From the Media Approval Ratings Comments….by a poster named “UK Basketball is More Fun than Law School”:
I’ve been waiting and hoping that this would show up. Chris Cross is easily the least knowledgeable broadcaster that I have ever had the displeasure of listening to. Magic Johnson’s talk show would have experienced Grey’s Anatomy level success had it been up against the like’s of Chris Cross. I no longer live in Lexington, and I can say, unequivocally, that the single best thing about no longer living there isn’t the traffic or the inane debates over water, but rather the fact that I don’t have to endure the 3 hour infomercial that is Chris Cross’s talk show.
One needs only listen to Chris Cross’s commercial for the newly-minted “Firehouse Subs” to understand just how uncharismatic he truly is. In that commercial, by my count, he uses the word “great” as an adjective for the product no fewer than 8 times. It’s a 30 second commercial. (He also utilizes the phrase “son of a gun” no fewer than 3 times). When it first opened, I truly loved eating lunch there. Then he did a commercial for Firehouse Subs. This tempered my enthusiasm, but I continued to eat there. Then, one day, I walked in for a delicious “Hook and Ladder” combo, and that rat bastard was broadcasting his show live from the restaurant (with an adoring audience of 3 people, seated as far away from the table Chris Cross was sitting at as humanly possible). I swore that day that I would never set foot in that place again—and I haven’t. I moved shortly thereafter.
Here’s a list of 10 things I would rather experience than Chris Cross’s show:
3. Magic Johnson’s Talk Show
4. Magic Johnson’s Johnson
5. Caroline in the City
6. Sunday Brunch with Joan Rivers
7. Any Eddie Murphy Movie Made After 1995
8. Performing a Colonoscopy on Ed Asner
9. Shaving Rosanne Barr Wherever She Tells Me To
10. Bird Flu
In sum…I don’t enjoy his program. I’ll be voting “no.”
