Trivia

Several segments were not aired due to controversial subject matter: - A segment about Fred Phelps and his anti-gay group "God Hates Fags" who protest the funerals of homosexuals. Moore confronts the group in a pink RV filled with gay men. The segment was released on the videotape compilation TV Nation: Volume Two (1997). Moore later confronted Phelps with the RV again in his show The Awful Truth (1999). - An interview with Christian abortion abolitionist C. Roy McMillan who declared that deadly force against abortionists, the Supreme Court and President Bill Clinton would be justified. NBC claimed they only pulled the segment because the airdate was during the holiday season (December 28) and promised to air the segment at a later date. But NBC later cancelled the show and the segment never aired. The US Secret Service investigated the tape of the interview. - A segment about small-size condoms was pulled because NBC feared it would "lose affiliates in the South" due to the repeated use of the word "condom". When the show moved to Fox, the network agreed to air it but later changed their minds. The segment was released on the videotape compilation TV Nation: Volume One (1997). See more »

Entertaining but...
23 February 2002 | by (Augusta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

That's about all one can say for this twice-failed TV series which had talent behind it but unfortunately most of the talent had nothing to do with the creator, Michael Moore. He is notorious for his hypocrisy on the "working man" (few if any walked away from this show saying that it was a good "working experience") and all in all, a one-trick pony who has since fallen deeply, deeply in love with himself and made some of the most insensitive remarks about 9/11 on record. An entertaining show, yes, but only because of the real talent involved (I'm thinking Janeane Garofalo and a few others). C
