Bill Maher on ‘Huckabee’ Show

Regular readers of this blog, of which there are, uh, several, know that if there are two things I don’t care for, it’s Mike Huckabee’s FOX News Show “Huckabee,” of which I am mildly disapproving because it’s so boring, and smirking comedian Bill Maher, of whom I am wildly disapproving because he’s so smug, unfunny and generally odious.

So as if the gods are mocking me, these two great tastes that don’t taste great together are now to be found in one package. Here’s Maher on “Huckabee” last night talking about his new flick “Religulous” and debating religion with the former governor, who shows remarkable forbearance with the obnoxious funnyman:

The New York Times reviewed “Huckabee” yesterday, along with a new show by comedian D.H. Hughley on CNN, noting that the two networks “developed these shows to cash in on the new, younger viewers drawn to cable news — and political satire — this election year.” I’ve watched “Huckabee” several times, and I’m not entirely sure what “younger viewers” this show is engineered to appeal to. Unless the usual FOX News Saturday night viewer is, like, 90, and they’re trying to rope in that coveted 80-year-old demographic.

    Hey, I only caught a tiny slice of “Huckabee” but I thought the band was dropped. I thought sure TAP would have commentary on that change in format. Somebody decided automaton, discordant 60s rock wasn’t an audience builder? Say it ain’t so. Or maybe it was just to allow the extra fulmination from Eagleburger.

    Well, hell, Max now you’re forcing me to admit that I didn’t watch the entire show. But if your report is true and The Little Rockers have broken up, this could be the biggest news to hit the music world since the Beatles fell apart.

    The Little Rockers did indeed play as the climax to a great show.

    Brent,
    That’s disappointing news. All these bootleg Little Rockers CDs and T-shirts that I’d invested in would be worth a lot more if they broke up.
