I think the emphasis away from big name satellite interviews to more raw comedy is paying off. Rove's strength is his ability to be himself and make a wacka out of himself, and that shone through on Tuesday night. Even his interview with both Rebecca Gibney and Michael were natural and engaging.
The production values are - as always - very good, but especially recently. The zooming over to the band of the week and the small things like transitions and the way the program goes to credits, it's all put together really well.
Anyway, good to see Rove Live on a roll..

ROVE IS SO NOT FUNNY. He is crap now, he fills the time slots with stupid comedy and repeats jokes untill you think wtf! example- the drummer skit, funny first time round, boring second time. And wtf with that stupid Dr Phil impression by peter, if he wants more air time then he should get a show of his own. I would also like to lash out at his sh*tty intro that he does, he is not funny, he needs to get a professional to write his material i mean last week he craped on about the Davinci Code for like 5 minutes....boring . I will give him a break on guest as he really dosn't have much control ones from the U.S. but there are plenty of aussie(as you guys have been saying) that I would to see interviewed. Also things that need attention: What the?.... Omg a seashell that looks like Australia, com---mon!!!, pranking people... funny once never again, impressions of john howard - a least make it watchable.
There are so many hosts in america that make their shows intresting like letterman and elle, im not saying be like america but rove really needs to get a professional in to: - write his material - moderate stupid skits objectivly - organise his show so if flows better - find interesting guests and have interesting discussions or get a new host(no not peter).
I think those little things in the middle like pete interupting during an interview are good, once. Rove wastes to much time with crappy little gags rather then interesting stuff. And yes i don't like pete. When i was talking about letterman i ment that his show was 80% interviews 20% crap. Rove however, is more like 50% interviews and 50% crap. There is to much crap and his guest suck!!!
Well, humour is very subjective, but personally I like the direction Rove is going, especially in the absence of much other Australian comedy. I thought those bits with Bob Geldoff were pretty good. Never seen Bob do anything like that before.
