Rosenberg says Hughley’s show is “CNN’s only acknowledged comedy,” and writes about the “faux” and “legit” interviews that make up the show. “Hughley is likable enough and may get funnier, but that isn’t really the point,” writes Rosenberg.

He calls Mike Huckabee’s program “un-Foxy” and notes the large number of guests “from the left” that appear on the show. “He wraps himself in the kind of earnestness that has helped make him a formidable political figure, turning the other cheek enough times to give you motion sickness,” he writes.
