Why do TV networks hate us?

"According to Jim" has had more seasons than "Mary Tyler Moore," "Bob Newhart," "Dick Van Dyke" and "I Love Lucy."

Seriously, do you know anyone who has ever watched that show? Or worse...bought it on DVD?

I watched an episode once, because a friend of mine had a minor role. She is one of the funniest people I know.

To say that it did not live up to her potential is perhaps the most sizeable understatement I can make.

I just don't get it at all...perhaps a sign of the Apocalypse? Or some sort of cosmic joke???

I watched it once, while waiting in a hospital emergency room. It was a terrible show, and for a comedy, it was not funny at all.

My parents watch it. And my dad LOVES it. But they are in their seventies...I don't know anyone my generation or younger who watches it.

And I love "Two and a Half Men", so who am I to judge?

Yeah...it's one of those things that's JUST ON....I don't choose it, I don't watch it, but if it's on I go clean or something. It's a motivator to get my bum off the couch....

There are just some shows like that. I remember being surprised hearing Mr. Belvedere ran for 6 seasons, when I had never seen the show even once.

I've seen bits and pieces here and there, but never a full episode. I don't know anyone who watches it though. It IS odd. It's like there this bizarro America that likes the opposite of whatever people like where I live.

THAT they'll keep on the air. Pushing Daisies, however...

I saw it once at the gym, much like the only way I ever saw Two and a Half Men. I saw Everybody Loves Raymond once while staying at a friend's parent's house and watched King of Queens at a live taping that raised money for my sorority.
