'Arrested' Lives!

by Tom Bozzo

The best show on television has been renewed! Hooray!!

A big smooch goes from the M.U. (Wisconsin) family to Peter Liguori, Fox Broadcasting President, Entertainment.

I'm pretty excited about it too and I'm kinda surprised. AD's humor is a little too nichey for a mainstream audience. I don't think the show is elitist, but it's definitely not for your average Joe.
 
I found that it took a bit of commitment to get into 'Arrested,' which is probably a lot to expect of a mass audience, esp. considering things like the crude soap-operatic techniques with which reality shows string their viewers along.

Its humor, I'd argue, is actually rather broad, though played through such devices like irony and understatement that seem to be dead.
