    If you want to get away with being offensive on TV, you have to be awfully funny, and Sit Down gets much closer to "awful" than it ever does to "funny."

    Fox is plopping the series into its Sunday-night animation pit starting this weekend, with executives presumably hoping the audience won't notice that it isn't any good and will numbly sit through it.
  3. Every joke is telegraphed a mile off or just plain flat, especially the attempts to break the fourth wall.

    The series, premiering tomorrow night, is completely hackneyed, a dull dropout from the Adult Swim school of looney 'toons.

    Sit Down is raw, vulgar and blithely offensive, with so many triple and quadruple entendres for so many sexual acts, I lost count.

    Sit Down, Shut Up is a disaster.
  7. 0
    Staleness, however, ranks as a virtue in Sit Down, Shut Up, for the show's token stabs at topicality are truly appalling.

The Arrested Development cast lend their voices brilliantly whilst other voice talent such as Kristin Chenoweth & Kenan Thompson are perfectly fit for it. Full Review »

    It could be good, like an 7 or 8, however its missing something. But I can't figure out what...
