Picks and Pans Review: Talk Show with Spike Feresten

UPDATED 11/13/2006 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 11/13/2006 at 01:00 AM EST

FOX (Saturdays, 12 a.m. ET)

Feresten, whose claim to fame prior to this half-hour show was as a Seinfeld writer, makes an odd physical impression: He has Dave Letterman's old blazer-and-jeans look, topped with Ellen DeGeneres's hair. The show, FOX's small-scale assault on late night, has an absurd, blunt sense of humor that usually misses (encouraging sponsors to take out ads on a staff writer's fat back) but occasionally connects: A dogfight movie that uses cheese puffs instead of planes? Liked that quite a bit.
