Oh boy, I love Dave Attell - heck, I've seen him twice in person in San Francisco... hilarious doesn't begin to describe his personal brand of filthy-based comedy. Sadly, this classic game show reboot was pretty bad. I didn't expect much but it produced below even the low bar I set for it.

Out of morbid curiosity, I watched this, and it was as painful as I
thought it was going to be. I liked Dave Attell's Insomniac Theater in
small doses, and I hoped this would be at least as good as that, but it
wasn't.

It's depressing, boring, tedious, and deeply embarrassing. Atell
himself seems deeply distressed and embarrassed (similar to Louie
Anderson and his horrible stint on Family Feud) to be hosting such a
mediocre show. The celebrity judges seem to feel the same way as well.
You actually feel sorry for them trying (in vain) to make this show
worth watching. While it has better production values than the original
Gong Show, it's actually worse than the original, because the original
Gong Show had terrible production values and was cheesy as anything on
TV before or since, but Chuck Barris (the original host) kind of knew
that. That quality is what has endeared it to many (even though I was never a huge fan of the original).

I doubt this will last more than one season.
