| Pretty bad, but has some interesting moments
It's not surprising that I'm the first person to review this show. Largely forgotten, and barely even noted in Joe Namath's Wikipedia entry, it ran only 13 episodes before being mercifully canceled. Although the show had some impressive guests from the world of sports and entertainment, Namath was not at all comfortable as the host. He was so insecure and visibly self-conscious that even guests like Woody Allen, Truman Capote, Muhammad Ali, Jimmy Breslin and Howard Cosell couldn't save this turkey. Some of the interviews are actually somewhat interesting and amusing, but there are far too few really good moments.

Currently being rerun on ESPN's Classic Sports Network, this cult classic is sort of like a car accident: you want to look away, but you can't keep from looking just to see how bad it really is.

One curiosity: Louisa Moritz, who played the ditsy "mail girl" in 10 of the 13 episodes, was actually a very bright, well educated woman who went on to make money in Beverly Hills real estate and is now a practicing, award-winning attorney in southern California.
