Big Guns for Shatner

Bad jokes, bad hair, bad vibes - all in a day's work.Comedy Central's roast of the Shat was all you'd expect if you're a fan, and was probably even easy to take if you hate him. The sponsors lined up for this thing were huge, and at an hour and three quarters in length, there was plenty of time to stuff in a bunch of ads. In true Comedy Central style, they repeated the show immediately after it ended, calling it an "encore" performance. Don't you need audience reaction for an encore?

Expect this thing to get replayed to death. Best line: Shatner in the opening sequence, likely referring to Farrah Fawcett, "Some train wreck in a dress who used to be hot."

No one mentioned that Shat was the spokesman for Promise margarine many light years ago, though they did rip the hell out of Priceline.
