I always loved Red Buttons. He was great in movies like "The Longest Day" (" Loud and Clear, sir!" and the Poseidon Adventure, but he was also great on all the TV shows I remember from when I was a kid. He'd be on Johnny Carson, Dean Martin, even Laugh-in. A funny, Funny guy, especially for an old guy. The Times did a nice Obit for him, and it's worth reading.
I thought it was a fun show last night. Though there were some really boring guys, overall they could sing pretty well. That David A. kid, well he just rules. None of the "rocker" guys did much for me.
