Sneak peek at ‘Cavemen’ not encouraging

Cavemen Bill at Make the Logo Bigger has unearthed a clip of ABC’s new sitcom Cavemen, based on the Geico commercials, and wonders if the series could make history by being “yanked halfway through the first show.” It is painful to watch. Bill laments that the actors from the ads are gone—they’ve been replaced by newcomers Nick Kroll, Dash Mihok and Bill English, whom you may know from T-Mobile’s popular “Secret Lovers” ad, in which he plays the betrayed friend. The only marginally recognizable name in the cast is John Heard, who apparently has fallen on hard times.
