I certainly agree that Mull's Fernwood tonight was some of the best humor 
ever seen on TV. My favorite bit was the guy who came on to supposedly "discuss" 
song writing schools but then immediately launched into a sleazy pitch for his 
own song writing school. He started by looking up as he said, "Suppose you 
walk out of your home, look up say, don't know why there's no sun up in the sky, 
stormy weather." He then made eye contact and went into, "Yes, it's just that 
easy folks." Later during the bit they cut to a recording studio where two 
musicians were sitting looking very glum as one said; "This song could be a 
major hit if only we had some words." Incredibly funny stuff.
