TBS might not be the benchmark of great television, and even though its slogan is “Very Funny,” that doesn’t mean it’s true. Case in point – how did this show make it to TV?
The point of a preview is to show funny things if it’s a comedy, right? Then why do promos for Men at Work show anything but?
Unfortunately, I was unable to find any more extensive previews, so allow me to transcribe some of the “jokes”…
In one exchange, a douche from this show is mad at the guy from NBC’s Las Vegas for banging his cleaning lady. They go back and forth repeating the word bang a lot. Which prompts the punchline: “I don’t believe how many times you guys said the word bang.”
In another scene, the guy from Fox’s That 70’s Show asks a woman on a date. The three other jackasses dance using lewd sex moves in the background. Her response: “They know I can see them right?” His punchline: “Yeah, they don’t care.”
And for my last bit of torture, the guy from NBC’s Las Vegas tells the guy from Fox’s That 70’s Show to not dwell on his break-up forever. Setup: “It’s been like an hour.” Punch-in-the-throat-line: “Yet we’re still talking about it.”
I can’t recall any others, and I don’t care to.
You want comedy? I don’t know if it will satiate you, but it’s light years better than Men at Work:
