I found it amusing, particularly the Samantha Brown segment. I was definitely in the mood for roast duck after it was over. i thought the young lady singing the Christmas songs was very good too.

    I was flicking back and forth to it. The Samantha Brown segment was indeed amusing. She must be a good sport. The young lady singing was Nora Jones who I also think is very good. She also has an interesting lineage.

    What really grabbed my attention was that platter from I believe Barnie Greengrass.

      Yes, that platter looked absolutely awesome. And Samantha was actually quite funny (and a good sport)!

        I have a new found respect for Samantha Brown. Takes guts to make fun of yourself like that on tv.

        I didn't realize that Norah Jones was Ravi Shankar's daughter, your lineage comment just led me to Google it.

        I enjoyed it. And I'm a big Norah Jones fan, so that was an intersting little treat.

          Are you familiar with her work with Wax Poetic?

          It was interesting if a bit drawn out, but Tony must be smoking some good stuff and Samantha was a great with the pistol named Paula. The only thing missing was a jab at Richman.

            I don't think Tony needs to be "smoking some good stuff" in order to put on a good tongue-in-cheek show. Good grief.

              Yeah, I agree but Tony's tongue was INHO ,quite a bit further south.
