'The Comedians' on FX

In The Comedians, Billy Crystal plays a comedy legend who is reluctantly paired with Josh Gad, an edgier up-and-coming star, in an unfiltered, behind-the-scenes look at a fictional late night sketch comedy show where egos and generations collide. Stephnie Weir stars as “Kristen Laybourne,” the anxiety-ridden producer behind The Billy & Josh Show who frequently finds herself caught in the middle of Billy and Josh's arguments, Matt Oberg stars as “Mitch Reed,” the show’s head writer, and Megan Ferguson stars “Esme McCauley,” a no-nonsense production assistant. Together they spend most of their time managing the egos of their two stars and the generational divide that keeps them from ever fully seeing eye-to-eye.

Larry Charles (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld), Matt Nix (Burn Notice), and Ben Wexler (Community, Arrested Development) are Writers and Executive Producers of The Comedians, along with Crystal. Carl Molinder and John Nordling also serve as Executive Producers. Charles directed the pilot. Josh Gad is serving as Co-Executive Producer. The half-hour, single-camera comedy is produced by FOX 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.

I will definitely give this series a considerable chance, mainly because it has the venerable Larry Charles behind it. That being said, I've thus far found Josh Gad woefully unfunny in everything I've seen him in, and I never cared much for Billy Crystal.

Can't say I've seen anything in the previews that looks remotely funny. Crystal is okay but Gad is like low rent Zack G, sorry can't spell his last name, both take themselves too seriously.

Tonight is the series premier. I'm not sure about this show, it looks too silly. Almost obnoxious looking.

I did not laugh that much. There was a couple funny situations but overall it was just OK. I'll tune in next week to see where it goes.
