Promo isn't that good, but I have 100% faith that this show continues Comedy Central's recent extremely hot streak. Premieres April 30th.

I hope Comedy Central is paying attention to the love their new shows are getting. Anyone know what the ratings have been like?
Not sure about Jeselnik, but both Ben Show and Nathan For You have peaked at like 5-600k with lows of like 250k.

Damn. Is that bad for CC? Sounds like it is.
You know, I don't think it's as bad as it seems. Both the shows clearly have shoestring budgets and seemingly strong online followings. I bet it's like Louie, where they cost so little to make, that regardless of ratings (for the most part), they make sense to keep around. Plus they're both still really new, and neither comic is a household name, so there's still some growing time needed.

tried watching this a couple times. comedy central really needs to do something about their video player.
While I didn't have any problems watching that particular episode, I'm inclined to agree. I frequently have problems watching stuff on CC's site.

Even Leggero, Glaser and Iliza Schlesinger can discuss those topics without being 'dirty in a sexual way.' Not sure what spawned that type of response.

iliza shlesinger and christina pazsitzky are others were aren't overly sexual the way some of the other women are. My point is that the BIG TIME female comedians, like the three you just named, all fit into this category. Mention Tig Notaro to a random person and I bet 75% won't know who you're talking about, mention those three main women and I bet only 25% won't know who you're talking about.

You didn't say 'BIG TIME,' you said 'successful.'

So two episodes in, my biggest problem with this is the dependence on everything but sketches. The sketches have all been great so far. Even her stand-up is good, obviously, but I'm not sold on the man on the street/interview segments yet. The stripper one from last night was particularly boring, save for the catheter part. Hopefully they find a better balance for those in the coming weeks.

I think it's quite good (her relationship sketches are amazing if only because they're set from a female perspective), but there's still a handful of kinks, and some segments, which ive brought up before, could definitely be retooled. I think a second season is exactly what this show needed. I see it going from good to great with the renewal.

I personally think this show is much funnier then Kroll, Jeselnik (sp), or Swardsons sketch shows. Even though I like Kroll and Swardson more then her typically.
I think this is definitely better than Pretend Time, but I thought Kroll Show was a fucking slam dunk and it's hard to compare this to a more talk show-esque Jeselnik Offensive. It's whatever, though, just glad to see you like it. Not enough of that going around right now.

The second episode of the new season is probably the best thing this show has done. These episodes have improved pretty much wholeheartedly on season 1.
