    You can't call the "inventer" of a comedy bit derivative because everyone has copied him. No one delivers the snark like Spade, and the longer format should yield some interesting shows as David gets more comfortable working solo.

    Spade pulls no punches, and rightly so. In fact, If he ever get tired of punching stupid, superficial starlets in the ego, he can look me up! I would gladly sub for 'em! ROCK ON!

    [The show] isn't bad, but it's the sort of humor that has become so institutionalized it feels safe.
  2. The premiere winds up misfiring more often than it connects with various jabs, hooks, sucker punches and haymakers, too often going in for outlandish spoof at the expense of cleverness and irony.

    Essentially, this pancake-flat debut amounted to a 30-minute "Weekend Update" segment devoted entirely to Hollywood, filled with about three minutes of actual comedy.
