    My wife agreed to watch Cavemen once with me, and immediately tried to reduce the three leads to existing sitcom characters.

    "So, is that guy the Chandler, that guy the Joey and that guy the Ross?"

    Um, no. But, then I thought, well, they probably mimic some archetypical character types we have already seen. Somebody mentioned Big Bang Theory and the two leads are Oscar and Felix, The Odd Couple. That worked.

    Help me figure out who the Cavemen are.

    This does bring up an interesting question for me. Are these actors anyone we know from other shows or is this their first major gigs? I'd like to see what they look like without all the makeup. Anyone know of these people before they hit "Cavemen"?

    Blame the studios.

    They would have been cancelled anyway...

    According to IMDB, one is the guy from the Raisin Bran Crunch commercials (the one who keeps getting fired by his boss but stays at his job because the cereal he's eating makes so much noise that he can't hear his boss firing him), and another was Jimmy Olsen in Superman Returns.

    (I think ABC is trying to pretend that they're real Neanderthals - I can't find any information on the actors at the show's page on the ABC website, and selecting "bios" brings up the character biographies.)

    I've only managed to catch the show a couple of times, but I did recognize (and someone posted here previously also) that one of them (with the glasses) is a regular commentator on VH-1's Best Week Ever.

    Has this show been canceled? Not that I'm surprised, but I hadn't heard that.

    I haven't seen anything about that either. Could be one of those shows they just stop making. :)

    I for one would like to see more of it.

    Is it so easy to watch a caveman can do it?
