After the lame 'Garbo-is-coming' style advertising on channel 10, I wasn't expecting much from this show and actually didn't bother watching the first couple of episodes. I finally gave in and watched last weeks episode with Meatloaf, and wow, David Tench Tonight is terrible.
The most problematic thing for me is the guy who voices Tench. The creators really needed to either make David an Australian host, or actually get an American actor to play the part because his accent is horribly inconsistent and his voice sounds more like some idiot is making a prank phone call pretending to be an old woman than an over the top American talk show host. This becomes embarrassingly apparent when there is an actual American guest on the program.
The next thing is the writing. It's obvious that they wanted to create a provocative persona, but the supposedly edgy un-pc jokes fall flat and are unlikely to offend the audience or the guests - who, by the way, often look extremely embarrassed to be on such a pathetic TV show.
All of this combined with the creepy, well repulsive actually, animated face of Tench makes for a boring unsatisfying half hour. I didn't so much as smile once while watching this, and I can't imagine many other people finding this crap funny either.
