Too bad. I hate that woman that they currently have. Jimmy Kimmel was funny. That woman is just irritating.
2001-10-13 07:57:05 PM  
Oh, and boobies!!
2001-10-13 07:59:19 PM  
Wil Wheaton doesn't have boobies. If he does he's weird.
2001-10-13 08:01:55 PM  
She's not as funny as Kimmel, but I would boink her. :) She's a cutie...
2001-10-13 08:02:11 PM  
Maybe Jenna Jamerson will get the job..
2001-10-13 08:03:17 PM  
Oh, if I had a choice of either putting Kimmel back on Ben Stein's show or leave him on the Man Show...I think he's much more effective on the Man Show. :)
2001-10-13 08:05:02 PM  
nah, I like her - it's hard to find a good looking, funny female host. the new chick on "Change of Heart" - she is farking annoying
2001-10-13 08:06:53 PM  
"C'mon Ben, all kids want to see your schlong!" -- Kimmel
2001-10-13 08:11:56 PM  
ANYONE would be better than the "hole" they have on now... she is so farking nasty and unfunny.....
2001-10-13 08:19:27 PM  
I agree.. the biz-natch must die! Did they get new writers ont hat show since Kimmel left, too? I was watching again after not seeing it for a while and it seemed really..... petty and mean-spirited. Left me feeling uncomfortable, like that "Weakest Link" show. It's just not fun, or funny, anymore.

Wil could have been really good for that show. From what I've seen of his personality here on Fark (which really isn't much, but still), I think he and Stein would have worked off of each other quite well. ::sigh:: oh well. One can only hope the guy the picked will bring that show out of the rut it's in.
2001-10-13 08:48:22 PM  
You guys must be high. Nancy Pimentel is funnier than Kimmel, Hot and smart enough for a degree in chemical engineering from Worster... Also a writer for South Park... WHAT ELSE IS THERE?!?!?!?!
2001-10-13 08:52:01 PM  
I'm sure Wheaton could Turn Ben Stein On. hahaha
2001-10-13 08:55:24 PM  
I dunno ... I get the impression that that woman on Win Ben Stein's Money was told by the producers to "Act slutty." She tries for the double entandre(sp?) but it doesn't come off very well. Jimmy Kimmel could do it, mostly because it always seemed to me that he loved to see what it would take to get a rise out of Ben.

Who's Wil Wheaton?
2001-10-13 09:13:13 PM  
drummer is a closet trekkie.
2001-10-13 09:25:13 PM  
dammit, drummer you stole my joke...

What do they call a person who hangs out with musicians?

A Drummer.

What do you call a Drummer with half a brain?


What does a Drummer use for contraception?

His personality!

What's the difference between a drum machine and a Drummer?

You only have to punch the information into the drum machine once!

What's the best way to confuse a Drummer?

Put a sheet of music in front of him.

I think that will be sufficient for revenge... Next time, you think twice about stealing my joke, Drummer!
2001-10-13 09:29:36 PM  
I do not care what kinda degrees this biatch has or has not.... SHE SUCKS as a co host and I don't give a fark about south park.... THAT SHOW USED TO BE FUNNY
2001-10-13 09:29:40 PM  
Ooops almost forgot my favorite...

How many drummers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

Dude! It's, like, dark??
2001-10-13 09:40:33 PM  
Wil Wheaton...

Oh no, Ben Stein's show isn't going to appeal to the trekkies. Not unless he starts putting the questions in klingon, anyways.

Good riddance.
2001-10-13 09:40:44 PM  
I think she's pretty good. Certainly better then Wil Wheaton would have been. He's a dork.
2001-10-13 09:46:40 PM  
Weaton is farking cool. FARK should have a Wheaton topic tag. It will never replace the Walken tag, but it shall be a worthy successor.

btw, whatya call a drummer without a girlfriend?
2001-10-13 10:01:28 PM  
Anyone who had problems playing on Star Trek NEEDS 2 rethink their career!!!

GO Scott Bakula!!!!!
2001-10-13 10:28:00 PM  
I demand a recount.... Wheaton deserves to be co-host and would fit perfectly on that show! I'm protesting!

Leave TEH WHEATON alone!
2001-10-13 10:57:16 PM  
Think in reverse... this show isn't good enough for Wil Wheaton. The guy's personality on his weblog exudes intelligence and wit. He's honest and often self-deprecating (sp?)... seems like the opposite of all the fake Hollywood crapola.

And I think the mood of the country is going to fit that perfectly. IMO, but WTC and following makes all that fakeness and triviality seem just stupid. Things like what gown someone's wearing to the Emmys aren't going to matter when the Emmys are cancelled for war. People will want their actors to be actors, not "celebrities on TV". The quality of the job that anyone does is suddenly going to be much more important.

*sigh* I have a lot more thoughts on this, but not on a Fark thread...
2001-10-13 11:16:36 PM  
anyone else pick up on the fact that the "Where is my mind" up at the top of the weblog is the name of the song that plays at the end of fight club when all the buildings fall?
2001-10-13 11:22:23 PM  
Count your blessings, Wil. I like Ben Stein and read his diary column every month in American Spectator, but the guy is one serious depressoid. If his diary reflects anything of his true personality, they'd be talking you off the ledge after an hour in his company.
2001-10-13 11:40:29 PM  
"Oh, one last thing: can we cool it with the "I'm first" thing? It's really lame."

i see the trend has spread elsewhere. :P
2001-10-14 01:42:59 AM  
What is the last thing a drummer says before he's kicked out of a band?

Hey guys! I wrote a song!

Hee hee!
2001-10-14 01:43:45 AM  
I stopped watching the show when kimmel left, I tried for a couple of weeks to see if that wench could get something going but she sucks.

Jesse Ventura would be funnier.
2001-10-14 10:06:08 AM  
The reason why Ben Stein was funnier with Kimmel was because Jimmy was the polar opposite personality to Ben, and they played off each other really well. This Nancy chick is not funny and has no idea how to play against Ben. First, she tried being just like a female version of Ben which didn't work. Then she tried to be low-brow like Kimmel, which definitely did not work. Now she tries to be this kinda aristocratic dominatrix chick. Sort of a bad Vulcan mind meld of the two (had to get an ST reference in), and it's even weaker.

I'm not sure that Wil would have been right for this part. Maybe. I'd really rather have Kimmel back, but anyone would be better than this current one. It reminds me of when John Henson left Talk Soup. He was un-farking-believable funny, and the show never was the same. I think they show it now at 1AM in the morning because it is so bad.

Hey neat, Wil Wheaton's only 11 days younger than me.
2001-10-14 03:37:50 PM  
Just for you, Wil. ;-)

wil rocks.

I liked the girl they had. Apart from being hot, she was deeply sarcastic. I love that in a woman. I wonder why she left.
