So far, it's a mixed reaction.

It's funny, cheeky, and has foot planted firmly in cheek. I also like the actors and the characters are sharply drawn and well written.

What I didn't expect is that a good deal of the hilarity is crass, juvenile, potentially degrading to women, and so overtly sexual in nature.

I know for a fact that both my ex-wife and GF would not find this humorous at all and both would very likely find it insulting.

Definitely enough to keep watching so far - but I hope they dial down the sexual humor a bit and try to find more funny dialogue with the fantasy football stuff, or just daily life stuff. If not, I might lose interest. Potty humor and sexual humor can be funny in small doses, but a little goes a long way for me.

The good news is, I'm a man and some of it is funny - although slightly uncomfortable at times.

My rating so far (based on the number of players on a NFL roster) is 38.
I watched about 30 seconds of the first episode because it had J.J. Watt in it. I realized I wasn't going to like the humor and decided to turn it off instead.
