Dr Mumbo

It’s bad. It’s bad. It’s really, really bad

Dr Mumbo rather wishes he saw Nine’s rapidly aired tribute to Michael Jackson. If the reviewes are anythign to go by, it was historically bad television.  

The TV Tonight blog has posted possible the shortest TV review in Australian television history, with just one word: “A-p-p-a-l-l-i-n-g“.

Equally entertaining are the viewer comments about hosts Karl Stefanovic and Leila McKinnon:

“This was probably the biggest, most hastly thrown together piece of garbage to grace our screens in long time. Absolutley Sh*t hosts and reporters. “Ohh it’s fantastic to be here Karl” shut up Leila, the mans fricken died not releasing a new album.”

“Karl made a fool of himself again,acting like stupid schoolboy.Karls constant fake laughs and grinning really childish.”

“For Nine to essentially chuck together some show-biz dregs, a few brotherly ‘hosts’ and an hour of junky, ramblings between two obvious nobodies, and sell it as an MJ special is pathetic…”

“This was the most disingenous piece of garbage I’ve ever seen.”

From the victory of getting the Today show live streamed, to the defeats of announcing Jeff Goldblum was dead and on to this, it’s not looking like Nine’s covered itself in celebsville glory is it?
