'In the Flow with Affion Crockett' Puts Rush Limbaugh and Chris Rock Together (VIDEO)

'Rush Limbaugh' and 'Chris Rock,' 'In the Flow with Affion Crockett''In the Flow with Affion Crockett' (Sun., 9:30PM ET on FOX) has been a real mixed bag, and it hasn't found much audience support. That said, though, Crockett does have some pretty spot-on impressions, and there are funny bits to be found on the show. We were particularly impressed with his take on Chris Rock.

Crockett matched both his unique voice and cadence, as well as his body tics perfectly. It made for an awkward sketch with the show's impression of Rush Limbaugh, because it just wasn't nearly as good.

Luckily, "Rock" got the best lines, so we could forgive the awkward Limbaugh impression a bit. The sketch was a talk show format where the two discussed various questions. The best responses came when they were asked if Christopher Columbus discovered America.

"Limbaugh" said that as the Native Americans weren't doing anything with the land, we could just take it. "It's like a bunch of dogs hanging out in a yard, taking a s***," he said. "Doesn't mean they own the land."

"Rock's" response? "If I kick in your f****** door and you happen to be there and I say, 'Hey, this is now my house,' did I discover your house, or was that a home invasion?" It worked because it's funny, and it's believable as something Rock would actually say.

After six weeks, Affion Crockett is done on FOX, but he did show some promise. Maybe another network will give him a second chance, or he might just head back to the cyberspace that spawned him.
