    ABC's fall lineup includes five new dramas and three new comedies, including Caveman, adapted from the popular Geico insurance commercials. Cavemen, a buddy comedy about three modern cavemen trying to find their place in the world. Bill English, Nick Kroll and Dash Mihok star.

    Meh.

    The commercials were cool but, I have a feeling this show won't last.

    I'll be surprised if this pans out, but I'll definitely watch the first one or two episodes.

    Yikes...that was pretty bad.

    I'll still probably check it out because these are some of the best commercials ever, IMO, but that preview was far from promising.

    How stupid. They should have just left them as commercials, now the cavemen are ruined forever.

    I remember reading of this a few months ago. This will not last past 3 episodes.

    I just don't see how they can take some 30 second commercials, with half of them being funny and turning them in a 30 min sitcom.


    EDIT

    Just saw the preview...not even close to funny. The commercials blow this away...what a failure this will be.

    No, and the commercial versions have much better make up FX.

    I'm guessing that was more of a screen test than an actual preview from one of the first episodes.

    If otherwise, you have a point.

    I can't imagine how out-of-touch or brain-dead a studio exec would have to be to allow that clip to be placed on your studio's site as a promo for this show.

    Who looks at that clip and says, "Yes! This will garner enthusiasm for this show!" ???

    Honestly it looks like something a starting network would use to fill in a time slot and hope for the best.

    Like when Fox or WB were starting up.

    The look on John Heard's face screams out "Boy has my career hit rock bottom."

    What's with this photo? I see three cavemen, who for some reason have very attractive girlfriends/wives (but only two?) . . .

    . . . and a random guy holding a cowboy hat?

    :huh:
