Firstly, I don't mind Open Mike, and I have respect for what Mike Bullard is trying to do. But with the show being played on two networks five days a week, with one network playing to at least three times a day (unless you have satellite such as I and therefore have both Comedy channels, in which case it is doubled), there really is no need for a Best Of show. Secondly, most people would say there really is no best of the show. In fact, you can probably fit every really memorable moment on one 90 minute episode. Thirdly, anything that is shown on Open Mike, because of it's exposure, would already be seen by the same people who would watch this edited version which the Comedy Network plays on weekends. It's enough they play "The Warm Up Show" too, but there is no need to waste money giving the public an edited version of something they've already seen or tried not to see in the first place. The only accomplishment that does is remind us that we probably shouldn't be watching so much television. The money would be better spent making another good show or improving the original (which anyone would agree needs improving). My advice is don't bother taking the bridge, the view from the ground is much more scenic.
