The League: One NFL Lockout Away from Being Television’s Best Comedy

Season Two of The League ends in an ominous darkness. Ruxon (Nick Kroll) won the league and blacked out the Sun. Holding the Shiva over his head, he taunts the losers with his masturbation fantasies. Taco (Jon Lajoie) cries out, “The league is doomed.” This could have meant a myriad of things but at the time it felt like an allusion to the looming NFL Lockout. Tomorrow night, The League is set to premiere its third season with the NFL season very much happening; however, I can’t help but think about how great the show would be if it wasn’t.
