Reportedly, Dennis Miller's show will expire tomorrow. Which may explain his rebranding efforts a couple weeks ago on The Daily Show (as well as Jon's tender treatment of him).
Enough said about Miller, but I never understood why he saddled himself with doing Dennis Miller schtick in the first place. Hell, if Howie Mandell can work without props without notably increasing his cringe-inducing factor, surely Dennis can get a new act.
(Now that I think on it, maybe it was metaphysically impossible for Howie Mandell to become any more of an embarrassment. He was on Comedy Central last week, and I tuned in just to see how much I could take. Twenty-three seconds.)
Dennis Miller's sin was not in siding with the wingnuts (or "being a libertarian", which he seems to think is something distinct). It was in announcing he was giving George Bush a free pass. That wasn't an insult to the audience. It was an insult to Dame Comedy herself.
