Got better as it went along for sure, first few were tough to get through.

I’m sure they could have continued on for a bit, but it works well as a complete story (buttoning things up nicely in the finale).

Agreed on all points. It got better and better, and this season was top notch IMO.

I read an interview earlier with Pete that was conducted 40 minutes after the show was cancelled. He basically said that it sucked to be cancelled, but that yes with the career (and personal) upswing that the ending could have been worse. However he said they had season 4 all mapped out and outlined. Also, that a movie is a possibility (although that it would likely be a stand alone, and not a "reader's digest version of what season 4 would have been"). He also said the he actually did have a real life girlfriend who did the whole 'deaf voice' thing during a fight. That Kat character was so painful/good. Feel like we've all had that person that you brought to the party who gets drunk and obnoxious lol.

Sad to see it go. for sure

It's only been on 3 seasons? Feels like it's been on forever.

I thought it was the second season. Was surprised to see three when I was deleting it off my DVR post watching. Agree that at least it ended in a way that easily could have been the series finale.

Boo. Thought it really hit it's stride this season and enjoyed every episode.
What the actual f this just ruined my morning. Now i have to buy myself something to feel better.

This sucks tho, I really loved this show.
I'm a huge Pete Holmes/You Made it Weird fan, and this news sucks. However, I'm not sure how well this show resonated with non-Holmes fans. The show often times felt like they were shooting around other people's schedules too much and the story/writing suffered from that. It would have been better had they focused on the core stories and didn't try to cram every working comedian in NY into it. For example, "MC, Middle, Headliner" (Season 3, Ep. 4) was one of my favorite episodes of TV ever. That episode was 95% about Pete. But the episode where Pete sits down with Kat at the bar and they randomly have Amy Schumer ripping on him at the end, what was up with that? How'd she get there? It didn't work at all.

Black Monday is pretty solid comedy. Only 1/2 hour so it's a quick watch.
Cheadle's gold, and Paul Scheer is solid as always.
Finale airs this Sunday.

Happy! started again on SyFy* last night. If you didn't watch the first season, do yourself a favor and get on it. Meloni is a drymounting brilliant in it.

Nice. Also reminds me of when Sly Stallone and Faye Dunaway were a power couple way back in my mind just now.

I decided to watch this after all the praise here. I had initially dismissed it since the previews made it look like another slapstick Apatow jawn, which I don't need. I wasn't particularly familiar with Holmes other than his last stand up, which I did find funny, but still couldn't get over the Apatow association. I wish I had started watching sooner. I'm up to season 2, and it's much better than I was expecting. So far, all of the other standups involved really make it outstanding. As a former Sarah Silverman show fan, I thought it was hilarious that they had Steve Agee still crashing at her place. Other standouts so far that come to mind are the dick pic bit and the sit pee.

Line of Duty - Season 5 is on. Well worth checking out if you like a good solid police show.
