McCourt's was the first big success of Channel 101's first creators to enter prime time from outside Los Angeles. Aaron Yonda and Matt Sloan had, previously, been more of a favorite among fellow 101 artists than among audiences, unable to get votes even with the ingenius Uncle Jimmy's Fuck Farm. They broke into the mainstream with the very simple concept of the daytime courtroom reality show. On paper, it's not exactly a House of Cosbys level invention, but thanks to hysterical performances and keen editing, it proved impossible to watch without laughing. McCourt's ran out of steam on episode three during a month of merciless housecleaning on the part of the live audience.
