Glenn Martin, DDS (on NICKatNITE)

Anyone plan on watching this?

"Glenn Martin, DDS" follows the adventures of traveling dentist, Glenn Martin, and his family. After learning that his favorite childhood park is about to be destroyed, Glenn takes his family�wife Jackie, hormone-addled 13-year-old Conor, power suit-wearing 11-year-old Courtney, Courtney�s overachieving assistant Wendy, and Canine, the family dog�on a cross-country road trip to protest the demolition. Although the protest is ultimately a bust, Glenn and Jackie realize that the trip has brought their family closer together and they decide to keep on traveling. Along the way, Glenn discovers that hitting the road is more complicated than it sounds, and learns through various run-ins (with mobsters, the Amish, and psychotic navigators) that the road often hits back in unexpected and hilarious ways.

Premieres Aug 10th.

Don't take that tone of emoticon with me!
I'll give it a try if and when it's available online.(No cable :( )


Oh, and is this a new direction for NaN to capture some of the Adult Swim crowd, or had they already been showing stuff more risque' than Roseanne since I've watched?
Thank you, Zoners, for the kindness, tolerance, and enlightenment you've shared with me. It may not have been deserved, but it was greatly appreciated nonetheless. Soupy twist.

Definitely a new direction for NickatNite - they want to be edgier and gain that older audience. I think Roseanne is the raunchiest show Nick has ever aired.

Here's an interesting article on the show with Eisner's thoughts along with mention of creator (Celebrity Deathmatch animator, Eric Fogel).

You know what Nick At Nite should do if they want to capture the older audience? They should show reruns of classic TV shows from the 50s and 60s. That would be a good idea.

I know, huh? It's OK I just really hate having a laugh track dictate when I should laugh. Let me decide.
