Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

The bland series features Norm MacDonald engaged in free-flowing, rambling-like banter with interesting guests, with the help of handheld blue note cards. The conversations that take place seem to lack direction, but this, along with the host's deadpan style, is part of the overall shtick.

During each interview, the cast sits at a desk on a sound stage in front of some of the show's production staff. But despite the occasional laughter from crew members, the show's energy is pretty low, thanks to the lack of a real studio audience. Perhaps longtime Norm MacDonald fans will tune in, but Norm MacDonald Has a Show is pretty weak on laughs.
