Funny thing, though. The Late Show suddenly started looking better after I watched this shlockfest. At a summertime concert in Kansas City, Mary (Entertainment Tonight) Hart, the Queen of Twink, plays hostess in a bubble gum-pink Big Bird outfit and then tries—rather unsuccessfully—to sing and dance. Bring back Suzanne Somers. Harry Black-stone Jr., the magician, saws a woman in half—drat, it isn't Mary. The Gatlin Brothers, Mary (the Supremes) Wilson and George Burns all sing. Rich Little does the same impressions he always does. And a bunch of dancers dressed up like raisins prance around with less animation than clay. This may be somebody's idea of entertainment. It's my idea of hell.
