Oprah and Dave

I have to say I was a little bit underwhelmed by the big show.

The best part of the show was Oprah's presentation of an autographed photo of her and Uma.

I kept waiting for the funny, but it never arrived. Instead what we got was Dave's usual fawning but without any of the bite. Dave never asked an awkward question. As a gag, Dave had Tony Danza in the wings as a guest host stand-in in case things went badly. He should have called him out. It would have been a better show.

When Dr. Phil came on the first time, he brought a list he had prepared of some of the snide jokes Dave had made at his expense and put Dave on the spot to explain himself. That was funny.

As many shots as he's taken at Oprah, the autographed picture was the best she could do?


I'd rather listen to him talk to Biff.
