TV Tonight: "Cavemen" and "Carpoolers"

TV Tonight: "Cavemen" and "Carpoolers"

Tonight's the night we've all been waiting for: the official premiere of "Cavemen"! I'm sorry, was that too much excitement?

Truth be told, I am actually curious to see the first episode of "Cavemen" tonight, if only because it's been totally revamped from the episode ABC sent to critics this summer. The network didn't send out versions of this new episode, so we're all in the dark. And while holding back screeners is not typically a good sign (it even prompted Time's TV critic to launch an ironic High Quality Show Alert!), maybe ABC just wanted to keep it quiet so we'll be blown away by the subtle humor and realistic depiction of being an outsider in modern society. Who knows?

The show is paired with "Carpoolers," a series I surprised myself by kinda-sorta liking when I saw the pilot. I really think this is one that could go either way, either being goofily great or painfully stupid. I'll give it a few episodes, at least, if only to watch TJ Miller, whose very presence on screen makes me chuckle.

Interestingly, ABC — which has made its name recently with female-centric shows like "Grey's Anatomy," "Desperate Housewives" and "Dancing with the Stars" — is way into promoting the manliness of these two shows. To watch their "man date" music video promo, just

I didn't watch Carpoolers, but I LOVED Cavemen. It was funny as hell and completely ridiculous.

omg, Cavemen's not even 10 minutes into the show....and I already love it. Unexpected! "R.Kelly, get out of the closet!" haha. It helps that one of my fav comediens, Nick Swardson, is in the show too. Another lovely unexpected surprise! Here's to keeping it up, Cavemen. ;)

I had no intention of watching Caveman, but the dude was on the View in character and I laughed out loud, so I may watch it.

I can't get through a Caveman commercial, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to watch a full show, but I know I'll tune in just out of curiosity. Maybe the lack of hype is actually a good tactical move to get people like me to watch.
