    I usually like watching one performer reflect on his work, but the show’s been reaching in that regard for a long time. (As funny as it was…Conan O’Brien? Really?!)

    This should be pretty interesting, especially because I really enjoyed the one with the cast of “The Simpsons.”

  • Vic Nardozza

    I still can’t believe so many people watch Two And A Half Men. They put the “eck” in dreck.

  • whatevs

    I like when a full cast goes on that show, so I’ll definitely be looking forward to it. I do wish they had waited a while so the cast can have a retrospect like the cast of Everyone Loves Raymond did.

    I don’t care for MF, but the cast is mostly good so I’ll tune in. Ty was excellent in Out of Practices – a show that should have remained on for 6-7 seasons.
    Thank goodness none of the obnoxious child actors will be on this show.

    • Justin

      The child actors on this show are priceless, not obnoxious.

      • lefty

        Manny is obnoxious.

      • Justin

        Manny is hilarious.

  • Anna

    Hey now! I happen to adore Manny. As for the cast’s appearance, I’m excited to see how they do in this format.

    They really should have the kids on too.

    • Joe

      no they shouldn’t. the kids are cute and funny, but Inside the Actors Studio is a place for accomplished actors. The kids are too young.

      • @ Joe

        “Inside the Actors Studio is a place for accomplished actors”…such as, Martin Lawrence?

      • Norvear

        such as Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz

    I’m with Mr. Holloway. I think James Lipton has run out of potential interviewees. I love Modern Family but I wouldn’t call the cast worthy of being on the same stage where Meryl Streep, Al Pacino, Tom Hanks, etc talked about acting. I think Inside the Actor’s Studio jumped the shark when they had Will Ferrell on.

    • Em

      So they keep having those 3 people come on every time?

  • Vivi

    I will be definitely watching!

  • bmospr04

    ITAS doesn’t have the same prestige as it once did but i’ll prob. catch it on DVR
