Fuck ABC. During a commercial break in the NBA pre-game broadcast, I flipped thru the channels. I stopped on ABC. There was a program with people doing impressions of celebrities. You know the drill, 3 judges making fun of the people "auditioning". The impersonations were generally awful, although one guy did a perfect Sam Kinison. What insulted me was when an old lady came out and did a Celia Cruz impression. During an audition on the bottom of the screen they would show the name of whom the person was impersonating. During the Celia segment ??? was listed as who the lady was doing. OK, so here's a Spanish lady with a huge blue wig, wearing a sequined dress singing Quimbara and no one connected with the show has any idea who this is supposed to be? If you don't know who I'm talking about, Celia was the Queen of Salsa. One of the greatest singers of the 20th century.

Brain: Oh, that Ted Arcidi. He's a wonderful human being.

Wouldnt you think that the contestants have to go through some sort of screening process, or at least tell the producers of the show who they plan on impersonating before they go on the show?? That's weird.

Or maybe the impersonation was so bad that they put the "???" on the screen as a joke on her? Either way, still weird.

I enjoyed this show for the most part, but Jeffery Ross is about as unfunny as they come ... specially after the whole Jerry Lewis/kid in a wheelchair crack.

There was a movie in the works a long time ago with Joss Whedon attached to direct. Then Whedon was suddenly dumped and the entire thing was quietly scrapped.
