Fall Preview: Check out the must-watch new shows
But most of the time his caveman-like ranting makes his character -— and several others in this fall's new crop of shows that share his feelings — seem more like buffoons. Or, to quote a reporter at Monday's Television Critics Association fall TV previews, d-----bags.
"Well, that was the working title, actually," Allen joked. "Somebody's already got it.
