Jiminy Glick, a character first introduced on the The Martin Short Show now has his own show. His gross incompetence and clueless confidence shine in conversations with various celebrities. There's also an opening monologue with Glick that usually involves his bandleader Adrien VanVoorhees (Michael McKean), plus commercial and movie parodies featuring other characters. Written by
[after Jiminy describes his sex life]
That's great. I always thought that was a whole front and you were gay, but that's, you know, just what I've heard.
Now why, isn't that interesting coming from a 44-year-old bachelor.

Primetime Glick is one of those shows that you look forward to all week.
From Adrian's opening line "Am I the only one who needs a Glick fix?" the show never ceases to keep me in stitches.
Martin Short is excellent at keeping the laughs coming a mile-a-minute. The wacky character of Jiminy never allows for the celebrity interviews to slow down or get dull, and the celebrities "play along" very well, although they often have to hold back from breaking into hysterics.
One of my favorite parts of the show, which no one has mentioned so far is "Jiminy's home movies" where we see "home movies" from Jiminy's personal life, usually involving his relationship with Dixie, his alcoholic and clinically depressed wife.
It's a brilliant show, from beginning to end, and I hope it lasts for many seasons.
