Meh, it's a little late for this post (the series premiere was last Wednesday) but I think this show may have some legs ... It's like Comedy Central took two of their all-time popular properties (Dave Chapelle and the Daily Show) and merged them into one super black-and-white cookie (en.wikipedia.org) of awesomeness; yummy.
I've always been a fan of David Alan Grier's, but what really sold me was the fact that his opening monologue lamented the death of hip-hop, but then they gave us the greatest hip-hop song ever recorded (youtube.com) ... Seriously, if they released a version without the studio audience that was like two minutes longer on iTunes, I would buy it.
Hell, I don't even have an iTunes account OR an MP3 player, but I'd still buy it.
The most hilarious thing about Tommy Dreamer is that everyone else in WWE, from Shelton Benjamin to dudes who haven't even debuted yet, has a T-shirt available. WWE doesn't even bother printing up a T-shirt for Tommy Dreamer, A MAN WHOSE GIMMICK IS WEARING A T-SHIRT WHILE WRESTLING. And why is that? Because not a god damn person would ever pay money for a Tommy Dreamer shirt. Not even his own mother. As a result he usually ends up wearing a shirt that says "WRESTLEMANIA 24" or "JUDGEMENT DAY." I think it's time for Tommy Dreamer to just print up a T-shirt that says "UPCOMING PAY PER VIEW"
After the first two times we watched this, my wife told me to stop talking to the TV. I am operating under the assumption that each contestant has a 1 in 26 (3.85%) chance in selecting the million dollars.
