  • Just like stated above, exactly why I watch it

    Lewis Black is a favorite stand up of mine because of his fury and wit so couple that with hilarious weekly social debates and you've got a great show. This episode in particular is a highlight. This was the funniest episode yet, the Cheney vs Cheney battle, the Lesbian conversation between Patton and Lewis. I laughed the whole time. It might not be quite on par with the Daily Show or Colbert Report (A very hard task, mind you) but it's a great show especially with the myriad of crap that's been on lately and I hope it continues to do well. The last thing we need is another fine show being canceled prematurely.
  • Almost a victory...but alas....

    Here I'm referring to Greg Giraldo, for the first time since the beginning of the series, it seemed that he was gonna win his case, and with Paris Hilton as cause, how could he loose???, well he did anyway...

    The show wasn't as funny as it could be, or the previous ones, but still good, I wonder if Lewis Black got paid by the Hilton's to get Paris out the hook, because clearly she was getting the boot on this one, and at the end the vote went to Chenney, oh well another case of beer on my bookie's tab....
