three-hour Last Comic Standing 2 finale begins tonight, concludes Thursday.
NBC’s Last Comic Standing 2 begins its conclusion tonight with a two-hour episode, and ends it with a one-hour episode on Thursday. Tonight at 8 p.m. ET, Gary, John and Alonzo will compete at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Actually, that won’t happen until about 9; first, NBC will fill time as “the 10 original housemate-comics reunite and recap their experiences on the show and the impact it has had on their lives,” and we’ll also see “clips of less successful auditions.” After the three finalists perform, viewers vote. Then on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET, Jay Mohr will crown the winner.
+ also: Kathleen Madigan, who was eliminated last week, says producers “wanted” conflict, but says, “I don’t like confrontation.”
+ and: the series “nostalgically recalls that time not so long ago when comedy was king.”
