Funny guy, standard sitcom
13 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

Norm MacDonald is a funny man. He really shined as Weekend Update anchor on SNL and it was a shame when NBC canned him (especially after seeing the unfunny anchors that followed). He was even funnier when he did the talk-show circuit, where he would always crack up hosts and audiences with his off-the-wall improvisational wit. Now giving him his own show is a great idea, but not if your just using his name and presence without really utilizing his talents.

What they've done here is stick Norm Macdonald in a really run-of-the-mill sitcom. Granted, it may be one of the better sitcoms, but it's a sitcom nonetheless. And if you've got half a brain and have seen the comedies of the past, you'll notice there is nothing new here. Old jokes, old situations, little substance. It's a cookie-cut genre that takes Norm's humor for granted.

If one positive thing has arisen from the series, it has been keeping Norm in the spotlight so he continues to pop up on late-night TV to promote it, therefore setting the stange for classic spontaneous Normisms!
