Imagine for a second you are a TV exec. for Comedy Central and you are
deciding what show to put on your 10:30 Pm Sunday time slot. Along comes
this complete idiot with a show idea where he sits in a chair with a
sidekick and tells horribly unfunny jokes and shows bad skits? If your
the execs from Comedy Central in the late summer of 2001, then you are
missing several key brain cells.
This was the absolute worst show ever to grace the air waves. A
guy names Chris Wylde and his teenage sidekick "Forty" sit on stage and
a lame talk show. His desk is littered with little child's toys and
figurines. (yeah, i know). There's this awful rock band playing in between
commercials and these horrid sketches. Not to mention these 5th rate
that make Conan O'briens' look like America's 50 most inetersting people.
Some shows we may not like, but can tolerate. Even when a large majority
hates a show (there are many anti-Stern and Anti-South park people no
there is always that cult following large or small, always enough to keep
the show running anyway. The Chris Wylde show never came close to having
this. I don't think anyone in this world liked this show. No one could
realte because this guy was not funny. The audience was obviously paid as
they struggled to pretend laugh.
Comedy central had churned out some really awful programming over the
but this takes the taco. Maybe "make me laugh" has a case to
but even it could not sink as far as "Wylde". I bet these episode tapes
destroyed as soon as they exited the VCR at 11PM on sundays. Hopefully we
will never have to endure them again.
Shame on you, comedy Central for showing this nonsense....What was
"Forty"'s deal anyway. some 15-year old Stoner wannabe who sat
in a recliner and erased all dignity previously acquired...I am calling on
anyone out there, ANYONE AT ALL to tell me why they found this show funny.
