Tuesday, 25 September 2001 : "TV"TV-related frivolity:
I watched the premiere of The Ellen Show last night. Rating: two out of ten, or "painful" (particularly when compared to the laugh-out-loud episode of Everybody Loves Raymond which came before it). It reminded me of various Bill Cosby sitcom episodes where he was essentially doing a routine and no one reacted like a real human to all the funny-ha-ha things he said; Ellen's jokes, insults, etc. were apparently only hearable by the audience, not by her co-stars. Good sitcoms aren't like that.
Cloris Leachman was good though.
Daily Show tonight: CNN's Aaron Brown. He's getting much more interesting guests than he used to.
West Wing fans: Read first-hand about the experiences of an extra on the show.
