  1. I haven’t been watching Demetri Martin this season, and I haven’t watched Sarah Silverman in years, but I follow this show religiously. It’s been better than South Park this season and easily one of the best new shows on TV. Comedy Central out-Adult-Swimmed Adult Swim.
    I can’t wait to see the writers delve deeper into the show’s universe, and especially to see more Leonard. One of the best characters in years. Can cartoon characters win supporting actor Emmy’s?
