Both Lone Star and J.Lo's careers got lengthened a tiny bit today. Way to hustle, guys.
Today might be the first time I've gotten excited about any new shows all year.
Despite the debacle that is Million Dollar Password, I'm trying to remain optimistic about the fact that they are planning a remake of Match Game for TBS. But if I see spotlights and intense mood music and glitz with levels of money that the contestants can earn by answering questions correctly, I'm so out of there. What I want is a cheesy set, a skinny microphone and Sarah Silverman making Rashida Jones blush while Super Dave Osbourne and Norm MacDonald sit around making lame jokes about wanting to eff Matt Damon or Jimmy Kimmel for that matter. That is what I would call a good time. Comedian Andrew Daly of Semi-Pro "fame" is hosting this potential nightmare in the making and to me that's the worst thing I've heard all day. I didn't actually see Semi-Pro but just hearing that Daly is a comedian makes me nervous. The great thing about Gene Rayburn was that he was charming, but didn't go out of his way to crack jokes, he left that to the panelists and he was just the straight man who laughed at everything, but still kept the ship moving ahead. Hopefully Daly can fill those massive shoes, because in my mind, the host is what will make or break this show. Still, I'll watch, of course, I mean, if only to see what answer Sarah Silverman puts for this one: "The hotdog vendor put the meat in between the ____."
