Comedian Jim Gaffigan posted a first look at his upcoming eponymous show on his website — it received 500,000 views in the first 48 hours — and it’s just fantastic.
In the episode, Gaffigan, a practicing Catholic who still pokes fun at religion in his act, has to bring home a Bible for his wife.

Some people think he’s too embarrassed to be seen in public with it while others quickly assume he hates gay people.

Great episode. Only about 20 minutes long. Lots of jokes that’ll appeal to religious and non-religious people. Tons of great cameos. Make sure you check it out.
The Jim Gaffigan Show has its formal premiere on TV Land on July 15.
