Storyline

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 Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

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.

Funny, but too short
15 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

This show is much better than Jay Leno, David Letterman, and Conan O'Brien because it's on HBO. On HBO, there's no limits. You can do anything you want on HBO. The only problem I have with this show is it's only on 30 minutes. I think the show should be on longer than that. What about 60 minutes??
