MAYBE I'M GOING out on a limb here, but I'm pretty sure the people behind "The Nick & Jessica Variety Hour" knew they were doing a parody of '70s variety shows.

I thought they did a pretty good job, but reasonable people may differ (you have to be of a certain age to understand). So, while I'll grant Salon's Heather Havrilesky the right to her opinion, when I read her I Like to Watch column I have to wonder whether she even began to get the joke.

Perhaps it was the off-topic inclusion of Jewel and Babyface that muddled the message.
