And it's really kind of hard to muster any sort of umbrage regarding a shitty sitcom on CBS when they've spent so long conditioning me to expect that sort of thing. But FX? They've been a known supplier of challenging, original comedy for several years now. To see a black-hole of artistry like this not only show up on their slate but also become one of their flag-ship series is just downright disheartening. Integrity be damned. Already rich cable execs gotta eat.
