Trivia

Several segments were not aired due to controversial subject matter: - A segment about Fred Phelps and his anti-gay group "God Hates Fags" who protest the funerals of homosexuals. Moore confronts the group in a pink RV filled with gay men. The segment was released on the videotape compilation TV Nation: Volume Two (1997). Moore later confronted Phelps with the RV again in his show The Awful Truth (1999). - An interview with Christian abortion abolitionist C. Roy McMillan who declared that deadly force against abortionists, the Supreme Court and President Bill Clinton would be justified. NBC claimed they only pulled the segment because the airdate was during the holiday season (December 28) and promised to air the segment at a later date. But NBC later cancelled the show and the segment never aired. The US Secret Service investigated the tape of the interview. - A segment about small-size condoms was pulled because NBC feared it would "lose affiliates in the South" due to the repeated use of the word "condom". When the show moved to Fox, the network agreed to air it but later changed their minds. The segment was released on the videotape compilation TV Nation: Volume One (1997). See more »

Very smart
10 July 2000 | by Quinoa1984See all my reviews

This is a news/magazine shoe- there is no doubt of that. But instead of other shows like Dateline and 20/20, this show focuses on finding people and trying to find out why they did this or that. And who better to lead the pack than the king of the downsized worker and down on there luck person- Michael Moore. He brings to the small screen a lot of funny and smart stuff that was also seen on the big one in Roger and me. The only difference being that this time It's on weekly (not anymore actually, It's been replaced by The Awful Truth, which isn't the worst). Very smart and funny, and of course the show draws sympathy. A+
