I always enjoy hearing your opinion, so I was wondering if you have had the chance to check out Thank God You're Here
on NBC. I find it entertaining, and I love that the celebrities are very into it and excited, considering how scary improv must be. Any thoughts on the show?Answer:
I did give it a short review in the magazine
, rating it a 6 out of 10, which seems pretty fair. This isn't the sort of show I tend to seek out, but I'm glad it's there as an entertaining alternative for those in search of a silly good time. It fills a void left when ABC dropped Whose Line Is It Anyway
. Your question came on the same day I got a welcome surprise on my voicemail: a greeting from Bryan Cranston (Malcolm in the Middle
) thanking me for my good words. I'd suggested he be a regular, since he pretty much stole the episode I'd screened with his comic verve. He described the experience as "fun and nerve-racking." And to think, he made it look so easy.
