    Don’t know much about Anthony Jeselnik but not sure how he’s going to fare as the new host of Last Comic Standing. In my opinion, Bill Bellamy was the best Last Comic Standing host I’ve ever seen. Looking forward to see Norm MacDonald as the new judge even though he was so great on SNL not to mention his amazing run as the anchor on Weekend Update.

      I love Anthony Jeselnik but I too am not sure about him as the host. He has a very dark sense of humor and I’m not sure it’ll translate well to NBC.

  2. Network says:

    Comedy Central tried so hard to make him happen. Problem is he has only one type of joke in his arsenal and not even a really funny one at that. He basically trolls on stage

    I may have to watch this – love Norm MacDonald! I’m not familiar with the other guy, but from comments already posted, it seems I’ve not missed much.

    Good news, J.B got me on my nerves with too much generic babble.

    I approve of new host as not a fan of past one, Norm however is not needed as another judge, what is reasoning, he is also a required taste for may?
