Am I the only one that loved the old Comic Reliefs?

I have been hoping for a while that they would do it again....

Uhhhh....why is it going to be on TBS. The censorship is going to kill the acts of Sarah Silverman, Louis CK, & Lewis Black.

Edit: I loved the original. I even donated enough to get a sweatshirt.

My guess is that we are going to see two different versions of it...

This one was for Katrina victims; good thing it went out to a basic cable channel, too. Did they bleep out all the profanity?

Sidenote, Robin Williams' schtick is way old, even Billy Crystal looked at him like "WTF are you talking about?". Kinda cool to see the same ol' host though.

They didn't bleep "that" much on TBS

I checked a couple segments, and they where not bleeped.
But others where.

If you missed it, they are replaying it a few times...

And it is a LOT better in HD (widescreen), then in SD 4:3

For the most part, CR2006 was just a bunch of sophmoric foul-mouthed morons
whose so-called comedy would have totally bombed without the continuous and
monotonous shtick of vulgar language. Call me old-fashioned, but I was the one
who needed relief from this so-called comedy. I'm not a prude, but after 30 min. I
had had my fill of 'F-bombs' and snickering schoolyard references to body parts
(tee-hee), I stopped watching and deleted the HD DVR recording I had made.

The whole show was just so much repititious crap -- a waste of bandwidth and most
unworthy of such an otherwise worthy cause. It was an embarrassment for America
and decent Americans.
