I was only twelve when I watched this show. It was hilarious. It came on at 8:00 on Monday Nights on ABC. It was without a doubt one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. The show had no real commercials and was a brilliant satire for its day. They had a takeoff on all kinds of figures for the day including Bill Clinton George W. Bush and Barbara Bush.
The show was only on for I believe two episodes. Perhaps it was too edgy perhaps it was on at a bad time. All I can say is I laughed my tale off. There were some brilliant moments I still remember. They once voted who was going to be on a postage stamp: the old Elvis Presley or the young Elvis Presley. They did a similar report on who they would pick for a stamp: the black Michael Jackson or the white Michael Jackson.
There was a report that Barbara Bush was trying to disrupt Dan Quayle's campaign for President. Then is panned to Quayle in an interview and church bells kept interrupting him. Then it showed Barbara Bush Ringing the bell. HILARIOUS!! Then they did a takeoff on the commercials about the club. The fake commercial had a man talking about how affective the club is. The camera backed away and he is holding a caveman style club.
This was incredible stuff. I wish there was more satirical television like this. Unfortunately there is not too much satire on television these days.
