    If hackneyed sitcoms with one or two laughs an episode are what you like then The Bill Engvall Show is for you.

    The show attempts to generate "family humor" yet fails in areas where The War At Home and 8 Simple Rules excelled. A strong lead character is necessary in every show. Bill Engvall just doesn't have the comedic timing that Michael Rapaport or John Ritter had in their respective shows.

    The characters in this program are extremely one-dimensional. The daughter is a generic, materialistic female that you see in every comedy. The children lack the ability to make their lines seem real, and not like they are struggling to memorize them from a script.

    Nancy Travis led to the downfall of CBS series Becker, and she hasn't gotten any funnier in the 4 years since that has left the airwaves. While the show is written well and features a good payoff in the end, this is like a program out of the 90's. The reason those shows grabbed ratings and remain classics today is because the comedy held-up. Despite giving off that vibe to the untrained eye The Bill Engvall Show cannot match humor produced by shows on the big networks. I will applaud the usage of underappreciated Saturday Night Live veteran Tim Meadows. He is a reliable comedian and steals the show (not like that's a strenuous task) and allows the program to tap into a different audience.

    The Bill Engvall Show is better than dreadful network sitcoms like How I Met Your Mother and Scrubs, but I have a feeling that if they allowed their humor to be a little more adult-orienated then it might be a little funnier.moreless
