I know I speak for Marty when I say that “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” is the best show to ever appear on television. Say what you will about “Seinfeld” or “I Love Lucy,” but I never saw milk shoot from a man’s nipple on either of those shows.
Anyway, it’s safe to assume that the writers for Saturday Night Live agree with the above statement, given that they seem to have (kinda) ripped off Tim and Eric in the season premier over the weekend.
