For his new job hosting a talk show, William Shatner suppresses his usual self-parodying bluster, which is a relief. Then again, solemnly attempting to get Valerie Bertinelli to open up about food addiction and career-vs.-family, he still comes across as some sort of a put-on. You wonder how she must feel as he keeps mentioning the time he was invited to dinner by Rose Kennedy. But such behavior is all part of his inscrutability, and his staying power.
