Adam Carolla is not funny
I watched about 3 minutes of his show after The Colbert report and it was painful. Jimmy Kimmel is also non-amusing. Why do they both have shows?

1. This is the same question we ask in our house.
How did Adam Carolla and Jimmy Kimmel get shows?

They are painful to watch, even for the minute you are watching, trying to scrutinize why they have shows.

3. Same reason Tucker Carlson keeps getting news gigs?
Same reason el lame-o Saturday Night Live cast members get infinite shots at making bad, forgettable, straight to DVD comedies?

2. Agreed.
I personally would rather chew on a cardboard box.

5. I love the stony silence that greets his "jokes".
If I were on the production team, I'd pipe in the sound of crickets chirping, just to be a smart-ass.

8. If ANYONE ever needed a cheezy laugh track, it's this guy.
It came on after Colbert last night and I was DESPARATELY fumbling for the remote... "Must... change... station..."

6. I have to change the channel even when his commercials come on.
I thought The Man Show is/was stupid, and I don't think Adam Carolla is funny. Plus, his voice gets on my nerves.
Why do they keep pushing him?

7. Carolla does "Drawn Together" however (SEASON 2 STARTS TONIGHT!)
and whatever his contribution to it besides the voice of the pig is welcome - it's a great show and the 2nd season starts TONIGHT!

I could tell that the Adam Carolla show was a dud THE FIRST NIGHT.

The Cobert Report is GREAT, however...

11. I like him for this very important reason
he's not Colin Quinn.
(who used to be on after The Daily Show. And was the cause of injury throughout our fine country when people fell stumbling in panic for the remote trying to switch before his incoherent blather could be heard.)
He set the standard for not funny.
