You do realize that there were 55 cast members through MADtv's 14 years right MADfan. They couldn't get all of them. It be like American Idol trying to bring back every one of it's final 12 contestants. The money's just not there. It's probably easier for that show, since they have probably only had a handful of longtime hosts.

tvman: You say WHAT about MADtv?

Random Poster: I was just gonna say that MAD About You's first season is on DVD today.

tvman: Oh... continue.

But that's not what happened. I was merely trying to explain your horribly flawed logic MADfan. Do you understand now?

Morgan is one hell of a host, and I'm 95-98% certain this isn't my penis talking. I think her guest appearance this week may have just ruined AOTS for me. She's such a well-oiled machine.

She's completely and utterly fake, uninteresting and just a waste of air time. Here's an itemized list for you:
  1. She's on G4 network which singlehandedly ruined tech-oriented television.
  2. She's on AOTS which every day desecrates the legacy of The Screen Savers.
  3. She is put on the network as one of 100 bimbos who pretend to be "nerdy" by dressing up in comic book costumes or reading scripted dialog about tech stuff, when she's really just a model. The prevailing wisdom is that geeks are idiots and will buy/watch anything if a "hot" chick pretends like she's at all interested in anything they are into (vidya games, anime, comics, etc).
  4. Talentless.
  5. Overrated in terms of physical appearance. No breasts, no ass. It's just that people judge her on a "nerd chick" scale when in reality she isn't that either.
  6. Does a non-nude pictorial in Playboy. Seriously, WTF. That is effectively stealing Hugh Hefner's money while acting like you're above the publication that pays you. Nobody gives a shit that you took some bikini or handbra photos. Go take that nonsense to Cosmo. Where I come from it's tits or GTFO and she does neither.

So in short, I hope her show fails and I hope she dies in some sort of fire.

Oh yeah, I forgot about this. I don't get G4 but just for the Playboy thing, fuck this bitch (and not the good way)!

Looks like Munn is now a Daily Show correspondent as well. Better learn to appreciate her, 'cause soon, there'll be no escape from her.

Never could I have guessed that the list of problems with Olivia Munn that Nemisis told me about just weeks ago could have come to effect me this way. See ya Daily Show. Now that your pandering to the slacker audience is complete I, and hopefully everyone else will have no more use for you

Steve Carell, Steven Colbert, Ed Helms, Olivia Munn. Yup, doesn't work. Goodbye Daily Show. Your best years are now officially behind you.

I saw a horrible interview she did back on the old Spike Ferenstine show, that was just so campy and annoying (much like the show was), and even if I haven't seen a lot of what she's done let's not forget that she appeared on Playboy without showing her boobs or vag, and when someone who is bearly known gets treated like a huge star, so huge that she can go against what the magazine has done for 50 years, that's just unforgivable.

Also, you can just tell that she's full of herself in the interview. From the Obama thing, to the fact that she's trying to tell the story of what happened and slipping in the F-word every whenever a question is asked to her. Which she obivously didn't say but she's trying to make herself sound cooler by saying it, and if that's going to be her style on the Daily Show, then goodbye Daily Show.

I haven't been watching the Daily Show recently, mostly for lack of time but if she stays on as a regular player, I will definitely not pick the show back up. I know she can't be entirely (or even significantly) blamed for the transformation of intelligent tech-oriented TV (ZDTV, early TechTV) into what G4 is now (SPIKE for virgins), but she's still a collaborator. She is to G4 TV as the Hungarian SS was to the holocaust, if I can blow things way out of proportion.

Anyways, she's not funny, she's got an immensely over-inflated sense of self-importance and I really just wish I would never have to hear about/from her again.

Olivia Munn is kind of like that chick that saw Star Wars ONCE and then was like, "LOOK AT ME I'M SUCH A NERD NOW I AM SO IMMERSED IN NERD CULTURE!!!111210ONEOEN"

I'm also kind of mad at the Daily Show for doing this. What made the Daily Show great was that it was a launching pad for great comedians like Steve Carell, Steven Colbert, and Jamie Oliver just to name a few. By hiring Olivia, someone who already has a following, that just feels like they are pandering to the hipster, and guys who think that because they watch the Daily Show they know things about politics crowd. It just devalues the show.
