Re: The Gong Show is coming back on ABC

I'm still enjoying it as a pass the time summer show. It still gives me a few good laughs each week. Definitely didn't care for Chelsea last week.

Mike Myers is having a lot of fun. Between Spinderella and balancing family I would have voted for the latter but some great, fun acts last night. Like Asian Elvis this show has exceeded expectations.

That Rubik's cube guy was pretty good as well!

I loved when Maya Rudolph started speaking to the Asian Elvis in Japanese and the Asian Elvis guy goes "What the hell did she say?"

The Asian Elvis act really annoyed me as it was a straight up rip off of an old Andy Kaufman routine.

Didn't know that, but I hear you. Previous episode had an act that was a blatant rip off of Blue Man Group.

Re: The Gong Show is coming back on ABC

I have the sense that a lot of the "acts" are just local talent looking for exposure.

That said, when it's really good, it's really good. The Rubik's Cube guy was amazing. He said he invested 29yrs learning that trick. Apparently he doesn't have a job.

Re: The Gong Show is coming back on ABC

According to my DVR, the Monday episode is "101", which is essentially the Pilot (or at least the first episode filmed) and, thus, the bigger "names" as the judges.

Was there a new episode last night? There was a football game on in Chicago.

No, ABC ran the second part of their Princess Diana special.

Yeah, she looked so damn uninterested in what was going on, it was ridiculous. I remember when she was actually funny.

Maya was a hoot, she actually had more of a short leash (which is what I've been looking for in these stars) when it came to gonging others. Too many of these stars are trying to be nice, gong the ever loving crap out of them!

Jennifer Aniston/Will Arnett/Jack Black
Is Will a producer in this show or something? Or was he just really available when they were doing tapings? Aniston and Black should be good though. *hopes Black is on so to speak*

And I'm probably the only one but can we get rid of the Shaving Cream guy? I'm so annoyed by him by now. I'd rather have a minute and a half of Tommy Maitland scratching his nose than this drek.
