Cavemen.... terrible

I had a school assignment to watch a Tv show that was a flop and evaluate why it may have not been so successful. After reading a lot of reviews and news about this title I came to the conclusion that this show was just flat out terrible. It was based on the geico commercials which in there own right are funny. But you cant base a show off of the success of a commercial. Other problems that arise is that they were accused of being racist saying the cavemen were suggested to be minorities. I wouldn't suggest this show for anyone.

Terrible, terrible, terrible.

I had been looking forward to the cavemen series. I even had my recorder set up so I wouldn't miss the show. What a disappointment for my wife and I. We turned the show off after about 15 minutes because we just couldn't stomach any more of the trash. This is by far the worst show I've watched on TV in a very long time.
