Great Content, Terrible App
Comedy Central is packed with great shows and stand-up. Don’t get me wrong, if you want to watch quality shows, get this app. But the actual app itself seems like it was developed before iPhones were put on the market. There is no search bar for shows, so you have to scroll through a list of seemingly hundreds of shows to find the one you’re looking for. Autoplay does not work between seasons (s2 e1 will not play after the last episode in s1) if it even does work between normal episodes (which it sometimes struggles to do). The ads are also a serious problem. Comedy Central only has a small assortment of mainly local ads that it will play over and over again. For a while, the same 15 second Pizza Hut ad was looped 4 times in a row during every commercial break in a show. I am also having difficulty watching some shows. I am unable to watch all of season 6 of Reno 911. I get automatically dropped into season 5 and an episode starts playing, but when I try to scroll over to other seasons on the season scroll bar, it won’t change from the list of season 5 episodes for me to watch.
All in all, it seems like developers were too busy prepping for Y2K to create a usable interface.

Almost seems like a joke
The Comedy Central app, although “functional” seems to have huge technological oversights and issues that seem like just lapses in the creators intelligence. Why is it that every time I want to go watch a show that is not on the front page of the app, I have to scroll through the entire catalogue just to find my one show? Why am I not able to pin a show, or have a section that says continue watching? It seems like a complete de-emphasis of the rest of the available content available on the app and is a chore that plagues even getting to an episode. My second major complaint lies within the placement of the ads on the video. I understand that to make money on their app they need to run ads, but why on earth is it the same cycle of terrible ads and at such terrible points in the video. A normal video that was 4 ad breaks would space them out so that you watch roughly 25% of the video, then there’s an ad break, but with this app, there are no ads for the first half of the video, and then in the second half. Even if the defense is that they want to align the ads with the commercial breaks, the absolute slog it is to stick through an entire video makes you think if anyone who developed the app even watched a single episode using the app. In conclusion, this app works, it does the bare minimum, but there’s so much that is done wrong that could be so easily corrected it’s frustrating to see such oversights.

Great content / integrations :: not a joy to use
Look if you are here, you want CC's content if you are here and it's available and available immediately. It's wonderful, use it. You can steam on device and to ur casting devices.
When you do... If you never need to do more than play, u r still good.
However If you want to rewind or fast forward this is where the frustration lies. Why two stars off for that? Well because there are many UI enhancements that could be used here. To me simply not having the time in video the marker is when you slide is an awfully huge oversight in the user's experience. Even simply a "back 15 seconds" arrow. Imagine the frustration of having to blindly bounce into a video and watch 2 minutes of ads multiple times just to find where you left off. Makes me feel that the main use case has a sev 1/2 bug and shouldn't last more than one release.
