Storyline

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.

It was the liberals' fault
17 October 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No matter how many times I watched this show, I never quite understood its point. Since it was obvious that no conversation happened that was not scripted or directed, it was hard to view it as a 'talk' show. It always felt like a poor imitation of the radio program - except this time Rush seemed to try to be more outrageous in order to top the radio show. It didn't work, and only his most ditto-headish followers took the time to watch what they normally could hear while at work or lunch. Because of its poor ratings, most stations threw it into the late night limbo of syndicated sit-com reruns where it continued to lose viewers until Rush finally gave up on it.

Of course, rather than concede failure, Rush blamed the "liberals" at the local stations for its demise.
