    On AGT that performance with the Japanese and their drones was really cool!

      Ditto; my son and I enjoyed the entire show and we don’t usually watch. But, we’re hungry for SOMETHING to watch now,and the pickings are slim

    I love the old guy last night singing metal. Shock the heck of me.

    IMO Maya isn’t remotely entertaining and Marty is a scenery chewing OTT ham. I love a good variety show, but sadly M&M is not it.

    • herman1959 says:

      I know, it was sad because I wanted them to do well.

      • Marci says:

        I’m a fan of both of them, and I really wanted this show to work, but it doesn’t–it’s just boring and the skits are stupid. At 11:00 I watched Carol Burnett and Friends (half-hour compilations of skits from her variety show of the 1970’s) on MeTV. What a contrast. Why can’t TV do shows like this anymore?

        • Lyn says:

          I’m a fan of Marty in films when he can’t overrun himself. Three Amigos, Father of the Bride etc. he’s great. But left to ad-lib he has no idea when enough is enough. Maya has never seemed anything but desperate for attention to me, along the lines of Amy Schumer, Chelsea Handler and Lena Dunham.
