A weekly talk/comedy show hosted by Dennis Miller. Each show starts off with a topical monologue typical of evening talk shows. After this, Dennis goes into "The Rant" in which he talks about some subject that bothers him, starting calmly but gradually building into a frothing, expletive-laden fenzy, then ending with "that's just my opinion, I could be wrong." He chats with a guest for a few minutes, then finishes with a news segment similar to his "Weekend Update" role on Saturday Night Live. Written by

Did You Know?
The theme song for all seasons but the last was "Everybody Wants To Rule the World" by Tears For Fears. Miller stated that the show could no longer afford the rights to the song due to budget cuts. The theme in the last season was a short generic rock tune that Miller jokingly referred to as a "gay porn anthem". The song played just before The Big Screen was "Civilized" by Rollins Band.
