They’re reviving… they’re reviving the Gong Show, people.

With Mike Myers as the host.  He’s pretending to be British.  No, really.

…Fly, you fools!

    Hmm…no comments. I guess I’ll throw out the idea of a near-future time-travel story where the only way to save the world is travel back in time and kill Winston Churchill.

    To be fair, he did British accents all the time on SNL. And in Austin Powers. Still a stupid gimmick though.

    It could be worse…

    It could involve Billy Crystal.

    The original Gong Show was fingernails-on-chalkboard bad anyway, so … hard to imagine they could do worse?

    On a related note, Mike Meyers’ career has really cratered since Paramount stopped paying for more Shrek sequels…

      Meyers lucked into Shrek .. his career had cratered well before that.

      Meyers ought to kneel at Steve Martin’s feet and ask to learn how to do grown-up comedy .. Martin had the same problem transitioning from juvenile scatology at one point, IIRC.
      .
      As for The Gong Show .. the humor isn’t in laughing *with*, it’s in laughing *at* .. both at the contestants and at what can be gotten past the FCC.
