In review: Huck and Hughley

Posted By on Fri, Oct 31, 2008 at 10:12 PM

The NY Times Alessandra Stanley reviews Mike Huckabee's new show on Fox and D.J. Hughley's on CNN, both generally light-hearted efforts to capitalize on current interest in politics.

Huck, says Stanley: "more earnest than funny;" "points for collegiality"; a show "so basic" it looks like "public access" television; "counter-intuitive" programming this Saturday with guests that include Bill Maher (his earlier, intuitive choices were pretty dull); and where have we heard the likes of this: "Mr Huckabee has a pleasant, even gentle manner, but some of his ideas are way off the mark."

Stanley suggests the election Tuesday could decide the future for the two new shows.
