    I wish there was an option to give a score of 0 to a show. Felipe Esparza was nowhere near the funniest comic. I began to suspect that this show was rigged, several episodes back, when comics way better than him were eliminated. This show is a joke and I will never watch it again. Shame on you NBC! You need to change out your staff, including executives. Throughout the season, the judges gave Felipe a truly excessive and undeserved amount of praise. During the final episode, their comments were so obviously dictated by somebody else (like Kindler's use of the word "Amazing"), that I was disgusted with the three of them. Thanks, NBC, for nothing but betraying your viewers.

    I agree, Tommy Jonaghin, and even Troy Williamson were so much funnier than Felipe...I really wanted Tommy to win, his last set killed, while Felipe's wasn't even lukewarm for me. Tommy will have a bigger career in the end though, so it's ok.

    Did NBC add a laugh track to Kathy Griffin's set last night?

    i completely agree. Philipe should not have won, he wasnt funny at all. Tommy Johnagan was hilarious all the way through. I know that Tommy has had more TV time and Philipe is new but still.

    So you guys are are knowing and everybody has the same opinion?
    Now I didn;t like Philipe either, but I know that not everybody has the same type of humor. Not everybody loves Kathy Griffin, not everybody loves Ron White, and not everybody loves Plilipe.
    Every show with voting has the same problem, whether the judges pick the winner or the audience or all of America, not everyone os going to agree with the winner.
    I'm just glad that Last Comic Standing gives a lot of people a shot at doing their kind of comedy on TV, and gives me the opportunity to enjoy a lot of comediens.

    I disagree that it is a matter of taste, when there is such a huge disparity of talent. I have very broad tastes when it comes to comedic styles, but talent is talent. Talent crosses all stylistic boundaries. It is not that there was just one comic who was only a little bit better than Garza. There were several of them, with various styles, and they were much better.

    (The bold formatting, above, is mine.)

    That is definitely a good point, dennisramaekers!
