Watching this crappy show die a slow death is sure going to be fun. The only thing worse than the format is the content; it's like conservative stand-up minus the laughs (pardon the redundancy). Until the producers realize that it's not funny to consistently rip on the ACLU and other liberal caricatures, the show will flop.
The genius of "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" -- ya know, funny political satire -- is that they actually "report" what's going on in the world with a satirical spin and without a partisan agenda...and they do it four days a week, every week. It took "The Half Hour News Hour" team over a month to churn out this garbage. I would have posted the dreadful Dennis Miller skit at the end but I couldn't do that to you guys.
The only thing funny about "The Half Hour News Hour" is how unfunny it is and how badly it's bound to flop.
