I’m sorry, y’all... but two minutes into D.L. Hughley’s monologue on his brand new CNN show, I had to walk away.
Weak-ass jokes make the baby Jesus cry.
Hughley is not now, nor has he ever been, a sharp political comic. He’s not deep like that. And he ain’t too funny otherwise.
I don’t know how he got this gig, but I blame Barack Obama.
UPDATE (10/26/08): Okay... this time I made it halfway through before I had to quit. I just couldn’t take any more.
Oh well. You can’t spell cooning without C-N-N.
I will check out “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News” next week. Maybe they’ll tighten their game up by then. If not, I predict a quick cancellation.
