    Very mediocre. The main characters are not all that likeable, none of whom I can identify with. Why a show ostensibly about fantasy football has to resort to a bedroom scene of the wife inserting digit into hubby's rear during sex in the FIRST 15 MINUTES of the premiere episode is beyond me. Sorry, FX, but this show is headed towards fantasy purgatory.

    The show is decent at best, enjoyable enough at times. But mostly you will roll your eyes at the childish content, humorous in rare moments. It's almost as if the writers are inappropriate adolescents, it 's that pathetic. If you are a person who enjoys overplayed lazy sexual jokes, then you might of found a new comedy home.

If you have Netflix check it out if your one of the few who enjoys obnoxious material, lay your own judgement upon it. Expand

    The raunchy comedy on The League had me laughing out loud a few times, but mostly I felt as though I’d seen it all done better before.

    The dialogue is entirely composed of trash talk, and as far as that goes, it's pretty creative.

    Not much about this show rang true to me, except the moment when the league commissioner begged players to get their fees in on time.
