Well, somebody liked it
Sure enough, there was plenty about the U.K. Millionaire reboot, which I expected. Alex Davis used to tell us over and over that the Brits do game shows better, and BuzzerBlog still believes.
I also noticed that the blog has gotten rid of the weird penile image of Steve Harvey. Instead they've got a screenshot from Taskmaster, of all things (see photo). Taskmaster already seems to have expired, as it drew an audience measured in dozens (slight exaggeration). But the show was based on a Brit original, so Cory Anotado - chairman of my fan club - gave the show a ridiculously favorable review.
Too bad almost nobody in America agreed with Cory. The latest Nielsen news on the show was that it attracted a whopping 105K viewers, which Comedy Central could probably get with a Cheech and Chong movie rerun. Who knows, that might be the show's replacement.
I checked. The replacement is actually a Jeff Dunham rerun. By the way, Comedy Central ordered ten eps of Taskmaster but only eight made it to air. The numbers were that bad. What a turkey.
