    Anyone else watch this last night? And was anyone else very disappointed?

    I don't really know what I was expecting but Frankie would have been the last person I pictured donning some silly costume to make a sketch show. None of which was particularly funny imo. Although I did LOL when Loose Women Iran popped up.

    And his stand-up wasn't much to go on either I thought, just sounded like rehashed gags and the odd insult at random people in the crowd . It seemed like he was just going through the same old routine, nothing new.

    What did you guys think of it, personally I think he's trying too hard to be the next Jerry Sadowitz, but having a mainstream TV show doesn't seem the way to do it to me.

    I watched for about 2 minutes- he just isn't really a sketch show type comedian. It wasn't funny, and he looked strange playing different characters (not obviously his fault, but it was just wrong to me )

    I didn't think that it was that bad to be honest. I'd agree about the stand up - I found it to be too much based on insults as well. I did think that some of the sketch bits were actually quite funny - the Knight Rider bit for example.

    I agree, was nowhere near as good as I was expecting. But then I suppose he couldn't have just done stand-up because then that would be pretty much the same as him on MTW or Live at the Apollo etc. Doesn't mean the sketches were particularly good though.
    He's a really funny man to see live but even then you get the sense that everything is a bit too thought-through. Grrrr.

    It was a bit hit-and-miss. I did find George Michael's Highway Code funny.

    Not a patch on his MTW days.

    he doesn't understand that he needs some original material instead of repeating his once original material over and over again.

    If he can't come up with a seemingly endless barrage of offensive jokes then he's not as good as I once thought he was.
