Since Monday night is clearly the worst night on television I did more surfing than Luke Perry tried to do on Beverly Hills 90210. And finally at around 9PM I couldn’t believe my eyes. Yup, it was Dennis Miller on Monday Night Raw hosting WWE’s Slammy Awards?
Dennis Miller is introduced and walks to the Slammy Podium situated stage right. Miller goes off script (or so he says) with some of his own jokes, and bombs. He then draws comparisons between politics and wrestling. (I think this is hilarious, but the crowd is DEEEAAAADDDD!) Miller then promotes his charity, Usacares.org.
And if any of you saw last night, that quote about sums it up. Did anyone think this would come off as successful? Putting Dennis Miller’s sophisticated political jokes together with a bunch of rednecks from Texas? Um, hello? Not such a great call Mr. McMahon.
What the hell has happened to Dennis Miller? I’m 100% convinced his life has turned into utter turmoil since completely bombing on Monday Night Football. I mean he was so out of place there it wasn’t even remotely funny. I mean I literally felt bad watching it every single time.
Now he’s doing WWE in a blazer and jeans? Did anyone catch this? He was friggin miserable. And having to announce wrestlers as if they were like moviestars or something? “Winner of 13 championships and a tag team title!” Man was that sad.
Miller belongs on his own talk show spitting out hatred at people. That’s the only stage he can carry, and I will add that he did carry it well for some time. But as we all know, Jon Stewart does it way way better on the Daily Show. So unfortunately for Dennis he’ll have to take any gig he can get.
I’m hearing his next job will be hosting Strong Man Competitions around the country.
