access extratainment tonight

this is a recurring skit that mocks entertainment news shows like access hollywood and entertainment tonight. craig ferguson plays 'barney slash', a real loser who doesnt understand anything and is barely able to make sense of the telepropter that he has to read. by his side is his little sidekick 'john tesh'. together they try to report on the 'dirt' about celebrities. usually it involves a simple concept that they arent really able to understand and try to 'get to the bottom of'. an example would be: 'celebrity weddings: why are celebrities getting married?' and then jumping to wild and silly assumptions. the editing and pace are kept ridiculously fast, another jab at this type of show.
i enjoy this bit, and its usually at least mildly amusing.
