FERRELL’S ‘EASTBOUND AND DOWN’ DISAPPOINTS
Not exactly a leadoff base-hit for HBO’s new “Eastbound and Down”. From “The Live Feed“:
The premiere of HBO’s southern-fried comedy “Eastbound and Down” did a belly flop Sunday night, losing 40% of its lead-in from “Flight of the Conchords.” The Will Ferrell/Adam McKay-produced “Eastbound” was seen by only 671,000 viewers and drew a 0.3 rating.
Did anyone watch it? Did you like it? It had its moments, but it was over-the-top crass. I understand that the lead character is supposed to be that way, but I don’t really need to hear an F-bomb every 5 seconds for something to amuse me. I actually don’t need to hear it at all.
