I know, and it's such a shame that we can't seem to get it right. We had Politically Incorrect, and then... Oh fuck, what was that show with Colin Quinn... But in both cases the comedians kept slipping into obviously prepared bits. In the end PI switched to more serious guests and debate, and Colin Quinn got cancelled. Paul Provenza's Green Room comes closer, but it's more often about industry nostalgia.

Actually, now that I think about it, what we've really done is relegated that kind of genuine interaction to the realm of the podcast. We have shit tons of comedian podcasts that have exactly the feeling we're talking about, but for some reason we can't successfully transition them to the screen.
