    I saw one of the shows, maybe two. He had a keyboard right beside the desk and for no discernible reason he would occasionally play the thing for a few seconds. He wasn't funny and in case he wasn't trying for funny, then he wasn't entertaining. I assume he was trying for that. I could be wrong.

    Later he had a roast and everyone got to express their hatred for him. That was great.

    I read that he got really pissed about the roast. Also, he's just a fucking prick in real life.

    I never saw the show, and don't remember even hearing about it until it was long over.

    I definitely would have watched it, though.

    A good thread would be who's considered a prick in show biz. Chevy would be near the top of the list - Bill Murray slugged him for ragging on him about his acne. Milton Berle, Arthur Godfrey, Kathy Lee Gifford, Johnny Carson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bruce Willis, Gregg Hughes, Danny Kaye, Madonna, Jerry Lewis, etc.

    Always heard that he was a prick to everyone in real life, just a total asshole in general.

    You realize that The View is a talk show too, right?

    Just ask Dan Harmon about how much a prick Chevy Chase still is. Just when you thought the guy would have learned something from that roast and turn his career around, he goes and burns that bridge. Ruining a good show in the process.

    That almost gives me some respect for Chevy. The show pulls his career out of the toilet and he tells the guy in charge to fuck himself.

    If Chase went on to do better things, you may have point. But instead he wound playing Clark Griswald again in a commercial for Old Navy.
