I wish it were more family friendly. I love the Sklar brothers, and had high hopes. I used to watch Cheap Seats, and catch their podcast on occasion.
My son is a list person( he loves stats and such) and is 9 years old. This would be the perfect show for him, but there are needless racy comments in the first episode that will probably keep me from watching more with him.
It's funny, but I was hoping for something we could watch together.

It was fun, but the show seemed more like Sklar brothers want to do cool stuff so lets write a show around it so we get to do it.

Still I'll probably watch them going forward. Decent way to kill an hour.

I thought the exact same thing. My 9 year old likes stuff like this too, but the comments were just unacceptable and unnecessary.

I couldn't make it through the first episode, turned it off.
Seems like something I would love, but it really didn't sync with me. Not sure if it was the comments or the camera style or the content (or all three) but I didn't like it.

I started watching and I'll keep recording, might make a good summer filler show. But, it won't be at the top of my "must watch right away list"

I like the premise of the show but all the off-color remarks and constant pop culture references seems to get in the way of me enjoying it. I would have rather they played it straight without all the attempts at humor.

Watched two episodes and then deleted the Season Pass.

I couldn't make it through the second episode. SP deleted. Shame on History for showing this garbage. The stats were interesting, but the packaging of rude jokes was totally inappropriate.

The first show was better then the second, but neither one had G-rated comedy. I enjoyed it.
