    I love theis show. The humor is really dry, but I can't get enough. I do think David Spade was a poor casting though. He doesn't exactly scream single guy that gets a lot of action.

    Two shows in, it is definitely getting better. I loved the secret code words used. Lately in our office we have a game of trying to come up with new ones.

    They had the:
    Manitoba Snowcone
    Peppermint Bobsled
    Velvet Hat Trick

    If you are an adult, and can stomach some very disgusting descriptions, you can look these things up. Evidently, the three on the show were totally made up, as they are not listed, but if you ever wondered about the Rusty Trombone or the Dirty Sanchez or the Donkey Punch, or the Portuguese Breakfast, they are all listed at urbandictionary.com

    Remember: Do not go there if you don't want to read some really sick stuff. Sometimes just the name is funny enough. (Again, you were warned)

    My wife and I really like the show too. Unfortunately we're the "married" couple.

    Agree with the Spade casting, though I find him funny if not believable. But he's been linked to Hollywood hotties, so I can use my imagination a bit.

    I like it. If it continues to improve it can be very good. I love Monday night on CBS.

    Dang - I wish I could get caught up on EWs...I am sure there would have been a note about this. I wanted to watch it, but can't start a show once I've missed a few eps. :(

    I have them recorded, but haven't watched any yet. See the "How far behind are you" thread.

    I've been pleasantly surprised, and I've been finding it more enjoyable then "Old Christine"

    (that amuses me to no end since I'm a 40 something woman)

    I don't think David Spade was a poor choice; the show isn't really centered around him; he's more of a supporting role. He's the one that made me watch the show; otherwise I wouldn't have given it a chance. The dude from Seinfeld is very funny, and I really like the show so far. It's the ONLY CBS show I watch or have watched in years. I'm looking forward to the season; I just hope it isn't cancelled 4-5 episodes in like Daybreak was on ABC.

    I think it's funny because my wife and I are exactly like the married couple.

    I see your point about David Spade, he may have been the reason I gave it a chance too.

    This show is a must see on CBS. I really hope others are watching.
    I cannot get enough of (Puddy - from Seinfeld show). Cannot remember his name in this show. Love his character. The women are very good too.

    Patrick Warburton. He's definitely the best part of the show.

    Spade is good too, but the guy that just got engaged is the weak link IMO. When he's onscreen it just seems like filler. Or establishing setups for Warburton and Spade to be funny.

    [lightbulb] Actually, maybe that's his purpose on the show.

    I liked the show from the start, despite Spade. In fact I'm finding that I'm enjoying his part in it. Patrick Warburton's character: He and I are identical. Except he's funnier than me with a much more dry and quick wit, quite a bit better looking, and nowhere near as overweight and out of shape as I am.

    It took just one viewing for me to decide this is must-see TV for me. As for Christine, that also took just one viewing for me to decide that's must-never-see again TV.

    I really like it too. I like the fact that David Spade is on the show, even if it's hard to believe he's a player. My wife tured to me during the first episode and asked, "how are we supposed to believe he(Spade) gets all these women?" I said, "hun, he WAS in Tommy Boy."

    I really like this show as well. I am a closet David Spade fan (out now). He's the reason I wanted to watch.

    I love mondays on CBS as well but tossed this one after the first show. It is really just trying too hard.

    I like it, but for me, Spade is the weak link. Patrick Warburton is hilarious, and I just love the subtle way he delivers his lines.

    you need to keep watching for at least a couple more weeks.

    I believe the second episode was MUCH better than the pilot. Hopefully, that will set the trend.
