Skewered for it's crassness...
23 August 2005 | by MicheauxSee all my reviews

It was almost impossible to have seen this show in it's very short run. While featuring some names of note, (Paul Krassner had written for Crawdaddy magazine), the tone of the humor was rather cruel and condescending. It was as if the network had felt that accentuating the mean streak in David Letterman's humor, they could appeal to the same demographic. While there are the occasional replacement shows that go on to strike it big, such as "NewsRadio", this sank and sank fast.

This show was so disliked, Steve Allen commented at a celebrity party, "If a bomb hit this room, the folks at the "Wilton North Report" could all find work."
