The Colbert Report.

    5.0
    This show is not good (can't make it much clearer then that). It's about these news casters going around doing news on people (Spring Break, etc.). Now, the idea is very good, a comedy on news casting. But unlike other news comedy shows, like The Colbert Report and The Daily Show, is done very poorly.



    Sure, it has it's funny moments. But the jokes are not funny. This is not a good show. When your watching a show/special on Comedy Central, you want to laugh until your about to vomit. The biggest problem is the writing, it's shallow and not funny. If this series is going to last as long as South Park, they need to work on smarter jokes. Even some children's cartoons have smarter, funnier jokes than this.



    To sum it up, This is not a good show. When new Reno 911, Chappelle's Show, Futurama (CC will start airing reruns and new episodes in 2008), and Mind of Mencia episodes are about to premeire. And Comedy Central already doing a great job with South Park (and new episodes coming out in the Fall). And when we got better news casting shows like The Colbert Report and The Daily Show, there is really no place for Dog Bites Man on CC. Great idea, poor execution.
