    I can say I'm not impressed, and the only reason I watch it is that it's on at least one night at 10:30 so I stumble onto it while waiting for th Daily Show.

    not sure if that's actually praise or not.. :)

    Sure. I think the one thing that can unite all of us despite our disparate political views is that Lil Bush is a pretty weak show. Sort of a watered down South Park with a portion of That's My Bush awkwardly tossed into the mix.

    I really looked forward to it but 15 minutes into the first episode I quit. I can watch almost anything but this is lame.

    I couldn't stand to watch more than 30 seconds of it. Frank Caliendo is about as funny as a botched 37th trimester abortion, so I'm not sure how anyone could have thought it would be any good.

    I would throw out the musical numbers. Other than that, it's not too bad.

    That's my Bush was much, much better and that isn't saying much.

    Yeah, I had hope for this show but couldn't make it through the first episode. Unfunny.

    "That's my Bush" was an awesome show, a great parody of sitcoms more than political satire.

    Li'l Bush looks so stupid I haven't bothered to check it.

    Its just okay. Kind of over the top. Would make for more amusing 3-minute Youtube clips than a whole show.

    It should have stayed there. I could see how it might be tolerable as brief little snippets.

    I have to agree. I watched all six episodes and don't remember laughing. My Bush was a great sendup of sitcoms. (I think the timing was better also. I don't think folks had as strong feelings about Bush back then and just saw it as making fun of the President and sitcoms.)

    Wow, I guess I'm in the minority on this one, I think it's funny - well OK, I think Lil Bush himself is funny, the plots/storylines are pretty lame.

    I love it when he's making fun of the Lil Dems, particularly Lil Al Gore. I also like his one-liners, like when he started the show by saying his favorite ball player was Barry Bonds because Bonds' understands that "just because you cheated doesn't mean you didn't win" :)

    I watched the first episode. I thought the dick cheney biting off the heads of chickens was funny for some reason. The rest was so awful I haven't watched another episode.

    Cheney eating like a circus freak is a continuing joke in the show. I wonder if it was that they were little kids that freaked me out about the show?

    When not even the previews are funny, you know it's a bad show. I gave it a chance and was unimpressed.
