    May have been their best episode ever.
    But I cannot believe what CBS lets through.

    I haven't been watching it (Heroes is just a lot better), but this show still makes me laugh when I do see it. And Alan's second ex-wife is so damn hot.

    The show is hilarious. Wish I had Tivo for it since I'm usually watching Heroes. Tonight's ep was unbelievable. I, too, couldn't believe some of the stuff that got through.

    With Prison Break off the air, How I Met Your Mother is a strong 8 p.m. show and The Class is decent enough to keep me on CBS in the 8:30 slot.

    For those who didn't watch...what went through?

    Crap. One of the few episodes I missed because practice went long. Will it be on the web?

    Why did practice go late?
    Coach: Hey PF, I just made fun of SG for throwing a shitty pass. And what do you do on the next possesion? You think you're playing for the fucking Globetrotters and you turn it over. So I've made fun of SG, You, and who else today?
    Another player (SF): You haven't called my name today.
    Coach: SF, Shut the fuck up. The only reason I haven't called your name is that you've fucked up every other play and I'd be out of breath by now if I cussed your fucking ass.
    SG: Mumble, in audible from the stands.
    Coach: Shut the fuck up.
    SG: quiet mumble to a teammate
    Coach: Shut the fuck up when I'm talking. STFU and listen or you'll get less playing time than you're getting now!

    Another exchange:
    SG throws a weak (lob) skip pass
    Coach: Hey SG, I think your practice started at 2, not 4:30. You know, with the players that have fucking pony-tails.

    I love to laugh at practice.

    I've only watched this show a couple of times, but the one thing that always sticks out in my mind when it comes up is the uber-homosexual theme song. It puts "It's Raining Men" to shame.

    I take it you've seen the opening where Sheen, Cryer and the kid actually PERFORM the theme song. Used to be they would only use that opening one out of every three episodes. It's a lot more often now, and I always look forward to it.

    Incidentally, I'm sure some of you have learned this by now, but if you have it Tivo-ed, be sure to freeze on the words that come up for about one-half of a second at the very end of each show. They're from Chuck Lorre, the creator, and they're a hoot.

    The "vanity cards" from the end of the shows are all archived here:

    the show started with Sheen singing Christmas Carols and transplanting "I'm getting laid" and similar sexual references for traditional words, all while lighting candles. It was laced with innuendo throughout, which might finally prompt me to get Tivo. I need to watch that show when the kids aren't home.

    Sorry. I don't like the show. It sure pushes the raunchy envelope, but it's dumb.

    What is funny about the little kid getting drunk on spiked egg nog?

    What's believable about the mothers trying to talk Charlie and some bimbo out of screwing while in the bedroom with them?

    And the chick singing Christmas carols to the same tune? That's funny?

    I forgot to say that the show does seem to pander to its target audience pretty successfully, though.

    I thought this was about Rick Majerus.
