EPISODE REVIEWS


Ray Romano / The Corrs
March 13, 1999


[OPENING] Barbara Walters looking for phone sex
This was an awsome opener. Cheri Oteri has a dead on Barbra Walters and
Darrell Hamond's Connary can't get any better."I'D START WILL A SEXY OPEN
HANDED SLAP" 8/10

 

[MONOLOGUE] Ray Romano
All comedian hosts should just do stand up. Its 3x as funny. It would save
al whole lot of monolauges from bombing. 9/10

 

[SKETCH] ESPN SportsCenter
This had to be the best sketch of the night. This sketch made you realize
how great Tim Meadows is. "BOO YA!" Ray and Tims chemistry was great. "AND
HE"S CELEBRATING LIKE A SLAVE THAT MADE IT TO THE NORTH" HAHA. They will be
getting about as many calls about that as the Canteen Boy sketch. 10/10

 

[COMMERCIAL] VH1 Behind the Music: Meatloaf
Sanz does a great Meatloaf but this was nothing great. 6/10

 

[SKETCH] Roberto Benigni has restaurant in stitches
Romono does a dead on Benini(excuse the spelling)The best part was when
Romono put his face in Molly Shannon's breasts. I was rollingon the
freakin;' ground. Sanz was also great. 7/10

 

[SKETCH] Pimp Chat
I didn't really like this sketch the first time but Ray Romono was just gut
busting hillareous. "I SUPERSIZE MY HOES." The Holyfield/Lewis remark was
pretty good. Yet again Sanz was just awsome. The Cheri Oteri part didn't
bring anything to the sketch. 6.5/10

 

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Colin Quinn
I'd hate to say it but Quinn did a good job this time 'round. If there was
an bad joke, afterward he wouldn't try to tell the audience to laugh or any
of those kinda comments which is better. The Monica Lewinsky segment was not
that good and I hardly laughed but on the other hand the Cheri Oteri segment
was just awesome. Colin's "women asking for directions" comment was the
BEST. 8/10

 

[SKETCH] Suel Forrester at the NCAA
I don't like this character much but this time he was pretty funny. The next
thing Lorne will be doing is making a movie out of this guy. 5/10

 

[SKETCH] Office guy resorts to crying
This was gold! Will Ferrell and only Will Ferrell could do this! The juice
box part was the best! It also had a great closing."LETS GO GET A LAP
DANCE." 10/10

 

[SKETCH] Quit judging my dreams!
This was pretty screwed up but kinda funny at the same time. It had a really
bad ending.
5/10

 

OVERALL
This was one of the top 5 shows of the season. Ray Romono is a comic genius.
BOO YA!
