  1. 100
    Not only the funniest new show this season, but the strangest one since "Get A Life."
  2. 75
    Thanks to Corddry's social misfit charisma, Ricky Blitt's affable lowbrow lunacy flashes with a sharp, dizzy wit.
  3. Reviewed by: Diane Werts

    The emotional reality is so true here that not only do they get away with an assortment of gags about condoms, massage parlors and other juvenile fixations, but they make them resonate endearingly.
  4. Corddry manages to make scenes work that otherwise would have viewers reaching for the remote.
  5. 30
    The overall feeling is, "How did Rob Corddry wander onto the set of a shitty sitcom? Quick, someone get him back to 'The Daily Show' before they replace him!"
  6. You can only hope that Blitt, a first-time executive producer, will tire of middle-school humor and move to something a little more satisfying for grown-ups.
  7. 0
    Probably the most mistitled sitcom of the decade.
