What, the AARP of networks? They've got this one nailed.

I think it's just weird to do a show based on a real person who is on TV the same day on another network. Lewis Black has a great bit on this on his first album. "The network called back and said I had given a great audition. Why? Because I'm ME! But then they said someone had given a better one. Unbeknownst to me ... there was a better ME!"

What's odd to me is that it is CBS and not ABCDisneyPN.

Alexander is a second banana, always has been and always will be. I was a year or two behind him in school growing up and I doubt he's changed much since, except for an even bigger ego and waistline, and less hair.

Billy - as a sometime pitch-man for fried chicken, his ego has hopefully taken a serious pounding now. That said - he's genuinely a funny guy.

Weedy, funny perhaps but not a leading man.

I've only known Kornheiser from PTI, but it makes since that an abrasive, annoying, bald guy will play an abrasive, annoying, bald guy. Weedy, funny perhaps but not a leading man. As he's already proven.
