Hopefully this never gets too popular


Genius show. Original and laugh out loud funny. I just hope it never gets too big and he falls into Ali G / Borat level famous and has to stop.

I know but I'm scared he's not known enough to get more viewers. His viewers have dropped in season 3. I want this show to last forever. Lol. Nathan needs to go to the south where he's probably less known.

The ratings for first run episodes dipped because they moved it to Thursday night, a more competitive time slot (especially when football is in season, as it was during NFY's third season).

Maybe I'm optimistic but I think Comedy Central knows they have something special here that they are proud to be a part of even if it never becomes a smash hit. Nathan probably has fighters on his side at Viacom that will let the series get a decent run. I think he'll get five seasons minimum.

He would have been better off having this as some sort of youtube show, old people would have never caught on.

Have old people caught on tho?

Not based on MY personal experience! :P

Agree. I wish some producers or networks were willing to invest money in the long run or plan out 60 episodes and don't air an episode until production ends.

Undercover Boss was the same deal, after season 1, it got sketchy and after season 2, I stopped watching because it was OBVIOUS to anyone that they were "getting bossed"!
