I think they do a more than fine job tbh.
I actually don't hate them. Well let me rephrase that, I don't hate Lon. I can't stand Norman Chad. His brand of humor is so blah, especially when he repeats the same lame ass jokes about his many wives/divorces and the infamous, "I think they're the Demon Deacons." I would be far less likely to criticize if he would just come up with some new material.
