How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The host was obnoxious, the musical offerings were depressing and best and annoying at their worst ("Her skin is cinnamon! Her skin is cinnamon! Her skin is cinnamon!" sung over and over at the top of your lungs does not make a an enjoyable musical experience), the whole show was so uncomfortable that I laughed thinking it was supposed to be silly, but then realized the artists were really taking themselves seriously. The exceptions were the non-musical offerings: the comic-strip book critic, the author and the of the two comedians were highly entertaining and/or made us think (although Bobcat Goldthwait would probably agree on the poor quality of the show - even he was making fun of the experience). Oh, and the guy from Cake was great. (But the host kept trying to interject his own special touches instead of just letting the poor guy sing his own songs!) Put me down as a curmudgeon - I just didn't get it.
