Jim Gaffigan does it again with his new stand-up Mr. Universe. Gaffigan jumps from topic to topic joking around with a varied number of topics. Some of the topics included are McDonalds, family, Disney World, and much more.
Captures a generational moment - young people on the cusp of truly growing up, tiring of their reflexive cynicism, each in their own ways struggling to connect and define what it means to love and be loved.
Welcome to New York a different direction and it works!
You have to love Studios Usa one of the major studios that says we won't be like 20th Century Fox and make almost every show you can think of for the network's. Welcome to New York worked for me for the intro perspective of Gaffigan and Christine. The other stars worked in their limited roles. But it really didn't give away the sugar induced details that will make you return for me. Unlike Bette that seemed hyped this show stuns you because it is different. Studios Usa made Brother's Keeper which I really loved hopefully this show hangs around. Now if the studio sticks behind this show it will work. Remember if the show doesn't work it is the studio. Welcome to New York scored an 88/100 for its first try as it surged 23 notches ahead of Bette.
