Comics Unleashed gets two more years

Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen, the late-night half-hour chat show for comedians that features the least actual chat of any TV show I know, will get two more seasons — or 260 episodes — to blatantly promote stand-up comedians. Which is ultimately still a good thing. Right? The series already has produced 131 episodes with a total of 337 comedians. (B&C)

Are your feelings on this show and its benefits for comedy as split as they are about Last Comic Standing? Or do you harbor more love/hate for Allen’s project?
