Tom Lehrer is Smug

this may be one of the funniest television jokes ever.

(The set-up: Guy Caballero, president and general manager of SCTV, is ruminating over his past affair with chanteuse Lola Heatherton.)

GUY CABALLERO: I'm sorry, Lola. I had to cancel our love. It was doing badly in the overnights.

Volume 1 of the SCTV DVD set is absosmashly full of some of the most brilliant comedy I've seen in a long, long, long time.
