Eric Bana is very talented but this show didn't quite work
26 May 2013 | by davcar-1See all my reviews

I remember this show. This show was produced after Bana's successful run as a comic actor with the sketch show Full Frontal. And a couple years before Bana reached stardom, with his big break in the movie Choppa. The show would consist of Bana interviewing a guest, then changing outfits and doing a sketch comedy routine. I remember at the time Bana said in a TV guide that he wanted to do something different, then the normal late night TV host comedy show format. Frankly the format didn't work - Bana kind of looked too rushed interviewing a guest, then changing outfits and doing a sketch. While Bana is a good sketch comedian, the skits on this show were not particularly funny. And while Bana is a great comic actor, he didn't seem to have the quick wit that is needed to be a successful TV comedian host.

After the show aired for a couple of weeks, they moved it to a later time-slot. That tends to mean generally that TV executives are ready to Axe it. And hence it was canceled...........
