“Lily Allen And Friends” Still Not Forming Many Bonds With Viewers

Feb 20th, 2008 // 5 Comments


In case you were wondering just how much of a disaster Lily Allen’s ratings nightmare of a TV chat show is, someone’s gone and put the most recent episode on YouTube. Part one is above; Lily is in totally wooden mode when she’s forced to read the teleprompter, which only serves to make her flirting with Martin Freeman even more awkward. Plus: there’s footage animals doing it with Perez Hilton-style scrawl over them, Chris Crocker takes the “Internet celebrity” role that Tay Zonday had in episode one, and there’s found YouTubage of some woman who can “make her butt clap.” Poor Martin, looking absolutely mortified while trying to explain to Lily the Web 1.0 definition of “friend.” I want to give him a cookie.

    call me loco, but i actually find it kind of fun. mainly due to the fact that they can say naughty words, and lily is absolutely adorable.

    Yeah, I fail to see a trainwreck here. It may not be 5 star programming, but it’s pretty amusing.

    And have you seen The Office? Martin wasn’t actually mortified. That whole “awkward confrontationalism” is kinda the whole shtick.

    Well, so much for the damn Brits telling us that US programming is right crap.

    @christopher tracy & @KurticusMaximus:

    Agreed. I think it’s adorable and kind of a neat premise.

    Plus, I absolutely adore Lily Allen.

  5. WOW! You must have worked really hard on this Chumby site, I really really like it, in fact it’s ace!
