Remember when he was one of the only two things that didn't suck about Hype? (Wait, do Jennifer Elise Cox's abs count as one thing, or six?)

I loved Frank Caliendo when he was on MADtv. Sorry to hear his series isn't so good.

Speaking of MADtv: Alan, do you know if the new shows being aired were all in the can prior to the strike? It seems weird that SNL is dark and MADtv isn't. And what happened to Ike Barinholz, one of their funniest members, if you know?

I shudder to think of how bad it would have gotten if four out of TBS's five playoff series hadn't been sweeps...

hey alan,

all props to you. you are my favorite tv blogger...

but if you've ever watched an ep of snl in the last 20 years, or watched madtv since the get-go, then frank's show is the same un-funny shit we have seen forever.

the only difference here is that frank can do the impersonations. dude is great at that.

i love impersonators. i'll watch for nothing else. funny? original? not so much. but better than the competition.

wouldn't you agree?
