Loved it, but I’d kill the studio audience IMO, feels forced vs the producer chatter/laughter from the VICE show. Also, format is great but felt really similar to John Oliver, again just my opinion. I have no doubt they’ll grow into the new format , and it’s great to have them back.

I forgot about the crew speaking directly to them and I'm glad it's still there. Audience is a little jarring but I'll get used to it. Like the neon sign and enjoy what I've seen. Happy they are back

Really strong debut. I'll echo the rest of you in saying that I wish it was an hour long or more often during the week, but this is great.

Meero delivering to the audience felt kind of awkward at first, but even a couple clips in he improved. And I lost it at the Jeter head.

Strong first episode, they didn't really miss a beat and the increase in production is great.

As amazing as ever. Wish we could get this as often as the old show because weekly doesn't seem like enough. But the Podcast and show should suffice.

Them roasting Fatcessa after having him on as the last guest was too great.

yo so with D&M moving to showtime, everyone outside of the US is losing. At least with Vice we could watch on youtube.

Good ep. Can definitely do without the audience laughs. It would be nice to continuing seeing interviews on location every now and then.

Doesn't seem to be a legit way to watch this over here, even the youtube video is blocked

Great premiere.

Shit just realized you could be an audience during a taping of the show but I don't know where to buy tickets.

I think it's easy to forget how poorly so many first episodes in this style go.
People with a way more established history of TV have fallen on their face with the late night format.

So, yeah, this had some rough edges. But damn does it bode well for the future.

there are a plethora of clips form their old Vice show on Youtube to dig through. i'm a little jealous that you get to experience the joys of things like the DJ Envy saga for the first time. a couple personal faves:

Tickets are free and handed out by lottery. They linked to a page to apply a while back.

The first couple minutes of this ep were pretty awkward but they hit a groove after that and it was great.

I gotta say I really don't like the audience or those obvious jump cuts. Kinda not feeling it

Holding out hope that a coworker can hook me up with his showtime subscription.

I’m sure they would publicly hate me, privately know what’s up.

I haven't seen 90% of their stuff and the WoF clip killed me. Is there a link to the Envy clips?
