THANK GOD YOU'RE HERE

Recommended Posts

thank god you're here is a new show starting tomorrow night on nbc

 

the series, which was originally produced in Australia, is being described as Whose Line is it Anyway? meets Let's Make a Deal. Celebrity guests will choose one of several doors to open. Behind each door, a comedy sketch they know nothing about is being performed. Whether they stumble into an operating room, a motorcycle race or an undersea adventure, they'll be greeted by the line, "Thank God you're here!" From that point, the celeb is on his or her own. Their performances will be judged by Kids in the Hall alum Dave Foley and host David Alan Grier.

If nothing else, the show will reveal who - without the help of teleprompters, cue cards and heavy scripting - couldn't act their way out of a paper bag. It was all too obvious from Thursday night's Colbert-O'Reilly switch-a-roo who spent his formative years at Second City absorbing the "yes, and..." rule and who equates "thinking on his feet" with a set of fresh talking points. The Thank God You're Here pilot, which was filmed back in November, featured American Pie's Jennifer Coolidge, Malcolm in the Middle's Bryan Cranston, The Soup's Joel McHale and Seinfeld's Wayne Knight (aka Newman). Production on the remaining episodes will begin in February.

Newman!

 

It would be worth watching just to see where old Newman ends up, and whether he can randomly pull off the scenario prescribed. As he hasn't been in CYE I figure he may not be randomly funny and might have to rely on a script.

the routine of the extras asking consecutive obscure questions gets tired real quick
