Another Rickles Show Bites The Dust
11 December 2000 | by hillariSee all my reviews

I love Don Rickles, and I faithfully watched this show knowing full well that it would be cancelled down the line. There wasn't a whole lot of chemistry between Rickles and Richard Lewis, but they were interesting to watch. I don't think Rickles' insult humor translates well to TV, seeing that he has had several sitcoms that didn't make it. Besides, he wasn't given a chance to let loose like we all know he can.
