Although the cause is a good one and the comics were sometimes funny, the vulgarities over-shadowed some of the humor. Whoopie was right when she said TBS would have a difficult time airing the language. Celebrities selling the shirts and the DVD became a bore. PBS is bad at soliciting for donations, but this episode of Comic Relief was a poor clone. The most touching segment was "Lassie" and her story; the scenes of New Orleans and the devastation still there are heart breaking. It's good to be reminded of what still needs to be done. Our government is lagging; the comics pointed that out several times; Bush was deservedly bashed. Did the comics talk to each other at all before the broadcast? There were similar jokes about Kirstie Alley, Dick Cheney, and others. Again, the cause is a good one, but the performances were generally lame this year. Whoopie couldn't get a word in edge-wise between Robin and Billy (no real surprise, however), and the TelePrompTer must have been on vacation. Sorry, folks - this was not the best version of Comic Relief.
