    Chevy Chase has struck me as being an asshole for years. Since at least the time of his talk show.

    Chase has been a known asshole since his time on Saturday Night Live in the 1970s.

    "It's not like I am working with the great innovators of all time, but at the same time, they are my friends."

    That's an amusing line, considering he's easily the worst part of what is otherwise a fantastic show.

    You'd have to wonder what he would say if he was in a badly made unfunny sitcom.

    This.

    Oh, well, Chevy, I'm sure they'll let you cameo in the Vacation reboot.

    Dan Harmon said in an interview that he never wanted Chevy Chase. Chase heard about the show, demanded he be given a part, and the NBC brass wanted a high-profile celebrity on the show to promote it. Chevy Chase was the only actor who didn't have to audition... even Joel McHale auditioned for his role.

    I don't like Community and gave up on it after 3 episodes but really the lowest form of television is "reality" tv not sitcoms.

    Not surprising coming from Chase. He's always had the "I'm better than everyone" attitude.

    "... why he made the leap from movies to television"?!? :lol:

    How about the leap from almost complete obscurity to television? Ignoring a couple of films that flopped in the early 1990s, you have to go back to 1989 and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation to get to when he was really making any movie worth talking about.

    As far as the lowest form of lowest form of television, I do agree with Gary Mitchell about 'reality" TV being the lowest form of television..... unless you count Chase's late night talk show, which lasted only a few weeks until it spiraled in for a smoking crash landing.

    This fellow is far too full of himself for his own good!

    This is the same Chevy Chase that did "Caddyshack 2", right?

    Which is a shame considering that the last few episodes of the last few seasons tried to redeem his character. But when he went off the deep end last year, it was pretty much over.

    When was the last time Chevy Chase was relevant to anyone about anything?

    After we saw the ads for Funny Farm in 1988, all the kids in class were slapping each other in the head and screaming "Mosquito!"

    We were 11 going on 12.

    It became very clear to me some time in the second season that they just had no idea where to take his character. That is true of a few other characters, but it is especially notable with Pierce.

    What a tool. I really only like him in the Vacation, Christmas Vacation, and Fletch. Not impressed with his work in anything else, and he's the weakest part of Community.
