    yeah, that might have been a good idea. looks like a loser show.

    Not really surprising. He is funny on the standup but his show just isnt 1/2 what Conan’s show is. I wish him luck in the future.

    Its two year run? The show will have ran a grand total of 80 episodes. The first episode was October 28 of last year. That was less than 7 months ago. It was an order of a set number of episodes for a test run, and then an order of additional episodes when the first proved hopeful enough. There was only one “season” if you want to use that inaccurate terminology for a late night format.

    There are many shows on channels such as TBS that have no reason to be on the air. They’re just devoid of entertainment. Holmes stand up can be funny but the show was lame. How the hell does this get canceled when “Men At Work” is still in production. Is it because Masterson has Scientology yank or something? MAW is horrible. No writing, no acting, no nothing.
