The Death of Network TV: "The Class" is unfunny and not gay.

Insipid. Futile. Moronic.

Those are probably the best words I can use to describe the CBS comedy (and I use the term with remorse) The Class.

The characters, half of whom are (I guess) gay, are not believable, the writing is dull, the plot lines thinner than Calista Flockhart. There's nothing good about this show except that it will soon be gone. It is amazing that network executives are so morally and intellectually dead that they would stoop to the depths to which this show plummets.

Then again, this is the network that brought Katie Couric to the nightly news.

Considering the current shape of the networks, The Class actually reaches a new low, and CBS should apologize to all of us.
