Creators, cast and network executives recount the strange history of the Dana Carvey Show, the irreverent prime time sketch comedy show that aired for eight episodes on ABC, following its star's meteoric run on Saturday Night Live.
Stephen Colbert called this special the hardest show he ever had to do. About two hours of material relating to Hillary Clinton's expected victory, including made-up commercials, were cut once it was cear that Clinton was most likely going to lose. Unable to go to commercial or use the made-up commercials, Colbert had to do the whole live show for an openly sobbing "audience of the condemned," as he said. See more »

But, this special did not get off the ground for me. Some of the bits seemed rehashed, some of the phrasings recycled and it seemed like at one or two points, he lost his way in the material and had to circle back around. There weren't the memorable bits that hit you like a comedy asteroid that each of his earlier specials delivered. I don't think the crowd felt the pull his stand up usually DEMANDS! This didn't have the weight or the force of his previous work. It was a disappointment. really bad
