But is TSLwhat they're looking for here?  I'm guessing they're aiming for
cume instead, with fast-paced highlights as opposed to long comedy routines.

I'm not sure that 50 year old comedy bits is the best way to attract a
demographically desirable audience today.  So much of comedy's appeal is in
being contemporary....someone telling Nixon jokes isn't gonna cut it with
someone who wasn't even born when he resigned.
