|You, sir, are no Ron Swanson.|
Season 2 was much of the same. I mean, there was no reason to fuck with a good thing. Tosh.0 became one of the highest rated Comedy Central shows of all time. The jokes got a little more tasteless and racist but that's fine. You have to push things a little further if you want to stay fresh. They ended season 2 with the cliffhanger of all cliffhangers...would they get Antoine Dodson on for the season 3 premiere. And sonofabitch, they came through.
That segment was fucking brilliant, too. Tosh and Antoine together rapin' errrrrrbody out he-uh. Outstanding. But ironically, I think that this was Tosh.0's "jump the shark" moment. Because the show has not only been bad ever since, but it has been TERRIBLE. Once they got Antoine, there was nowhere else to go but down. Have you SEEN the redemption people recently? Awful. And it doesn't help that Tosh makes the redemptions more about his jokes than the retardery of the internet idiots. I admit, the "wrestling is real to me dammit" guy tonight has me intrigued, but I will proceed with caution.
Wait a minute, I just realized that only Grumpy probably gets what jumping the shark actually means since he was in his late 50's when Happy Days was on the air. Let me explain it another way then. You know how idiots tell you that The Office is a good show? Well, it isn't. It's MAYBE the 4th best Thursday night show on the world's worst network . So what happened? Michael Scott has always been a buffoon. Dwight has always been a beet farmer/serial killer. Creed has always been awesome. So how did the show turn to shit exactly? They decided to marry Jim and Pam and thus make two of the five main actors on the show meaningless and shitty and completely objectionable. It was never cute. Their marriage RUINED the show. In general, weddings ruin every TV show. If you ever find yourself writing a show, never have anyone get married. Period. And The Office will never recover from that.
Same thing happened with Tosh. Something just isn't right anymore and the show feels...off. I can't quite put my finger on why or how I came to this conclusion, but here I am anyway. Once Antoine gay-ed the show up, the ceiling was finally reached. The racist jokes aren't as funny. The 20 second spot produces no laughs. They seem to have run out of funny/stupid web content. He laughs at his jokes at a clip that would make Jimmy Fallon blush. He comes off more as a douche than anything now. In short, IT IS OVER.
Yeah, that's right. I'm on the "Tosh.0 Sucks" bandwagon now. Hop aboard. Search your feelings and you will know that what I say is true. This show is slipping and you all know it. This Douche Lord will probably squeeze out a couple more seasons and showcase his stupid fashion trends, and hell, I'll probably still watch. Just know that in three years, some other asshole will show up on Comedy Central and say this:
"We'll be right back with more Tosh.0".
Can we go the whole week without really talking about sports? Perhaps. Ron Swanson yesterday, Tosh today...let's see how the rest of the week goes. I AM VERSATILE, DAMN YOU.
