The Half Hour News Hour

I Tivo'd the Half Hour News Hour on Fox News tonight as a little treat for me after the Oscars. I've now watched it and I'm disappointed. There is potential there, but it has a lot of flaws. The laugh track stinks. The anchors are fake but not personable, which means it completely misses out on the whole "Weekend Update" feel. The jokes are okay and I'm sure that with a few more episodes, the writers will jell and they'll get better, but the laugh track and the overly fake and somewhat unlikeable anchors will still kill the laughs.
