  1. @KC, I understand your point about the Nerdist, but then it goes back to chat show vs. sketch show format. The only way LHR could address Zach would be to do a "meta" sketch about him, which, if this were a real situation where a guest canceled (let's assume for a legitimate, serious reason) would be unnecessary and possibly hurtful. They would go on with their sketch show as usual. . I don't agree that complaining about (or even mentioning) a canceled guest on a podcast is necessarily professional. For a live show, absolutely, especially if the guest had been promoted, but on a podcast I think it would be more professional to quietly move on and try to reschedule. Not to fault TLDDC, who were riffing on being pranked, not on a cancellation. I doubt that if a real guest canceled they would have done that at all. . Again, EC is a really compelling podcast, but they need to make sure everyone is on the same page with judging criteria.

  3. So, if I follow the judges' logic: if the Superego folks had scheduled Patton Oswalt to come in and record, and he canceled at the last minute, then Superego should make a sketch somehow incorporating the fact of Patton's not being there? How does that make any sense? As mentioned above, it's not clear if the contestants were meant to react as if the guest had really canceled, or if they were meant to act as if they had been pranked. I don't think the judges were clear on that either. Very frustrating episode.
