Mediocre POS
21 July 2015 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This show is a weak reboot of the Australian show. It might have been better if Daly didn't play it as a fake character and actually performed some of the acts depicted, since fake reality TV is already a tiresome trope, it might have been a bit more entertaining if they used real people instead of extras posing as members of the public. It would have been better to really see him messed up on cocaine, or release a sex tape, the show is so weak its the only thing that can save it. Megan Stevenson is an annoying generic bubble-head, who essentially has no role on the show, other than to state the obvious to Daly, while auditioning for her next piece of sheet on the Fox News and Friends leg flesh stool.
