The best talk show on the Internet might be the perennially awkward "Between Two Ferns." Why can't they just replace Jay Leno with Zach Galifianakis? I keep writing NBC, but no one will give me a straight answer.
That being said, the latest "Ferns" episode with Will Ferrell just doesn't do it for me the way some of the earlier episodes do. Sure, there's a quick visit from Jon Hamm, a former "BTF" guest, and a wonderful fruit-eating sequence, but it may be that what made these shows so funny in the first place -- mainly Zach's sweaty awkwardness and mean-spirited jealousy toward his guests -- is a little less believable now that he's a legitimate movie star himself.

To compare, here are some of Between Two Ferns' greatest hits, include Ben Stiller:
My absolute favorite, Charlize Theron:
And the one that started it all, Michael Cera:
Zach, stop being so famous so you can go back to being more funny!
