The verdict is in

I waited until I saw at least three episodes, and I officially have now. And I think The Sarah Silverman Program is funny.

Who wants to tell me I'm wrong?!?

I agree! I loved last night's episode.

I thought the song she sang with her "daughter" was so cute! Can't wait to sing poop songs with my own kid.

I dunno. I loved the "Jesus is Magic" DVD but can't stand the show. It's like Seinfeld, which I also didn't like. Unpleasant, unlikable, self-obsessed people. Where Seinfeld at least had the world going about its business without caring, just passing the Seinfeld gang by, in the SSS the gang f*cks the world up. And doesn't care.

I *wanted* to like it! And I like The Venture Brothers a lot. I dunno....

I never understood why people find her funny. I also don't like Lisa Lampelli and American Idol. So clearly, I'm not the barometer of the American public.

Mike, I was kind of lukewarm about Jesus is Magic. Parts had me guffawing alone in my apartment. Other parts had me checking my watch.

The show is hit or miss, really. Some bits fall flat, but I guess I just find her character really easy and fun to laugh at. She's such a moron and she says the most ridiculous things. Maybe I'm just reveling in the fact that she's even able to say some of these things on primetime cable — a clear victory for the morally depraved.

Fritz, you don't like Sarah Silverman? Oh my god, that makes no sense to me. It seems like her sardonic, sneering mockery would be right up your alley.

I don't care for LL or AI either, though, so at least we agree on that.

I've never seen it. I did see the ad for her show, in which she wonders if a black god would steal the moon. I was immediately turned off. I don't know why, either. Has nothing to do with god.

The "I pooped" ad was just as unfunny.

Clearly, I've never seen the show, so I can't make any comments on that.

But, like Mike, I like the Venture Brothers.

I like the Venture Brothers, too.

I don't know, I think I like Sarah Silverman because she riffs on the part of me that I try to hide — the part that is smug and arrogant but completely clueless about the world. It's cathartic to laugh at a jackass like that, because it essentially means ridiculing your own fucked-upness.

And as someone who is deeply ambivalent about my Self, that's dark comedy gold, right there.

That probably makes no sense.
