E? Try F.

Todd Newton has a pretty easy job on E!'s Coming Attractions. All he has to do is look affable and read the inane script off the teleprompter. Any monkey could do it.

Wrong.

Cindy Taylor, the guest host-du-jour on the show, makes Todd Newton look like Laurence Olivier. Her qualifications were apparently that she's easy on the eyes, because the Wizard's got her brains on a shelf somewhere in Oz. I'm being a bit harsh-- she manages to get all the words out, pronounced correctly and in the right order. But it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that zing. The dialogue she's given is dopey enough as it is-- when read by someone for whom Dick and Jane is heavy material, it's painful to watch.

I can only hope the casting couch doesn't chafe.

Wow, you actually watch the filler between the previews? With Tivo remote in hand, I can usually make it through an episode in less than 10 minutes.
