"War at Home" Sucks.

Fox's new, uh, "comedy," The War at Home, blows.

It's like they took Titus -- which I enjoyed -- and sucked all the humor and talent out of it, then vomited every cliché possible into the script, mixed liberally with misogyny, homophobia, and alcoholism, and expected it to do well.

Oh, right, and it's so unbelievably awful that it's absolutely loaded with canned laughter. Not even convincing canned laughter, but the completely unbelievable kind. And it's added in after nearly every line.

To channel Simon Cowell: "Dreadful. Absolutely dreadful."

Knowing Fox, though, they'll keep this stinker around for a whole season and can something good. Not that I can think of many new shows on Fox that are good.
