The Shatner Roast

The Good: A few excellent lines, especially Greg Giraldo saying that Shatner "is involved with a foundation to bring peace to the Middle East. So whatever you're doing, Bill, keep it up." Also, unlike the Chevy Chase roast, they seemed to actually get some people who know Shatner and have worked with him.

The Bad: Why was comedian Lisa Lampanelli the butt of approximately one-third of the jokes, when I and most people watching had never heard of her before? Though I did like the line that she has "screwed more black men than the Tuskegee experiments."

The Ugly: Andy Dick and Farrah Fawcett both disintegrating before our very eyes. They would both be excellent Dead Pool picks for '07.

She was on a Daniel Carver roast on Howard Stern and was the target of a lot of it too.
