In all, tonight's show was quite funny. We continued our series of funny and disturbing moments from TV news with clips of CNN's coverage of the baby with a second head, a reporter talking about "stoned people", and James Brown being very incoherent. It was followed by a older Japanese man telling a story about bodily functions gone wrong, a very long piece on George Harrison, the classic clip of James Brown being out-of-it on Sonya Live, and the creepy pediatrician talking on "Regis & Kathy Lee" about Kathy Lee Gifford's breastfeeding habits. The callers really contributed tonight too, especially during our James Brown imitation contest. The show ended with another news clip, a caller on MSNBC that imitated a NASA official during the Columbia disaster and got off a Howard Stern prank.
This week was a prop-free show; the clips and our commentary on them made it work. We do have some funny shtick coming in the next few weeks, but its nice to have material that's strong enough to work on its own.
