Of all the talk shows, there's only one show that doesn't hesitate to take up such serious issues as teenage prostitution, aliens from outer space or breast implants in the Dick Dietrick style. Written by
Let us consider: 'Friends', one of the unfunniest, blandest "comedies", and I use that term loosely here, ever to grace the small screen, is a huge hit. 'Night Stand Starring Dick Dietrick' is hands down the funniest show in the history of television and barely lasted a season. In fact, this show (a satire of Jerry Springer/ Ricki Lake sleaz-oid talk shows) was so dead-on perfect, middle america probably thought it WAS a sleaz-oid talk show and the jokes sailed right on over their heads. Watching this show with my dad, is the only time I can remember the two of us laughing out loud together until South Park came along. I'm telling you, this show was so funny I almost died suffocating myself laughing so hard.
