    Too bad -- although his opening monologues are usually lame, he always has interesting guests.

    Tomorrow (5/13) will be his last show.

    I tried watching his show a few times, but could never really stand him. It's as if he failed his anger management classes. [​IMG]

    I'm a big fan of his stand up and didn't mind his first show (caught it when I could) but I have never seen a single episode of the new one, from what I've heard it's surprising it lasted this long...maybe if he kept the Tears for Fears intro song...[​IMG]

    That's a shame, I really enjoyed his show.

    Loved his HBO show but couldn't stand him on MNF or his CNBC show. Go figure? I would like to see him go back to doing more comedy and less sports/politics. I love political shows and sports programming, I just felt he was trying to hard to be too funny and it seemed out of place. I guess if I was going to say something nice about that show is it was infinitely better than John McEnroe's show. [​IMG]

    I don't watch much of any of those [O-Reilly, H&C, Scarb. Country, etc.], but Dennis' was the only one I made an effort to switch over to during Network commercials.

    Political humor can be very funny. But when it becomes too much of a polemic, most comedians can't pull it off--they want to make the political point more than making the joke.

    For me, Miller had gone too far down the path of making a political point and has become less funny than he was (on HBO for example).

    He tended to become an apologist for the current Administration and he grilled almost all of his guests on their political support thoughts; not to get their ideas but to try and convince them that the current course was the "correct" course of action.

    There was a 2 or 3 week period that ALL of his guests disagreed with him and his obvious frustration took away all the comedy.

    I hope he takes this opportunity to get the psychiatric help he so obviously needs.

    I too love his standup and liked his HBO show and I tried to watch this show but I just couldn't stay with it. It just didn't interest me.

    I never liked his standup and his show sucked. Good riddance! [​IMG]
