Thursdays Are Funny

Except they're not, are they? Not judging from Vivienne Vyle and The Peter Serafinowicz Show last night... both really disappointing (though more so when it comes to the latter - Duane Benzie is meant to be funnier than that!). I literally didn't laugh once during Vivienne Vyle, and it seems to have come about five years too late. So Jeremy Kyle-style shows are exploitative? Really! And The PS Show was just a bit weird. The hits certainly didn't outweigh the (inevitable at the best of times) misses, and while he's clearly a great character comedian, the writing sucked. Not a good hour of TV...

Be nice to Peter, or you'll end up all bitter and twisted like me. ;-)

I agree. I had high hopes for an interesting evening, but the shows somehow didn't meet expectations. There seems to be too much repetition, particularly with the PS show.

Maybe needs more writers.
