What's the worst show ever put on Comedy Central??
(In your humble opinion?)

Here's what I think: Anyone remember that horrendously unfunny British cartoon called "Bob and Margaret"?? That show could have been used as an anesthetic for surgery patients. I know some people like British humour, but that show put together all of the weak traits of British comedy and packed it in to 22 minutes.

The real travesty was that it was given a primo time slot. I remember Comedy Central used to have a Sunday night "animation block", which was kind of like the proto-Adult Swim. And if I'm not mistaken, "Bob and Margaret" was put on right after South Park.

I think the show quickly got really piss-poor ratings (no one was WATCHING the damn thing, cause everyone HATED it), then the execs cancelled it altogether.

A rare moment in time where a show was actually cancelled because it sucked.

6. Ditto!
I didn't get half the jokes on that crap show. Maybe it's because I didn't grow up in a trailer park. ;)

3. I hated Collin Quin
But I thought he was untalented on SNL too.

I haven't been watching Comedy Central long enough to make a good judement, though.

Now, there were some later episodes after it was brought back a second time that weren't so good, but the originals were great. I thought :)

I thought Viva Variety sucked.

5. That's a tough one.
I can't decide which I hate more: Tough Crowd or Blue Collar TV.

11. Both suck, IMO.
Tough Crowd was just another term for "Right-wing pussies who only use their flapping mouths, and couldn't defend themselves physically even if they tried"

9. That really wavy cartoon about the psychologist...
It made me really nervous every time I would watch it.

Oh yeah, and it was boring and stupid.

12. The Blue Color Comedy Show
Or something like that, Couldn't stand it. Then again.. I can't stand anything that involves Larry the Cable Guy (I had the "Pleasure" of listening to his Christmas C.D at a friend's house... joy)
