The Megan Mullally Show
It's that time again... time to try and judge the new programs on TV. My first victim is The Megan Mullally Show. I had high expectations for this show- I've been waiting for it all summer. I adored Megan as Karen Walker on Will and Grace and I was very excited that she was going to have her own talk show.
I caught the first show on Monday. When the show opened with a corny musical number I thought, "This is Rosie meets Ellen." It was a total turn off. Then her first guest was Will Ferrell. He is not a favorite of mine mainly because he is not funny. I felt like Megan was stiff, uncomfortable, and stumbling. Also, the glare of the studio lights on her glasses was very annoying. I finished the show hoping for more but was disappointed.
I thought before I could pass judgement I needed to try another show. So today I caught the beginning of the show. I was interested to see Lisa Kudrow, who I find funny, so maybe the show would be better. After Lisa's interview, I turned it off. Megan, disappointly, comes off as boring, not funny, and out of her element. It seems like she has trouble just chatting with guests. It makes it awkward to watch.
