Maybe I was wrong about Just For Laughs

After last week’s premiere of the ABC version of Just For Laughs Gags, I pointed out audiences were highly critical of the show.

Now, after its second week, the press is getting better. With 8 million viewers, it represented ABC’s best summer launch since 2005. (That doesn’t say much, considering how ABC has been at the back of the pack lately.) Now ABC is talking about this being a long-term thing.

Could this be a hit? Is dialogue overrated on American TV?
