    I knew it. It was going one of two ways,either he goes all family guy cutting edge tearing them a new one and making it lively, OR….he goes all I love Sinatra watch me sing people, dreaded that, so will be passing on watching them now. It’s strictly a highlight reel for me now. He will be as schmaltzy as billy crystal and his old timey schtick. Pass.
