I thought he was dead. So I guess he's ahead of the game.

Mugato: I thought he was dead.


I thought the show was cancelled years ago.

I knew he was alive. He also did that failed game show about guessing how much rich people's stuff is.

How entertaining can you be when you have to remind people every time you say your name that you're an entertainer?

So Ocean's 14 is on then.

They saved Freddie Mac but they let Bernie Mac die.

I think the show will be following suit.

/Local station gave it up when Meredith left...for an hour noon newscast.
//Another station picked it up, then decided to run it when station 1 airs Ellen.
///Suffice it to say, everyone in our market thinks it's already gone.

It's been knocked down to dinnertime on the CW for a while where I am.

Benevolent Misanthrope How entertaining can you be when you have to remind people every time you say your name that you're an entertainer? 

Heh, made me laff.

Reminds me of seeing James Brown in concert when he had some dude keep coming out every ten minutes to announce that James Brown is the greatest.  Talk about needy.

It's no big loss. Although he can be a funny guy, the show is a poor fit for Cedric's skills.

/ Craig Ferguson, on the other hand...
// I know, Craig's going to be hosting his own game show.

Cedric is not that funny and Steve Harvey is still alive unfortunately.

The most important news in that article is this guy likely being the next host of WWTBAM:

Huh, i assumed this was a racist headline about Steve Harvey leaving Family Feud... I didnt even know WWTBAM was still on.

The glacial pace of the show just doesn't work.

 Another 80's hack footnote.

It comes on at 1 AM on my local station in Orlando.

You got that right and the random nature is dumb. I have seen a really hard question right out of the gate, which used to be softballs. The random money amount is dumb too.

I tried watching that recently.. They seemed to have taken the basic premise of what the original show was about and herpa derped it up with shiat I don't care to understand.

Yeah... they upended the first part of the game with some weird "shuffling" of the money amounts and what not.... it certainly is not the "Regis" millionaire anymore.   I mean, you certainly have to make a few adjustments for a 1/2 hr format vs. an hour, but, they just tore it apart.

The Entertainer? So he's a song and dance man? Maybe magic? Every time I see this guy I wonder just what that is supposed to mean.

PreMortem: The Entertainer? So he's a song and dance man? Maybe magic? Every time I see this guy I wonder just what that is supposed to mean.


He actually does all that.  He had a comedy variety show on prime time a while back (think "In Living Color").  It wasn't successful, but it showcased his skills well enough.

Guy is actually really funny (see him on "Haunted House"), but I agree, this doesn't seem like a good fit.

I stopped watching "Millionaire" after Meredith Vieira quit; I thought she came off as someone
who wanted to be your friend (as opposed to Alex Trebek, your stuffy teacher; what the heck
was Cedric supposed to be?)
