This Comedy Starts Weak, Continues Weak, Ends Weak, Josh Gad Stinks
1 January 2017 | by jennaspivacSee all my reviews

When this show first came on the air I remember looking forward to seeing it. There was a great late night show interview with Billy Crystal and I saw clips of the show that actually made it look pretty good.

Boy was I wrong!

When I tuned in to actually watch it, the show was really just terrible. And then the next episode was worse, and the one after that, and so on.

Billy Crystal and the guest stars (and they had some pretty impressive star names and funny comedians as guest stars including Mel Brooks, Steven Weber, etc) were just wasted and coasting. Judging by this show and the last several Oscars etc I've seen him host I think maybe it is time for Billy Crystal to hang them up and get out of comedy, because if he thinks this is actually a funny comedy series to sign on to he obviously has lost his funny bone.

And Josh Gad is just plain awful. Not remotely funny or talented in every way. Everything I've seen him in I found him awful and unfunny and this is about the worst.
