The Long and the Short of it

Spamalot's Clay Aiken in costume as the dashing but not-so-brave Sir Robin.

Well, Rosie Live! came and went. Clay's 90 seconds didn't make or break the show and fortunately his bit was not one of the show's lowlights.

After reading dozens of reviews and comments, here it is in a nutshell.

_ There was too much Rosie.
_ There were lots of talented guests.
_ The talented guests were underused.
_ Clay Aiken should have sang.
_ There should have been more Harry Connick singing.
_ Poor Gloria Estefan. She's much better than the material she was given.
_ Jane Krakowski too.
_ The live theater setting was too dark and didn't translate to TV.
_ The stage setting, low level production and bad camera work looked cheap.
_ Nobody cared about Rosie's undergarments or cleavage.
_ Nobody wanted to hear about Rosie's political views.
_ She should not have tried to sing with Liza or Gloria.
_ The wrong guy pushed the pie in Conan's face.
_ Kathy should leave the comedy to professionals.
_ I'm told it was Alanis Morrissette but I think it was a palsied Bjork on LSD...
_ Ne-Yo was a No-Yo.
_ No more spinning rugs or random tap dancing.
_ No more dancing cupcakes. Ever.

Ellen has her variety special tonight. Break a leg!
