TV shows and their online video policies are weird. Take Jimmy Kimmel Live, for instance. The ABC late-night chat show has its own YouTube channel and puts most of every episode online the next morning, but does so by splitting every segment up into multiple bits. I learned from another late-night show that this happens because the networks have rules (with SAG and AFTRA? with the WGA? or all three?) about how much of the show can be viewed at once online.
So we’re left with this, having to watch our favorite comedian on the panel in three separate videos, or in the case of Todd Glass last night, two separate videos. But in this case, it’s perfectly legitimate, as he does both stand-up and panel — except his time in the chairs is unlike anything you’ve seen in a long time.
In the first part, Glass jokes about not being able to follow directions if they’re north, south, east and west.
In the second part, Glass decides he needs to sit down like a normal panelist. Things get weirder from here. It’s like The Change-Up. In theaters today! Freaky Friday, indeed.
