lame talkshow, recycled guests, cheap comedy.., 7 May 2007
Author: BdR76 from Netherlands

"Jensen!" is a Dutch late night talkshow modeled after American shows like "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" or "Late Show with David Letterman". It starts with an opening monologue, some comedy bits and then one or two guests. While the American talkshows can be entertaining and glamorous, Jensen is just cheap and lame.

The first problem with Jensen is the host, Robert Jensen. In American talkshows the host is usually a stand-up comedian, like Conan O'Brien or David Letterman, who know how to entertain and really put on a show. Robert Jensen is nothing like that, he became famous by harassing dutch celebrities and making prank phone calls on his radioshow. He's uncharismatic, laughs at his own jokes, makes inappropriately lewd comments and takes cheap shots at his guests.

The second problem is the guests. Occasionally there will be an interesting or famous person, but most of the time the guest's name sounds only vaguely familiar. Some people who appear very frequently are Herman (Dutch Idols reject), Kelly (transvestite from the third Dutch Big Brother series), Kim Holland (Dutch Porn star), all not very classy to say the least. The Netherlands is a small country and there simply aren't enough celebrities to fill five shows a week. Sometimes a guest has clearly got nothing interesting to say at all, for example some Britney-Spears-fan who shaved her head just like Britney, Jensen spent about 10 minutes on her..

Another problem is the comedy. The quality isn't very good to put it mildly. For example, they show bloopers from live gameshows (belspelletjes) and pictures or movie clips copied from the internet (you know, those e-mails you sometimes get from friends or colleagues), which I think is really cheap. Whenever they do create something original, it's usually footage from a news item with added sound effects or stretched faces or something like that.

In short, this is an awful talkshow, how anyone can find this garbage entertaining is beyond me.
