Ever notice how the under graduates that were the "D Generation"/"Late Show" have become the type of performers they themselves used to parody? Again we see it with "The Nation" and the sad plight of Mick Molloy.
After much hype, Molloy's return to regular television was disastrous for reasons seemingly obvious to everyone but Mick and the Nine Network. No wonder PBL are getting out of television! The once laconic likable larrikan with the old Holden and a pack of Winnie Blues at the ready is dead. What Molloy has become here is a dapper "media friendly" talk show host who sadly fails to display any rapport with his regular contributors and speaks with the comic timing of Prime Minister John Howard.
This show is just stale and the format is so ill conceived that it's choice of subjects for discussion fails to engage it's intended demographic. Whilst "The Chaser" can have it's disappointing moments, you're at least certain they're not going to resort to Paris Hilton impersonations! And regular Jackie O is the type of "celeb" that Molloy once would've satirised, not hang on her every word for the latest on Lindsey Lohan! Please bring back Nine's original Mick Molloy Show with the real Mick Molloy in it. I don't know who the Molloy hosting this corporate rubbish is, and I don't want to.
Week Two: Even worse
