DVR set. I've heard good things about this. Then again, I'm a comedy-loving dude that's into fantasy football, so this one is probably right up my alley.

I'm the other way around. I don't like sports (fantasy football included) but I've heard good things about this show. On their website, it states
"The League, FX's new original comedy, is about friendship, marriage, parenting, and growing up...or refusing to grow up. Sounds like subject matters will also be focused on things other than fantasy football.

I thought it was OK. It had a lot of dirty language. I'll be watching again next week.

Watched it and liked it for the most part. A heck of really obvious product placement though - DirecTV, Sprint, Bud Light, etc.

This is definitely one that we will continue to watch, but I do have to say it felt like they blew their load all before the first commercial break.

I mean the fingers in the ass while having sex, the kid writing whore with her magnetic letters and the birthday song all had me and my wife crying from laughing so hard. After the first break though there were only a few chuckles here and there.

Hopefully future episodes continue to bring it like they did in the first 10-15 minutes.

anyone know who the actress that plays Meegan is? I'm assuming she won't be in the show anymore anyways, or at least in a limited way, since she isn't even mentioned as a character on the IMDB, Wiki, or main site listing.... I've seen her before, just can't place her....

EDIT: nevermind, it is Leslie Bibb...she didn't have a character listing on IMDB for Meegan....

Good episode tonight. The 'T&A' was good. Ruxin's wife is smokin'. The ending with her tease was..
Jenny found Kevin's forum messages..

I thought last week's episode was better. This week seemed more focused on sports draft. I did like the scene with the dinner table and TV in the background.

Good deal. I think it's good too.
The meat cleaver scare was funny.

Wonder if FX will hack it just like Testees.

These guys are so conceited, immoral, cut-throat, non-p.c., insecure and selfish. Man, is this a FUNNY show or what?

Ha.
I liked the season finale. I did not see a 'ending' though. Was it that ____ (can't think of it right now) made the play-offs and won The League?
They need to show more of the wives. Ruxin's wife is good
