I got the nearly email - do they normally let you know what nearly made it if you ask politely?

Well done everyone who got on! I thought last week's episode was great but [miserable mode on] last night's was just abysmal... can't say I'm a fan of any of the NJ monologues but even with an audience full of people cackling and howling at nothing (literally in some cases) I thought most of the one-liners and sketches were sooo poor. "Johnson out" the biggest laugh, really? Even with that OTT audience some of those barely got a titter, makes you wonder what they cut! [miserable mode off]

On balance, also preferred last week's show -thought oneliners much better in ep 2, but I did enjoy the recycling sketch
