Lamest of the lame
15 December 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I expected much, much more from Steven Colbert and am shocked he would stoop to such a level.

Watching this was beyond painful - perhaps he meant to act over the top and ridiculous, but if that is the case it just came off as condescending and fake.

If I were a religious person I'd probably be offended.

This was just a stupid waste of time and it's amazing to me that anyone found it funny.

I'm sure a talent such as Colbert could have put together a funny Christmas/Hannukah special that wasn't so boring. Were the writers on strike again? That would explain a lot.
