  1. The biggest problem with this show is that it is extremely easy for the humor to become dated. Some of the stuff they touch upon on this show entails things that literally just happened in the last few days! And considering how fast the American news cycle goes, it will be incredibly easy to forget about this stuff.

    That’s My Bush did this stuff better; it was more of a parody of sitcoms to begin with. (then again, that might be a reason why it was so short-lived)
