    I watched all three weeks. I found that the stories you were making fun of I wasn't familiar with or interested in. Nothing here to hold my attention.

    Thought it was going to be interesting but making a joke of Ebola is just not cool. Sorry guys but you've lost me.

    These kids are the real deal. Talking as someone who only eats mustard during the holiday season, I can see they have filming, writing and comedy chops. Keep it up 'ganza guys.

    Not terrible but not really amazing, I like the idea but doesn't seem doable without a pretty big budget.

    I really like the concept. I would watch this every Saturday night after SNL...Or watch it as I'm PVRing SNL. I liked the Chris Hadfield. #supportlocalmusic So many great bands out there. We used Attica Riots a independent Winnipeg for our track. Going to follow you ...- Shirts Comedy
