Bone The Fish - Most Recent Comments!

Who said you can't coin your own term? What is "Boning the Fish"? It's a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite TV Show, Celebrity, Movie Series or Music Group has reached its peak. That instant you know from now on...it's all downhill. Some call it a climax of sorts. We call it "Boning the fish". From that moment on things will simply never be the same.

Brandy's real life brother Ray J could not find a job on his own so they throw him into the show as on illegitimate brother. How sad and degrading. Quit hawking on your older sister's career and get a job at McDonald's. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:50 pm

Janice was the only one who was saying things that the modeling agency people might actually say. And she was funny too. I remember she really liked Brittany from season 4 (who Tyra seemed to think was too "Playboy") and I agreed with Janice, Brittany had the best pictures of anyone that season. But of course, Janice's picks ALWAYS got eliminated. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:42 pm

The challenges, although very entertaining (at the expense of the girls, of course) got more and more ridiculous over time. Posing naked on ice in roller skates? Posing with real live tarantulas and then berating the girls who were rightfully terrified? Not everyone wants to hold a giant hairy arachnid in their hand or near their cheek. Getting mad at the girls who don't know how to dance to hip hop? LOL. Entertaining, yet in a twisted way. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:39 pm

Why did Tyra have "one-on-one counseling" sessions with the girls who have "issues" in their lives? I thought the show was called "America's Next Top Model", not "America's Next Top Guidance Counselor". Every cycle they put Tyra in a room with one of these girls and she gives them her "Giiiiirrrrl, I've been where you at, and you've gotta get your life together. I went from Inglewood to Hollywood, and you can't do that if you keep beating bitches up and stealing!" pep talk, and somehow after one counseling session with Tyra, the girl cries, tells her whole life story, and then has a complete change of heart and life? And why dud Tyra talk with a whispery, breathy voice during these "counseling session sequences" as well as in the final sequence where she tells them if they made it through or not? Does whispery, breathy voice= "I really care about you"?? -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:32 pm

Tyra and Miss Jay were always telling somebody that they walk like they're on crack. I mean, even if it may be true, that isn't really helping. LOL. How about telling them how they can ya know, actually IMPROVE their walk? Granted, some of the girls DID walk like they were still evolving, but what do you expect when you stick somebody in 7 inch heels (for your entertainment) on a 2 inch runway on national television? Ppl end up going to the hospital and get threatened that if they aren't checked out by the time of the next elimination tomorrow night it will affect the judges' decisions on who goes home.

Not a shark jump moment, but I always laughed at the blatant product placements for Pantene, Banana Boat, etc. Mr. Jay would always endorse them under the guise of giving the girls direction for their photo shoot. "OK girls, today we're going to be using Pantene, because Pantene gives you great hair!" "You're all going to be wearing Banana Boat products, don't go out into the sun without your Banana Boat!" Gee, that's VERY subtle. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:20 pm

Nicole should NOT have won Cycle 5. She was bitchy and looked very "teen-magaziney". Tyra kept claiming that cycle that the so-called goal was to find the next high fashion top model but the most I could see Nicole doing is a Sears catalog. Janice could be mean a lot of the time but at least she was entertaining and sometimes she actually was truthful. But Twiggy was the ANTM version of Paul Abdul. She was always trying to be all PC and nice and not hurt anyone's feelings and let's face it, this is ANTM not Lambchop or Sesame Street. Nik was ROBBED. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:17 pm

America's Next Top Model - TV Shows
ANTM became too campy. It has always had it's campiness but somewhere along the line, the steam (which used to be amusing, no matter how harsh it could be) began to run out. When the show was at it's peak though, it was hilarious. Because let's face it, although thoroughly entertaining, a lot of the humor stemmed from the pettiness of the judges' critiques. "Oh, your left eyebrow is a yoctometer off center. That just isn't gonna fly, and nobody will take you seriously in this industry because of it!" "You're too damn short for Top Model! What the hell were you thinking. You look like a Smurf for God's sake!" Or, "You're breathing wrong. Good luck with winning this competition." As if it's somehow ALL the girl's fault. Constructive criticism is ONE thing but berating somebody for their looks/height after YOU picked them for the show, is completely retarded. Like when they kept telling Mercedes she was too "commercial" looking and that she looked cute but like a mall girl. Ummm why did you pick her in the first place then? Which BTW, I always thought she was gorgeous. But I digress. ANTM was good for comic relief but was annoying when they hardly ever picked the girls who deserved to win. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 8:13 pm

Have a nice trip, see ya next fall!" it's supposed to suddenly be funny. At least that's the premise on this show. (And by the way, WHY was Grandma on the roof in the first place?

In my opinion, Golden Palace doesn't count as Jumping the Shark since it was a spinoff and GG was over by then. I did find the flashbacks to be a bit much eventually though. Like dude, how many flashback episodes can you possibly have in 7 years. It seems like every time I turn to Hallmark they are gathered at the table, opening up a pink box and the screen starts to get wavy and everyone's flashing back to episodes from last season. A flashback episode is OK every now and then but NOBODY has flashbacks about stuff THAT often, idc how old you are. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 7:22 pm

I've always found Bea Arthur magnificently funny, but the one thing I disliked is how she still put up with Stan so much. I kept thinking, doesn't she have some Sicilian relatives who could, you know, make him "go away"? I'm pretty sure Sophia could've hooked her up. Then, after the murder, they could all sit around the kitchen table in their silky pajama sets and robes and eat cheesecake and reminisce about their earlier adventures ad nauseum.

Like many others, I love the show dearly but I admit that these things made me go "wtf"...the fact they get along like peas in a pod from the onset and Blanche doesn't seem to mind these strangers moving into her home; and why was Rose even holding Mr. Peepers in a grocery store in the first show? Kind of unlikely, unless she's a seeing-eye cat. Sophia just shows up from Shady Pines unannounced (good thing they had that fourth bedroom!) LOL! But the most boring episode goes to: Empty Nest, that episode at the next-door neighbors' house.

Big Daddy was played by two different guys (one of whom which my mother said strongly resembled Colonel Sanders) but all that aside, Miles originally played a guy named Arnie, then not long after he returned as a guy named "Miles". And later in the series, we find out he was in the Witness Protection Program and lied about his overall identity (but still never was Arnie).

he first 2-3 seasons of the show rank with the best comedies ever made. The acting and writing is so clever and funny. The best way to identify the funniest episodes is by Bea's hairstyle: the episodes with the shorter haircut are the earliest. The show began its jump when Sophia began getting too smart. Her character should have remained more stoic with the hint of senility. Think of how much funnier she was when, in the first episode, she declares, "The man is a scuzball!" She remains fairly expressionless while Dorothy throws up her arms in disgust. This was high comedy. The show definitely made the jump when the characters became extreme, due mostly to lazy writing: Rose becomes ridiculously dumb, Dorothy painfully desperate and mean, Blanche an all out slut: remember the first season when Blanche and Dorothy are fighting over Dorothy's boyfriend having made a pass at Blanche? Dorothy calls Blanche a slut and she is terribly offended. After the show jumps, Blanche looks prouder after she is referred to as a slut every half hour. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 6:54 pm

The last episode should have been when Jackie and Fred got married in 1994. After that, the show declined into too many fantasy episodes and watered down plots. In the last episode, Roseanne seemed to be trying to get even with her critics in Hollywood, but ended up only slapping her fans in the face. What had once been a very funny story about the most realistic TV family to date turned out to be only a novel of the Roseanne Connor character.

Roseanne - TV Shows
Roseanne was a brilliant show - as good as sitcoms can get. There are dozens of episodes which are written and acted flawlessly. Just amazing craft. But around not long after Jackie married Fred the show hit the wall. A sudden shift of producers and writers -- not to mention Roseanne's break-up with Tom Arnold -- ended the magic. The seventh season was not as funny or polished as the previous ones. Then, the eighth season was astonishingly unfunny. And the ninth season was such a shift in tone and a betrayal of direction that it was like watching a train wreck. When I watch the reruns these days on TV Land or WE I stop after Jackie gets married. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 4:23 pm

OK, not to be homophobic, BUT......First Leon is gay, ok, his character was pretty funny.

And don't get me started on the episode where Bev and her lover invite Leon and Scott over to dinner and they all start dancing like Rockettes. The ultimate jump. That whole last season was a waste, what a shame from a once brilliant show. Oh yeah, turns out in the end, Bev is straight and Jackie the guy-chaser was really gay.

The Cosby Show jumped when the Cosby Show turned into the Cousin Pam Show. The last 2 seasons are practically devoted exclusively to Cousin Pam. And why should we care about Cousin Pam? She just shows up out of nowhere with some unbelievable story about how her mother had to leave to care for a relative. Why wouldn't Cousin Pam go with her? Then after just showing up, we're all supposed to be so fascinated with her ghetto-like lifestyle and friends. If Cosby wanted to do a show like this, he should have just produced one on its own (a la Different World). The Cousin Pam story as an extension of the Cosby Show just didn't mesh well. We all tuned into the Cosby Show to see the Huxtables, and the last two seasons, it's almost as if the entire Huxtable family becomes an afterthought! Cousin Pam and Olivia aren't true Huxtables. -- Submitted By: (Icemouth) on August 15, 2014, 4:04 pm

The Cosby Show jumped when I could no longer figure out who was living in the Huxtable house anymore. There were only 3 people that lived there consistently throughout the series: Cliff, Claire and Rudy. The last 3 seasons portrayed the Huxtable house as a literal revolving door with Martin, Denise, Olivia, Theo, Vanessa, Cousin Pam, Sondra, Elvin, Winnie and Nelson (am I forgetting anybody?) all coming and going incessantly. How many bedrooms was this house supposed to have anyway??? No wonder Rudy seemed so pissed all the time!!

Although the show hung on for at least a half season after Steve Carell left, with the two very funny "search Committee" episodes, it soon began to go down hill fast. With the emphasis more and more on Jim, Dwight and the insufferable Pam, as well as idiotic new characters (the fat guy with glasses and the supposed "stud" that Erin eventually falls for) led to a vapid and witless finale that endeared no one (Kelly abandoning a baby, Jim not taking a great job to be Dwight's flunky, Michael coming back with KIDS, Toby being humiliated - again) to the audience.

Initially, this show was in line with most late 80s sitcoms. Instead of Roseanne, you had Harriet Winslow, a hard working elevator operator living in the mean streets of Chi Town. They, like the Bundys, were far from having the status the Huxtables had. Then, out of nowhere, a young man by the name of Steven Q. Urkel claimed he wanted to take Laura Winslow to the School dance and history was made. At first, Laura and Eddie were like most sitcom daughters and sons, but Laura went from being the smarter younger sister to being a tigeress. Without Urkel, though, she would have been invisible for the rest of the first season. People only tuned in from '90-'91 to see if Urkel would finally get his Laura.

Three's Company never was, isn't, and never should be considered a source of highbrow humor. The show was obviously far more inclined toward slapstick humor and double-entendre, and for the most part, it worked quite well. However, the episodes with Jenilee Harrison pushed the slapstick angle so hard it just became ludicrous. Cindy's klutziness got real old REAL fast. For that reason, to cite "Chrissy leaves" as the BTF point is a fair statement as far as it goes. To really be fair, though, you'd have to say that while the show boned when Chrissy left, it de-boned when Terri arrived and Cindy started being phased out. Once Terri's character was established and Cindy was gone, it seemed like the show had found its way again. Also, as ParkerTillman alluded, it certainly didn't hurt that Priscilla Barnes was far hotter than Somers or Harrison! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 5, 2014, 12:20 am

Typical plot: one of the boys would do something incredibly stupid and get trapped underwater, the other boy and the dad would immediately go off in the wrong direction looking for him, and Flipper would save the day!

I don't know what was weirder, the show or the backstage shenanigans. Jake Burbage, who played the youngest boy, Henry, had a stage mother from hell. She constantly attacked the producers and writers for not making her son the breakout star which she was convinced was his destiny. The more she complained, the more they cut Henry's parts until they totally wrote him out of the entire final season! No explanation, just no Henry. It was like he never existed. Weird way to go with that instead of killing him off (sorta heavy to kill a child in a sit-com) or replacing him with another actor. Aside form that the show was actually pretty good, the clueless boy next door Brad (Bret Harrison) and Lily, the flaming red-hot sex kitten daughter were hysterical together. Donal Logue and Megan Pryce were good, too. Very believable modern day Irish Catholic couple in over their heads. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 4:23 pm

It was a treat to see what a town like Deadwood actually looked and sounded like back in the 1800s. It wasn't squeaky clean, people, it was dirty and nasty. I get a kick out if seeing an old western TV show and the bad guys say things like lily-livered varmint, and gosh danggit!

Seriously, this show was funny a long, long, long time ago but it has jumped the bone so many times I don't know where to start. How about with Stewie? Is he gay or straight? Please figure it out and get back to us. One episode he's hittin' on all the boys, the next he's hittin' on all the girls. And why the hell does a baby have a sexual identity crisis anyway? I really love my big flat screen but I came close to putting an axe through it when you introduced Vinny. My god man, have you no shame? And please, no more musical production numbers, ever! I saw an interview and you said you were proud that you had every 15-year old boy in the country dancing and singing Shipoopi. You really are deluded. Or evil. I haven't decided which. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 3:29 pm

Leave It To Beaver - TV Shows
This actually passed for good TV back in the day? Wow. Unrealistic, sappy, dopey, very white and this town they lived in, Mayfield, was it in the Twilight Zone? Where are all the ethnic people? Where are the poor people? The old man was always reading the paper and watching the news but everything was all Skittles and Care Bears! Where was the Cold War? The McCarthy Hearings? Race riots? It's not natural for brothers to get along like Wally and the Beav. I grew up in the same room as my older brother and not a week went by that we weren't trying to kill each other! We would occasionally have fun but our main pastime was plotting each other's murder. Now that's a realistic pair of brothers! Aside from the unreality of the show, the writing was awful. Who cares if a 6-year old makes friends with a fireman? I really don't understand those people who claim this is the best TV had to offer back in the Not So Golden Age of TV! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 3:06 pm

Star Trek: The Animated Series - TV Shows
Insanely good show! I never knew it existed until one of the cable channels started showing the episodes. I thought, "Star Trek cartoons? Seriously?" I watched an episode and was blown away because they introduced the K'Zin, a race of intelligent cats created by the most awesomest sci-fi writer ever, Larry Niven! I thought maybe they were just ripping him off but sure enough there he was in the credits, written by Larry Niven! Turns out he was a regular writer for the show, amazing! They did several of his most famous stories, like The Slaver Weapon. After that I was hooked and almost cried when I had seen all of the episodes. I feel sorry for kids today not having a truly intelligent animated show to call their own! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 2:37 pm

Star Trek TNG - TV Shows
The first season was a lot more gritty and I LOVED it when Riker called out Picard for doing something stupid. "Number One, take the com, I'm going to the surface." "No, Captain. I can't allow that, it is my job to protect you, this mission is far to dangerous." Then Picard would pout and go drink Earl Grey, hot while Riker got all the glory! Wesley was OK as a kid but when they started giving him real jobs and listening to his advice, TNG totally boned! Best line ever was from Guinan to Wesley when he spouted off about her personal business. "You're just a kid!" Nice way to tell him to STFU and go play with his dolls. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on August 4, 2014, 2:28 pm

Absolutely one of the best television shows of all time. It is criminal that the show is largely unknown today, and it deserves a complete, remastered DVD release.

Air America failed for the reason liberal talk media will always fail.

@martymarty: Boner's real name was Vincent Stabone. I don't think they ever said when or how he got the nickname, but I had the impression it was well-established by the time he was in high school. We could therefore conjecture that he got the nickname in junior high. Considering the typical mentality of junior-high kids in the 1980s -- and I oughtta know, I was one of 'em -- "Stabone" to "Boner" wasn't just possible, it was INEVITABLE! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 1, 2014, 10:43 pm

Pawn Stars - TV Shows
It seems Big Hoss is taking over the show. This season he is doing most of the negotiating and Rick only shows up to do a quick deal every now and then. Too bad, because "Big Hoss" Cory Harrison is the most unlikable, disagreeable, and obnoxious person on TV. Don't the producers notice people generally hate him? They have also made Chum into a cartoon character buffoon and the Old Man into a ghost with a token 10 seconds of air time per episode. Please!

Munsters Today, The - TV Shows
OMG! I did not that this show even existed. I eagerly watched an episode on HULU because of the cast, Lee Meriwether as Lily and Jason Marsden who played Eddie. I turned off the first episode after a few minutes, it was THAT bad, and skipped ahead several episodes. It was even worse. How this thing stayed on the air for 72 episodes is a real mystery. The guy who played Herman was so miscast it was pathetic and although Lee Meriwether has done some pretty good work, her Lily was horrible. The only decent acting came from Jason Marsden. His Eddie was funny and clever but they never gave him enough to do. Whenever he did something interesting, it was "go outside and play, Eddie!" And that would be the last you saw him in that episode. I think his average screen time was under two minutes per episode, sometimes he only got 30 seconds. As soon as The Munsters Today was cancelled, Jason went on to play the mystery teen, Dash X in Eerie, Indiana. A phenomenal role that really let him stretch out as an actor. Sadly, that show only had 19 episodes while The Munsters Today today went on for 72! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 28, 2014, 9:16 am

Boy Meets World - TV Shows
This show was clever and funny for about 2 seasons, after that it was awful and should have been taken off the air. The relationship between Cory and Shawn was the heart and soul of the show. Shawn had a very rough impoverished family life but remained a sweet kid. Cory didn't treat him differently because of it but ached inside for all of Shawn's pain. Then came Topanga, perhaps the most annoying girl on the planet. She was completely jealous of Shawn and was always trying to get Cory to stay away from him. It was at this point the show totally boned. It was no longer sweet, or funny for that matter, just a mindless sit-com with "girls are smarter than boys" plot devices. Mr. Feeny was a stalker and would have been arrested in real life. I mean even during the first season when Cory was 12, Feeny would show up at his house to bring him his homework and "check up on him." Creepy. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 28, 2014, 8:43 am

Ok, this was one weird show! One of the main characters was a boy named Boner! Hmmm. Can't imagine why a teenage boy would get a nickname of Boner! If that wasn't weird enuff, I saw an episode where Kirk Cameron puts his 11 year old brother over his knee wearing just a pair of tightey whiteys and spanks him. The brother thinks it's funny as hell and laughs hysterically, obviously enjoying it and the parents walk in and say "We don't even want to know what is going on." Weird. I have a hard time deciding who the biggest douchebag was, Alan Thicke or Kirk Cameron.

Rifleman, The - TV Shows
I know I'll catch hell for this but here goes. This is a terrible, awful, sick show! I watched several episodes on MeTV just to be sure, and yep, it is very bad. Here's a typical episode: Pa McCain (Chuck Connors)has a bonding moment with his cute little boy (Johnny Crawford). A bad guy shows up and Pa shoots him 632 times at point blank range in front of his son with that Winchester repeating rifle of his and everyone smiles and says what a great man Pa is and he and the kid hug and ride off into the sunset. So, he is teaching his son to murder his way out of a hard situation. Some of the "bad guys" Pa blew away were NOT all that bad, some of them just pissed him off. The acting is terrible, especially Chuck Connors, my god he is wooden as hell. I know this was made about a hundred years ago but really, it sucks. -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 25, 2014, 10:12 am

Wow, just wow! I heard some talk that F&G was a pretty good show but wow, it is awesome! A friend and me watched the entire series (sadly not that many episodes)and we were both blown away! The main girl character was incredible, I wonder whatever happened to her? And the two sets of boys, the older freaks played by James Franco and Seth Rogan and the younger geeks, played by John Francis Dailey (Sweets on Bones) and his buddies, they were just amazing! I actually cried a couple of times, once when the geekiest geek boy, Haverchuk, almost died because of a stupid prank, and once when Lindsay runs over a kid's dog when she was high, I felt so awful for her. Incredible show, a must, must, must watch! -- Submitted By: (martymarty) on July 25, 2014, 10:03 am

The signature episode of this entire bland series was when 50-year old Maude decides to get an abortion.

Three's Company - TV Shows
Having saw the original pilot episode when it aired back in 1977, I voted "Day 1" and am proud of it. Never got into this show (despite the fact that my wife loves it; she also likes "Full House," too, so go figure). No one could act their way out of a wet paper bag, the jokes (or mostly double entendres) weren't even funny in the '70s and the supporting cast (Larry, the Ropers, Furley) were miserable. "Come and knock on my door"? I don't think so. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 23, 2014, 11:54 am

Three Stooges, The - TV Shows
When Curly had his first stroke in 1946 (brought on no doubt by a terrible lifestyle and alcohol), you could notice the diminished quality of not only his performance, but of the shorts as well. Shemp took over shortly thereafter and the films were just not as funny (with a few notable exceptions). There were also a lot of remakes with Shemp just filling in the Curly roles. And although I voted "Never Boned," in reality, Shemp's death was the end of the shorts franchise. Joe Besser (who had appeared in other programs, including the "Abbott and Costello Show") evidently had a contract that stated he could not be abused like the others before him. That's why he would lisp, "Not so hard!" and hit back whenever Moe was ready to crack him (in the "Three Stooges Encyclopedia," Moe Howard bemoans this fact). The movies then brought in Curly Joe DeRita and toned down the (hilarious) violence. The new film obviously loved the characters and the Farrelly brothers knew what they were doing. The three leads were also pretty good (Sean Hayes in almost unrecognizable). As dumb and lowbrow as their humor was, it's still funnier than 99 percent of the crap we get today, so I say just enjoy the hold shorts. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 23, 2014, 11:46 am

Actually, as good as it became, it was close to jumping (or boning, whichever one prefers) in the first season with the annoying and unfunny Kirk (Steven Kampmann), whose lying schtick got old very fast.

I was older than its normal demographics, but would watch it in the mornings sometime when I was home sick.

I certainly wouldn't call this show "great," but it did have its interesting moments.

CNN - Random Topics
For anyone who thinks CNN is unbiased, may I point you to Piers Morgan's deplorable actions after Sandy Hook? He took to the airwaves for weeks screaming that gun owners are all nuts. His town hall debate, which he monopolized and used to berate those attending with opposing viewpoints, was a shining example of his bias. Even my stepdad, who is a STAUNCH liberal, thought he had gone too far and was discrediting his position by being an asshole. If that's not enough for you, perhaps we can include Susan Roesgen's positive meltdown at a Chicago Tea Party protest, during which she sputtered accusations of fascism and Fox News hate. Or how about Rick Sanchez's attempts to equate pro-lifers to Westboro Baptists? How about the fact that Michael Moore still has a recurring spot on CNN? How about their plethora of left-leaning "original specials?" Yeah, real down-the-middle there. /sarcasm -- Submitted By: () on July 22, 2014, 10:33 am

Late Night with Conan O'Brien - TV Shows
Andy leaving Late Night killed the show for me. I think the show just gradually went downhill and it stopped having the kind of awesome weird humor it had in the 90s, the show sorely missed his weird demented sensibility. Also original writers Robert Smigel and Louis CK leaving likely took a lot out of the show. Conan on his own is a funny guy but they don't have those bizarre inappropriate sketches anymore like the NBC Satellite Channels, interviews via satellite with "celebrities" whose mouths only move, staring contests, Actual News Items and slideshows from Conan's "vacations". His show now is as bland and safe as any other talk show unfortunately. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 22, 2014, 3:47 am

One of the funniest shows ever made, never should've been cancelled. I have no idea why it didn't catch on.

Howard Stern - Celebrities
The show died when Artie got really into addiction and Beth turned Howard into a eunuch. It's weird how quickly the show went downhill, the first few years on Sirius were amazing but Artie being basically asleep when he was drugged out kept anyone from reigning in Howard and his babbling about reality shows and his life in the Hamptons. It's basically a shell of what it was with only occasional funny moments from Richard, Sal and goofing on JD and Eric the Midget. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 22, 2014, 3:23 am

Night Stand with Dick Dietrick - TV Shows
Here was the thing about this show. Everyone I ever met who watched it loved it. But the main issue with the show is that in many stations it aired in the dead of night. In my market the show aired at 2:00AM on Sunday Morning. So the only people who could watch it were nighthawks that just stayed late on the weekends or people coming home from the bars. I personally think if the show came on during the day in a lot of stations it would of had a longer run. -- Submitted By: (bjohn345) on July 20, 2014, 2:52 pm
