Last night he and I steered an exchange of comedic tweets into a brief discussion of late night TV–and more specifically The Chevy Chase Show, which aired for five weeks in 1993 (in a bid to compete with Jay Leno’s Tonight Show [after Johnny Carson's retirement]).
I had forgotten the short stay of the show, or the critical reaction to it. Chase was panned for his lousy monologue and interview skills.
I must say, I never have watched another show’s audience shot where there were empty seats (as briefly seen in this video).
He really asks Robert De Niro about driving a bus. Yep, as great as drying paint.
