Painfully unfunny
29 May 2003 | by csi_yellowknifeSee all my reviews

The Fonz is Limbaugh. It was an entire show dedicated to ripping off and mocking Rush Limbuagh. The problem is, it looked like a show made by somebody who never listened to him, and assumed all of those stereotypes about conservatives (racist, sexist, homophobic, ignorant) were true. So, cue the black woman sidekick, because that must be funny. It was just another mismatch comedy with predictable result, except that the main character was a Limbaugh wanna be. That may be funny for a sketch or two on SNL or MadTV, but not an entire half-hour - let alone week after week. Within a few weeks it was the least watched TV show in America, and then thankfully yanked. Don't expect the show to be out on DVD anytime soon. Making fun of something you don't understand is going to fail everytime.
