BTW, Insanity (town) is actually a suburb of Christchurch, New Zealand. You can tell by the way they pronounce “skun hids”.

As another non-watcher of late night TV (so interested spectator rather than active protester), I think it is about more than time slots! The issue as I see it is one of the integrity of public personalities. You took a risk, signed a contract to launch your own show, then find out you don’t have enough funny to hold the public interest? Either come up with the goods or get out of the game! Don’t oust your successor to get your old job back.
Its not that I expect celebrities to have integrity, but I am still actively surprised when they demonstrate a complete lack of it.

It might be something of a relative question? I think this is about as touchy-feely as Nick Cave or Shane MacGowan get…
And while in 15 years time I may well cringe in horror while viewing this on a “worst charity tribute videos ever” list, I like the fact that right now it DIDN’T make me throw up in my mouth a little.

I stopped in last night (my time) while I’m guessing things were under construction – and it was like the internets had gone mad. I was so relieved to find an explanation this morning (my time)! It all looks very slick guys :)

Seconded! By 10min in, I was all startled “Oh, is this a comedy?” but then I realised that no – it was just non-ironic appalling acting.
Also add Zooey Not-so-secret Jerk.
