I THOUGHT THE SHOW WAS GREAT
28 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't agree with the other user's comments and thought

the show was very entertaining and fast-paced. Brett Butler did most of the writing and did an acceptable job for the skits. At least we had a chance to see a real variety show once more. The variety show format was already dead but was revived for a short time with Dolly. I have the entire series on video and still enjoy watching it from time to time. It

sure beats anything else on TV these days, at least in my opinion. Maybe that's why it didn't last longer - it

didn't have any sex or violence.
