A Comedy Central show in which two people, pop-culture phenomena, objects or whatever else are put on "trial" to determine which is the titular Root of All Evil (of that week). Examples; Kim Jong-il vs. Tila Tequila, Beer vs. Weed, Oprah vs. the Catholic Church, Disney vs. Scientology.
The format of the show is Lewis Black playing the "judge" of the court and two rotating comedians play "lawyers", each arguing that the other's subject is more evil than their own.
Tropes featured include:
- Butt Monkey: The late Greg Giraldo appeared in 9 episodes, and only came away with a grand total of two wins during the shows run.
- Take a Third Option: Done at least once.
