    Just imagine that thunderfuck trying to be funny on television, in a suit.

      Actually 1992 - 1996

      Here is a review:

      17 October 2003
      No matter how many times I watched this show, I never quite understood its point. Since it was obvious that no conversation happened that was not scripted or directed, it was hard to view it as a 'talk' show. It always felt like a poor imitation of the radio program - except this time Rush seemed to try to be more outrageous in order to top the radio show. It didn't work, and only his most ditto-headish followers took the time to watch what they normally could hear while at work or lunch. Because of its poor ratings, most stations threw it into the late night limbo of syndicated sit-com reruns where it continued to lose viewers until Rush finally gave up on it.

      Of course, rather than concede failure, Rush blamed the "liberals" at the local stations for its demise.

      I did watch it a few times; FSM forgive me, Ramen.
