Guy Friends: Paradise Cove 

When: Fridays. Continues through Nov. 20 2009
Price: $5
The featured guests at the show I saw, Vanessa Bayer and Sarah Fineout from improv team Revolver, couldn't steer this improvised sitcom away from astonishingly juvenile material. The comedic styles of the four regulars--two of whom are new to the franchise, now in its fourth season--never meshed. And Connor O'Malley, who almost single-handedly ruined the evening with insistently smutty lines, should be voted off the island. Sloppy tech work--an inconsistently used laugh track, ill-timed pop songs--made the 45-minute production even more dreadful to sit through. An introductory video spoofing opening-credit sequences is funny and well made, but uses the same theme song and concepts from the previous three seasons. --Ryan Hubbard
