The Break with Michelle Wolf and Norm Macdonald Has a Show only have the Netflix connection in common. Otherwise, they're not connected at all. Yet Macdonald's "sh*tty show" feels like a taunt coming so soon after Wolf's cancelation, says Kevin Fallon. "Norm Macdonald has a show and Michelle Wolf does not. That’s aggravating," he says. "It’s aggravating because of what Wolf’s show and her material contributed to the national discourse, and the utter pointlessness of what’s happening on Macdonald’s series. And it’s aggravating that this is the show we’re given in the wake of Macdonald’s controversial comments (last) week. All that... for this?" Fallon says Wolf's The Break "was a sharply written, carefully planned, high-production gem, a valuable and critically valued descendant of The Daily Show with a necessary point of view. (A woman’s!)" Meanwhile, Fallon adds, "Norm Macdonald Has a Show doesn’t even approach anything arguably valuable. In the first episode, David Spade gamely tells stories from the start of his career, but Macdonald barely seems to be paying attention. Everyone is maniacally laughing through the whole thing, but you can’t shake the notion that you just walked in on your uncles having beers in the garage cracking themselves up, but you’re just not in on the joke."
