I cringed with embarrassment as I sat watching with my out of town Thanksgiving Day guests. I had told them that Rosie was putting on a good old fashioned variety show and that I was so happy to see a show like that on tv again. But it wasn't a good old fashioned variety show. It was awful, plain awful. Amateurish, immature even. Something that I would expect to see in a high school auditorium! The opening with Rosie and Liza was hokey and...why was Rosie singing? Alec Baldwin seemed awkward and why did Conan show up to get a pie in his face? But Clay Aiken took the cake! Why did he walk through in his Spam-a-lot costume and why did Rosie crack a bad gay joke with him? The show was just that lame that it ended with dancing food. Just bad.
Oh how I so wanted this show to be good!
