Moment of Truth
That 70's Show
I wish they would still show the Carson Comedy Classics on a routine basis. Johnny was and always will be the best.
I think people tend to gloss over the dark areas of the Carson regime. For instance, no one ever talks about the frequent guest hosts. Johnny would take a powder to go watch Wimbledon or divorce a wife named Joan, Joanne or Joanna, and we'd be treated to a week of John Davidson behind the desk. Oh, the horror! Sure, sometimes he'd give us a gem like Bob Newhart, but it's the stints by the John Davidsons of the world that haunt me to this day.
I liked having the guest host over just showing reruns like they do now.
MST3000 & Titus are the ones I miss.
Yep, I'm bummed about that too. Really enjoyed the show. No sense to me either.
Anyone remember "Nichols" from the early 70's? James Garner and Margot Kidder. I don't think it even made it through a whole season, but it was really funny. Apparently it was too vulgar for its time, and there was no laugh track.
But for every show that is cancelled before its time, there are probably 10 that are left way beyond their best before date.
I'm going to have to add Futurama and King of the Hill...didn't like King of the Hill when I was younger, but definitely appreciate it now.
I like that episode on King of the Hill where the Asian guy looses his job and starts driving an El Camino. Then starts hanging out with a bunch of hicks. They break into the record store to get the new Trace Adkins CD... the voice for one of the hicks... Trace Adkins...
I'm going to say the old Nick cartoon "Hey Arnold." It was never "officially" canceled, but the show ended on a cliffhanger and setup for a movie that never came. Why do I bring up an old childrens cartoon? Because it was one of the best works of animation to come out of the states ever. Everything about that show was spectacular, the writing, characters, music, really just a good show. In addition, the 15 minute episode format worked really well as a story telling method. That, and how often do you see a loyal, nice guy, problem solving pacifist portrayed as such a cool guy as the main character?
That and, of course, Firefly.
Dog Training-The Barbara Woodhouse Way
Pee Wee's Playhouse.
It was so good my dad even watched it with me when I was a kid.
Futurama is coming back to Comedy Central.
Buddy Lee - I think Pee Wee used to air on Adult Swim (Cartoon Network) for a while.
That was one of my kids' favorite shows - and one of the rare one's my wife and I could watch. We actually liked that show quite a bit. Move it Football Head!
I agree. A week of bad interviewing of new guests is still better than watching a rerun of a show just done the week or two prior.
I watched Pee Wee's Big Adventure with my 15 year old son. He was rolling on the floor. Had no idea or concept of Pee Wee.
Oh, and BRING BACK INVADER ZIM!!!
I heard Pee Wee is getting a new show. I don't know how good it will be without Phil Hartman though, I think they wrote together a lot.
yahooo! i thought they had killed it
