OK, but pales in comparison to Barry.
4 August 2001 | by TherodSee all my reviews

With some good guffaws tossed in here and there, "Dave's World" just doesn't hold a candle to real-life Barry's words of wisdom. Harry Anderson does the best with what he's got, but even that couldn't save this sinking ship.

Worth a view or two, but I'd rather read Dave Barry's real columns.

Grade: C
