    It’s a good show. Stop trying to be a critic trying to predict the next Emmy Award show. I approach it as if I am hanging out with these people. The characters are likable enough. It’s like Big Bang Theory. You are coming home to friends. It’s the only original TBS show I can watch. How did cee-lo get a show?

    Terrible show; Hard to believe you can get that many people into a room and not one of them is funny; Definately not Cheers, that was witty and hilarious; this is one of the worst show ever put on television; THIS IS NOT REPRESENTATIVE OF ANY BAR YOU WOULD FIND IN PITTSBURGH!!!!! An EMT comes into the bar and drinks and then goes back out to work? This was their idea of humor, seriously???? beyond awful . . . . .

    • w cruz says

      Ya…. this show is hilarious that’s why it’s renewed. you have a poor taste in humor. its suppose to be a comedy. If you do not understand that well guess? one word Sh

        The show is terrible. It’s not funny. It’s not “Cheers” or anything close to it. (As it was billed) It had lower rating than half the shows that were cancelled last year. (look it up) The only reason it’s being renewed is because the network spent a ton of money promoting it.
        Again….it’s TERRIBLE.

          I’ve only ever seen ads/previews for it, and it is so so awful, I can’t even tune in to give it a chance.

    This show is awful. If you enjoy and appreciate the art of acting, & the brilliance of truly hilarious wonderful comedy…Do NOT WATCH IT! Waste of time. I don’t understand how anyone on earth thinks its funny. But if you do….you probably live an absolutely wonderful, care free, super happy life. Best wishes. =)

      No kidding. The people who think this “comedy” is good, probably go through life with a whistle and a smile and never have a thought in their head. And they are all mouth-breathers too…
