Review: 'Testees'

THE SHOW "Testees," FX, Thursdays at 10:30 p.m.

REASON TO WATCH You're on your own there, friend.

WHAT IT'S ABOUT Peter and Ron are a couple of hapless, hopeless dudes who are so broke they go back to work at what may be the worst job in the world - test subjects for a company, Testico, that makes products to help alleviate penile dysfunction and, umm, what have you. Tomorrow, Peter - played by Steve Markle, who directed the '04 doc "Camp Hollywood" and appears in Comedy Central's "Kenny vs. Spenny" - and Ron (Jeff Kassel) forge ahead with the experiment, though they are envious of another testee, Larry (Kenny Hotz, also of "Kenny vs. Spenny," plus the Kevin Smith-helmed comedy "Zack & Miri Make a Porno," out later this month).

BOTTOM LINE What can I say about "Testees"? It's a vile, vulgar beast - another sign of the coming apocalypse, and another one of those end-of-western-civilization comedy bromances. It's horrible, horrible, horrible, and you will hate yourself for laughing - although I'm afraid you will.

GRADE D- (for sensitive, right-thinking, discerning, intelligent human beings who have a life)


GRADE A (for anyone who worships at the altar of Seth Rogen, who thinks "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is getting a little soft, who's counting the days to "Zack and Miri").
