Glenn Beck's Oprah-Like Giveaway Leaves Audience Unimpressed (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 15th 2010 8:23PM
Channeling Oprah's "Favorite Things" episodes, Glenn Beck gave gifts to the studio audience at Tuesday's 'Glenn Beck Program' (weekdays 5PM ET on Fox News).

Beck admitted that the quality of his gifts wouldn't match Winfrey's legendary giveaway largess, and then jokingly admonished his audience for not getting more excited about what was soon to come. "You're supposed to cry and stuff," he pointed out. "Wow, this audience sucks."

Their response was even more tepid when he announced his first gift -- a survival backpack, chock full of all the accessories needed for the end of the world as we know it.

"It's a Christmas survival bag," Beck explained. "Ho, ho, ho, we're all going to die."

We can't really blame the crowd for being less than bowled over by Beck's offering. Once he signaled the survivalist-theme to his Favorite Things giveaway, we were hoping he'd give away some of that valuable gold he's been talking about so much lately.

You sure do know how to twist and spin things to fit your view of how you WANT it to be. This show was actually really great and of course, quite humorous. Trust me, the audience members were a LOT more pleased with the gifts than this post makes it sound. Get over it please...

Looks like Glenn needs his meds recalibrated again.
