You know it is an ass-kicking when an edited 2 hour show only has 1 hour worth of material to air. Fred Willard needed his wife to help him, as happened on the Hollywood Home Game, perhaps that would have kept Theo Huxtable from causing poker to turn into an extra episode of Queer Eye. Of course, when the game ends on only $200 and $400 blinds, it demonstrates conservative play was not fashionable at the table. And, Fred Willard getting drunk and providing commentary in the losers lounge was a promising incentive heading into the show.

An HOUR?! That's it, after last week's Thursday rerun time mystery and now this, the show is toying with us. The only explanation can be that the producers are too battered by desperate agents of mid-level celebs to keep the truly clueless off the show.

An hour. When I turned on the Bravo channel at 9: 15, I found Queer Eye and though CPS had been moved. But then they aired the ad for next week's championship game, and I was baffled.

An hour ... wow.

From the way the commentary sounded, I think the show probably barely made the hour, padded out just by interviews and face time in the losers' lounge. Malcolm Jamal-Warner just devoured the table whole. The kid from Desperate Housewives was the only guy who seemed to have the skills to compete, but he blew everything going on all in on a bluff.

Be interesting next week to see how Malcolm fares in the finals after having almost no competition to really measure him against so far.
