A late-night comedy show featuring several short skits, parodies of television commercials, a live guest band, and a pop-cultural guest host each week.

Hasn't been funny since the mid 90s
8 November 2018 | by cynjoschSee all my reviews

I don't understand how this show is still on the air. The skits aren't funny anymore at all, haven been funny in over 20 years as a matter of fact.
