The best show you've never heard about is returning tonight for its second season. "Campus Ladies" which gets no love, no hype, no nothing because they are cursed with being on the Oxygen (The Oh!) Network is not only the best show no one talks about, but it was one of the best new shows to debut last season.

Even the premise is funny: two middle aged women decide to turn their backs on housewifery in favor of college. They live in the dorms and do what normal college freshman women do: make out with boys, bathe in the communal shower, drink and do drugs, mention Fark, and try to rush a sorority.

What makes this show so good is not just the sharp and consistently witty scripts, but the attitude of the lead characters which is "yeah we know we're not 19, but so what?" The attitude is contagious with some and appalling to others. That's where the hilarity ensues.

Above, please enjoy today's 4:20 Video, which is a series of outtakes from season one. And trust us, if you watch one full episode from last year's offerrings (we can't vouch for this season.. yet) you will be hooked. The problem is finding the Oh! channel each week, so if you like it Season Pass that sucker on your TiVo or you will miss out.
