Series cast summary:
 Himself (6 episodes, 1993-1994)


The conservative talk show host mixes his own monologue with actual news footage, viewer videos, occasional phone calls, and rarely, guests. Nick Africano gathers public information from the streets of New York, while "Our Man in Washington" gathers material from media figures and politicians. "Our Woman in Washington" was added to the show when the elderly reporter yelled at Clinton "everything's going down the drain! Is that true?" and graciously accepted the semi-regular role. Often members of the crew would get on stage and do their thing, frequently Debra Phillips, with whom Rush would carry on arguments about such topics as "When is a hug sexual harassment?" Limbaugh terminated the show in 1996 after deciding the half-hour format, and its burial at the wee hours of the night was no longer an effective medium.

The predecessor of right wing TV
31 August 2005 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

The predecessor of right wing TV. Before fox news, and Lou Dobbs, TV had Donahue and a vast amount of Liberals on the air. I was surprised there were no right wing shows before this, because there is a right wing market out there. There are conservatives in political office, someone has to be willing to watch the show. I remember the early to mid 90's it was very politically correct, and that is what made the show such a shock, and caught a political backlash. There were some left wing slow balls that Rush hit right out of the park. Before Rush and political debate comments would go unchecked. Statements like midnight basketball would solve inner-city crime was laughable. If such a simple and cheap solution would solve such a complex problem there would be open gyms everywhere. Other ideas like it was funny when that guy got his penis cut off from that women was challenged. Rush said what if the reverse happened to a women would it still be funny this is attempted murder. If someone loots or rapes a child they are the victim and it is society's fault and the criminal has no accountability. We laugh at such unchecked journalism now, but back then Rush was viewed as a radical. Journalism is much more responsible now, but not always. I did not agree with all of Rush's comments like the environment is indestructible, or with free trade, and sometimes Rush's actions hurt more than helped. Years of success means he's doing something right. I just wish TV would have more shows that argue ideas instead of the Springer/reality dumbing down of society.
