Tv Season Info
Even though I've seen just one episode, I'm ready to deep-six another new Fox sitcom, Monty, a shrill and witless sendup of Rush Limbaugh. Henry Winkler is totally unbelievable and unfunny in the role of Monty, ultra-conservative host of a TV talk show.
There isn't one mildly funny line in the entire show, although the laugh-at-anything Fox audience would suggest otherwise.
This is essentially a contrived and scattered update of All in the Family with [Henry] Winkler as Archie and [China] Kantner as a more aggressive Meathead. But the conflict is there to keep the show rolling, if it can only discover a little cohesiveness.
[Henry] Winkler, looking vaguely cross-eyed and flapping his wings like a lost goose, seems at best pathetic, at worst pitiful.
If the premiere's moldiness is any indication, "Monty" could be the tamest series ever to debut on Fox.
