It has been a long time since I have seen such a blatant job, to produce a show to make the customer happy. Throughout the length of the program the lions share of the air time is spent lauding the extraordinary "heights" of the productions shown on the Fox Network, for a network that extols the virtues of conservatism they spent an extraordinary amount of time wallowing in the lowest forms of comedy.
Time and time again, with a fifty plus year catalog of animated stars to choose from, they fall back to the past ten or so years to pick the best and if not the best the most prolific. Quantity over quality is a poor substitute for the finding the best in any subject.
Even when including the greats of the past the newest versions were shown, with the exception of Micky's "Steam Boat Willy", when available.
All thing considered the two hours spent watching this program was little more the seeing Fox pat itself on the back for doing a great gob of skewing the voting to put themselves in the best light as purveyor of "TV's Funniest Animated Stars: A Paley Center for Media Special (2015)"
