May 21: It's Cranky Miller Time

Comic and political commentator Dennis Miller has a reputation for being cantankerous and on this week’s show, he lives up to that image to the fullest. More than three years after he came on this show and complimented us as erudite and astute, he’s back in a tense conversation that he ends abruptly because it was, uh, “too deep.”

In Banter: No news on Danny Gans yet, Lion King gets high marks, British Airways opens daily nonstops, the pasties are gone from and Holly Madison is coming to Peepshow and Menopause finds a new home at the recently hipped-up Luxor.

Thanks to Amy of GritsToGlitz.Com for subbing for Steve.

I am not a Dennis Miller fan, but I didn't think the interview went that bad. A little abrupt at the end, but besides that it seems friendly enough.
