    Has anybody else seen this show? It is absolutely hilarious.

    The show is in moot court format, featuring Black presiding over two people or issues going against each other like defendants and plaintiffs in a trial, with a series of comedians and guests, such as Greg Giraldo and Patton Oswalt, playing lawyers making their case why something (i.e. YouTube, beer, Oprah, etc.) is the "root of all evil."

    I was just telling a friend about this show the other day. I think it's one of the more clever things I've seen on TV. And just looking at Lewis Black makes me crack up.

    I haven't watched last nights yet, but I've seen the rest.

    I also haven't disagreed with a single verdict yet. I do feel bad for Giraldo though, I think he's 0-3 or 0-4.
