Last Comic Standing
is one of those shows I have a serious love/hate relationship with. I keep coming back for more, even though nine times out of 10 I'm left feeling disappointed by our time together. Hoping to put some spice back into the show and well... maybe make it... I don't know.. funny? NBC has decided to have some of their past and current stars help out scouting the talent. Familiar faces from Cheers
, like George Wendt and John Ratzenberger, along with the huggable and adorably funny NewsRadio
star Dave Foley, will join some others during the audition process. All I can say is "Thank God." Now these people are actually
funny, unlike host Bill Bellamy who really does nothing for me. Hopefully the celebs will be able to recognize some talent in other people. And then, fingers crossed for this because it is a long shot, America will keep the clever and funny people on
the show instead of voting them off early on. I still don't get really get last season's one-note winner Jon Reep. Anyway. Hopefully this judging twist will keep me from breaking up and making up with this show several times throughout the season, and give me hope for a nice long future together.
