David Spade gets new show
I don't know what other people think, but I think David Spade is funny as hell. I haven't seen any of his movies, I'm going by his SNL days, Just Shoot Me, 8 Simple Rules, and his guest appearances and commercials. Sure, a lot of his performances are the same type of character, but nobody does that type of character better than Spade, and I laugh out loud every time I see the guy.
He's getting his own satire show on Comedy Central, The Showbiz Show With David Spade, and it sounds a lot like the Weekend Update showbiz reports he used to do on SNL. I'm looking forward to this. If it can live up to the what Comedy Central spokesman Steve Albini said ("It will do for Hollywood and the entertainment media what The Daily Show does for news and politics"), then it could be must-see stuff.
