"Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn" Probably Going Off the Air -- Unless You Help Out

CNN reports that Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn will be going on haitus in November, and its future will be determined "at that time."

That means they're cancelling it.

If you don't watch the show, it's funnier than Leno and Letterman, and you really ought to check it out. It's on 11:30PM (EST) on Comedy Central.

You might also want to know this: It's one of the most right-wing shows ever put on TV. It has a mix of liberal and conservative comics, but for once the conservatives aren't outnumbered, and Colin Quinn -- the self-styled "Total Package" -- is a strong Bush supporter, and defends Bush night after night.

The show is a little uneven, because how funny it is depends on the comics appearing that night. But when the Big Guns are in -- Nick DiPaolo, Greg Giraldo, and Da Goddess' personal favorite, Jim Norton, are on, it's usually howlingly funny.

So, look: Why not support the show by tuning in once in a while? Especially if you're a Nielsen-metered household. Conservatives have kept a couple of shows off the air; can we keep one on the air?

If you're already a fan of the show, let Comedy Central know it by writing them a little letter at this form. And if you've not yet watched it, check it out this week and then write a letter, telling them, truthfully, you've watched it and you like it.

I wouldn't mention politics or how they need a counter-balance to the left-wing and unfunny John "Cutesy-Cute" Stewart. They don't care about politics; they only care about viewers and ratings.

Quinn beats Leno and Letterman hands-down. I don't think I've watched either of those shows more than three times since "The Total Package" has been up against them. If you're up at 11:30, there are worse ways to spend half an hour.

Sorry to Be So Bossy Update: Jeepers, I've got a BOLO up at the sidebar and now I'm trying to enlist you in saving a show I like a lot. Sorry for the presumption.

But honestly, I think most of the readers here would like the show. I imagine many of you already are watching it anyway.
