Storyline

1992 and 1993 saw great changes in late-night talk shows: Jay Leno took the place of Johnny Carson, David Letterman switched networks and time slots, and Chevy Chase and newcomer Conan O'Brien started their own shows. After the dust cleared from the greatly-hyped "talk-show wars", Chase emerged as the undisputed loser. While the show's format differed little from that of its competition, and a star of Chase's caliber had no trouble finding well-known guests, the show simply failed to resonate with viewers, and ground to a humiliating halt as it was finally pulled off the air in mid-show.

Chevy Chase became Merv Griffin with this show, minus the class
21 October 2005 | by (South Florida) – See all my reviews

When I was in 8th Grade, Chevy Chase was a hero of mine in 1976. Despite all the hype and support of the fledging FOX Network, "The Chevy Chase Show" revealed Chevy Chase as a petty man who had become what he once mocked.

The Goldie Hawn interview is a legend of bad taste. I remember Dan Aykroyd being a guest on the show. At least Aykroyd provided some dignity to his old co star. Aykroyd sang "Rubber Biscuit." Chase kept saying, "Boy we used to have a good time." And at point, Chevy Chase went from cool to Merv Griffin!

Given his public meltdowns as of late, we have come to see that Chevy Chase's source of comedy was not cleverness, but self loathing. Like his old SNL writer, mean spirited humor does not appeal to individuals beyond the 8th Grade.
