    This has to be one of the better comedies on tv. I do not care what channel it is on just hoping it would return for a 2nd season. This show just makes me laugh and not worry about seeing who is in bed with who on some sitcoms. I agree with Sally that I love watching this show. Please continue.

    I have enjoyed the show very much and look forward to the new season. The show has the potential to go in many funny directions. The acting and timing have been excellent. The mix of stand up comics and experienced actors has blended extremely well.

    I would love to see an hour long New Years Eve special where they have flashbacks of the first ten shows and then move to the new season. New years eve party at the bar where they say remember the night etc etc. Maybe have a Kareoke news years eve party. Stand-ups get to tell jokes cast member get to sing. I think it would be very funny and a great way to kick off the next ten shows.

    Just keep the laughs coming, I have a feeling it is a show that will be around for years.

    I was happy to find out that Sullivan and Son would be returning next year. I did find this season somewhat short. I have noticed that alot of sitcoms are doing shorter versions. It’s okay. I really enjoy watching this show. It makes me laugh. I love to laugh. It’s good for your soul. Thank you TBS for continuing my kind of sitcom. Can’t wait. Wish they would set a date, so I could write it on my Calendar. Getting older and starting to forget things.
