I was a little disappointed by this. Anyone else?

The stupid bus conceit took up far too much time. The only good segments were the interviews. I understand that the bus driver plays a President on a TV show but that didn't add anything to my merriment. The Daily Show was far, far better. They actually did a great segment on Evangelicals voting for Trump which I could have watched for an hour.

Oh man, that police chief sure made it things gross really fast.

This felt like a part one episode, are there more specials coming ?

Don't think so.

Yeah. This feels like a two-part bit that would have been aired over the last two weeks, but got bumped to better stories, but as this one had an expiration date, so they aired it anyway.

Yup. Or that they couldn't quite get it to work, but they had to air something to justify the expense report to Janice in Accounting.

Still, I like that they're willing to take risks and try stuff!

Nah, Janice in Accounting don't give a fuck.

I totally thought that the bus driver was Andrew Lincoln, and now I have no idea who the bus driver was supposed to be.

These FanFare posts - they seem to be a few days before the air date published on IMDB?

I post them once the episode is up on their YouTube channel, which to me is Tuesday morning. Calendar TV also has them on Mondays (well, once again, Tuesday for me).

Likely the show was supposed to be on a different day of the week, and later was moved to Mondays and nobody bothered to fix that. Maybe.

The bus driver was Tony Goldwyn, the President on Scandal (and the introducer of the Mothers of the Movement at the DNC today).

And this episode was "Cleveland", #18, aired July 18th. #19 (no title on IMDB yet) aired on Monday (July 25th) and was mostly a regular Bee-in-studio one.
