Storyline

1992 and 1993 saw great changes in late-night talk shows: Jay Leno took the place of Johnny Carson, David Letterman switched networks and time slots, and Chevy Chase and newcomer Conan O'Brien started their own shows. After the dust cleared from the greatly-hyped "talk-show wars", Chase emerged as the undisputed loser. While the show's format differed little from that of its competition, and a star of Chase's caliber had no trouble finding well-known guests, the show simply failed to resonate with viewers, and ground to a humiliating halt as it was finally pulled off the air in mid-show.

A talented, hilarious and original work of art.
24 August 2000 | by sww7044See all my reviews

This was an under rated show. It was easily one of the best shows ever. The comedy was rich and drop dead funny. Chevy Chase, with the power of "funny" delivers a hour of on the floor laughing. The skits often made me have random outbursts of chuckles for the next month. And the monologue, well I wish I knew the secret because it was too funny to even repeat. Chevy Chase is a comic genius that needs to be stopped or I will die of laughter. And to all you people out there that criticize this work of art are just plain jealous. Chevy, if you are reading this, don't listen to them. They want your talent but won't get it. This show was brilliant. Chevy brought outstanding wit to the interviews and had perfect timing. This show will always hold a legacy of memories and an impact to the comic world and heart for internity.
