This Just In

Show Summary

Welcome to the This Just Inguide at TV.com. If its in the news, and on your minds, Its on This Just In... The world changes every day, and This Just In's resident conservative Brian Newport isn't happy about it one damn bit. The kind of guy who says what everybody's thinking, Newport has no filter. If it's in his head, it's out of his mouth and there's absolutely no stopping him -- no matter what how much his friends are going to have to duck and cover. And whether it's a visit from Ted Kennedy, losing his favorite bar to women, or throwing a "Warfare" to raise money for the military still in Iraq, one thing is for sure: If it's in the news, and on your minds, it's on "This Just In." Brian Newport- Outspoken, opinionated, unabashedly politically conservative and quick to crack an inappropriate joke, Newport is both the center of the hurricane and the cause of it. A speak first, think second kind of guy, apologize eventually kind of guy... you can always count on Newport to either say what everybody's thinking, or what everybody wishes he wouldn't say at all. Jimmy Townhouse- Newport's best friend, and the guy who constantly has to apologize for his pal's occasionally over the top opinions and actions. A teacher, a moderate democrat, but most importantly a friend -- Jimmy knows that Newport is a pretty decent guy who is usually doing the right things for the wrong reasons. Townhouse is the calm, chewy center of "This Just In." Craig Tindle- The guy who was cool, fun, and a blast to be around... until he got married and surrendered his spine and goals along with his penis A house husband who is only a few Dr. Phil episodes away from total puss-dom, Tindle went from being in customer service for a major department store, to customer service for his wife Hu. Newport and Townhouse hope to some day see the Craig they knew before marriage... but for all they know, that guy died with Kurt Kobain. Craig Tindle isn't just a married guy -- he's a cautionary tale for every man who fears the worst in marriage. Sami- A third generation Latina studying poly sci at a nearby college, Sami is smart, beautiful and ridiculously and annoyingly leftist. Sami has big ideals, big goals and some big buttons Newport loves pushing. At 23, Newport considers her the loud, naive, misguided liberal little sister he never had... that he would probably try to sleep with were it not for that icky socialist thing. Hu Tindle- Shrill, strong willed, smart and dangerous, Hu's neoconservatism makes Newport's moderate right wing politics look like a trip through what's left of Ted Kennedy's brain. But more than their occasional political differences, Newport and Hu find themselves at war over Craig -- each claiming equal rights to him (Newport through friendship, Hu through marriage) and each having no qualms about tearing what's left of his soul to shreds to make their point.moreless

    It is bad enough that other shows like this get good reviews, but asking to bring it back, smacks of desperation.







    This Just In become the most duncical short lived show ever seen on Television, even more hammerheaded than BOTH The Goode Family & Will and DeWitt combined!





    Spike Tv if you have fan writing to bring this back, please for the love of all that's viacom, steer clear of this insipid show. They're better off watching Brickleberry on Comedy Central.moreless

    I loved this show. I can still remember several jokes from episodes and I haven't seen it in years. It is a great show if you are somewhat political and somewhat right leaning. I'm a right wing conservative and I loved this show! Great job of even mocking our side of the political aisle. Two of the jokes still make me laugh my butt off when I think of them.



    In one episode Ted Kennedy lands in the guys bar. Newport goes and gives a speech somewhere and is driving back across the Golden Gate when Ted wakes up drunkenly in the back seat. Newport says "Ted Kennedy. Car. Bridge. Water. Oh ****.." The car then flips off the bridge and starts sinking. It lands upside down at the bottom. You hear Ted say "You were a lot prettier the last time this happened.



    The other is from the Vegas episode. Newport is driving the gang and they are listening to Sean Hannity. One of guys says "Do we have to listen to Hannity?" Newport says "Sure let's see what Rush is up to. He changes the station in mid sentence from Hannity to Rush who is completing the exact same sentence. They get a weird look on their faces and go back and forth. It is the same speech. Newport just says "Huh. You know I always suspected this."



    That is funny. I love Hannity and Rush and I laughed at this joke. That is funny.



    Overall a great show that wasn't given a real chance.moreless
  • The good [shows] die young.

    9.1
    Every good show must come to an end. Teen Titans. The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. Kim Possible. Danny Phantom is rumored to leave us next season. But this show didn't even last very long, and there aren't any repeats, either. This sucks! This Just In was awesome! It should at least have repeats if nothing else! I hope someday Spike TV will do that someday, and maybe, when Marmel is done with DP, he will try to bring back This Just In...but the chances of that happening are slim. Ah well. Guess it wasn't meant to be.



    R.I.P. This Just In. You have made me laugh my pants off many times.moreless
  • This Just In, a show that was panned because of its right-wing slant to comedy

    8.5
    This show was actually quite funny if you could deal with the mostly right-wing based comedy. It was relatively current and certainly funnier than many other animated shows that try to be political as well as funny. Many of the jokes were aimed at political junkies who followed current and previous political events. The show at times was side splitting funny, and would usually bring loud laughter from myself and others who were watching it for the few episodes they had.



    I miss this show as I usually watched South Park and this back to back. Oh well at least South Park is still around.moreless
  • Where to watch?
