Well, if you received the TV guide in the mail today, you already had it spoiled for you, as they named the final 6 comics.
With 7 comics left, the so-called alliance of this season completely falls apart, with the exception of Kathleen & Tammy.
The immunity competition was nowhere near as good as last week. John & Kathleen were the only ones to really get any reaction from the kids. Jay turning it into a safety lecture was amusing. Kathleen wins immunity to the utter shock of nobody, and even gets free vittles! I'm amused that Corey sounded like he knew what he was talking about when he ordered, but didn't recognize the food when he received it.
I drifted a bit. Where did the dog come from?
Unlike Rich Vos last season, nobody has really stood out as the leader of the house. Tammy tried, but failed utterly miserably.
I finally realized that John Heffron is a younger Brian Regan. His look's close, and the mannerisms are almost alike.
The votes were all over the place. Gary Gulman and Jay London both got tied at two votes apiece, so they went head to head.
I like Jay London. He's got an interesting style, and he's funny. But he's a bar comic, not a competitive stand-up comic. Gary decimated him by doing a stand-up routine, and not a series of one-liners.
The show is still Kathleen Madigan's to lose. I'm betting S3 will go back to using unestablished comics.

Mrs. Teppan didn't like London's style; I thought it was more a cerebral, Vaudeville style that didn't fit the show. He's an interesting character, that's for sure.
Regarding Gulman, we'll see if his amount of time in elimination match-ups helps him out if he makes it to the Final 5. Gulman, to me, is very Seinfeld-like in his act, and that could go far. I'm voting for him or Corey, depending if they make it to the F5.
And if it hasn't been mentioned, a new LCS starts after the Olympics in what was going to be Average Joe's spot, and AJ will start midseason.

Last week, I thought that Gulman was pretty weak, relying on his same schtik from before. Last night though, I laughed at pretty much everything he said. He really showed me something, and now I don't know whether I want him or my boy Johnny H. to win the whole thing.
One thing is certain though...Tammy is the most annoying person since...well...Ant.

Hence the underlying problem with this show (aka the Dat Phan factor). The comics are going to use their best material when elimination is on the line. It's why you end up seeing so much repitition in their routines. Dat Phan won last season because he established what his best act was, and used it repeatedly.
I'd so pay to see a Jay London/Jim Wiggins double feature, though.

This is pretty much my favorite show on the tv right now. The drama was turned way down this week 'cept for Tammy trying to start some shit. I thought all the guys might vote for her, but maybe she's right and they all are big pussies. If Tammy still keeps pissing people off, she's likely to get the most votes next week and get carted back to midcard comedy hell. There is no one left that Tammy has a chance to beat so I think it's pretty safe to say bye bye.
The previews for next week show the castaways coming back. Sweet...Todd and Bonnie back for revenge...Does that mean Ant is coming back too??!? NOOOOOOOoooOOOO. Maybe they'll lock him in his old room, the one no one will stay in anymore cause it's haunted...lol.
