Last night was the much ballyhooed debut of the Wanda Sykes show. After reading about 1oo comments written by viewers, most people didn’t make it past the opening monologue.
The set is small and tacky looking. Bashing Rush Limbaugh isn’t that funny after the first few times. Viewers said she was trying too hard, seemed uneasy with the format etc…. The mean-spiritedness of her comedy turned off many. The enhanced laughter was obvious. All in all she turned off 95% of the posters I read. Some said she lost them as a fan and many just felt it was too painful to continue watching. Those who did regretted it.
Somebody needs to go back to the drawing board and quick.
