TV Tonight: "The Winner" with Rob Corddry

TV Tonight: "The Winner" with Rob Corddry

Though I found him horribly annoying when he first joined "The Daily Show," I eventually warmed up to Rob Corddry and his awkward, mildly pitiful brand of humor. That said, I don't know if Corddry has what it takes to helm his own sitcom, but he'll get a chance to prove himself tonight at 9:30 p.m. when "The Winner" debuts on Fox.

It's got good people behind it — "Family Guy" Seth MacFarlane is the executive producer — and the premise sounds promising: Corddry plays a 32-year-old virgin living through a delayed adolescence. But there are a few things I find troubling, including the fact that the flashback-based series is, for no real reason, set in 1994 and looks like it's trying very hard to be edgy.

I didn't like this show.

It was OK. I'd like to see it when it's been on the air a little longer. It's kinda like Scrubs + 40-year old Virgin.. Needs some work but has promise.

I didn't want to see it, either, but it was "just on" while I was cleaning. I thought it was actually pretty funny! Thought I would be more offended that a grown man is bff with a 12 year old, but they're a good team. Not sure if they actually said WHY he was a millionaire, yet, but I'm interested to find out...will probably try to catch it again.

ALL of the previews I have seen for this show have been so ridiculously NOT funny. I have no urge to tune in for this one.

Looks like it has some promise; Rob Corddry's not my favorite, but he could pull this off.
