Now normally I don’t do episode reviews but wanted to air my thoughts on Jeff Ross’ new show. Now this is what happens if you took The Daily Show/Colbert Report, Tosh.0, and Chelsea Lately but didn’t include any of the positive things about this show. Now this show featured a few different segments, all of which in the end were pointless. First off the set is meant to look cheap but I mean come on, they are in a empty warehouse and the audiance is on folding chairs. Some of the camera shots even show other cameras and workers. It looked cheap.
The show features Jeff Ross doing a crack at current things that he doesn’t like, a random segment where him and Sarah Silverman just hang out, more of him talking and a family video, then a Chelsea Lately panel almost where they crack jokes. Now none of this is funny really. I found Jeff Ross for once not funny and only laughed a few times but that was from Sarah Silverman and Ralphie May. Other than that I felt a lot of the jokes fell flat and it just was like watching many of the other hit comedy shows without the laughs.
I really don’t see this show lasting more than a season and would not be surprised if it was cancelled midseason and Tosh re-runs were played during it. Jeff Ross tried making a show that is a duplicate of other shows on the network and other channels and he didn’t do anything new or funny with it. It’s quite the disappointment.
