This is the first regular episode of "The 1/2 Hour News Hour," and follows the success of the earlier two pilot episodes. In addition to the regular segments, Dennis Miller introduces an editorial segment called "The Buck Starts Here" where he comments on the current state of affairs in the USA, and Laura Ingram makes a guest appearance in a commercial.moreless
This first true episode has segments that are destined to be classics. Laura Ingram stands out in her fake commercial. The show is well on its way to a great first season.
The first of the great skits is Laura Ingram for "OxyClinton." Not since "Fukitol" have I seen a medication with more uses in modern society. Without any spoilers, let's say the doctor explains a new medication for a new condition that is hilarious in it's reality. The second moment set to be a classic is the workplace consultant. The anchor desk will not be the same! I loved this one! The one point that limited my score was the opening with "Duke vs Rutgers." It was a bit pushed and to edgy for me. Enjoy this one, it's a great installment.moreless
