Fox attempts to be wacky with Banzai, a show full of short “can you guess the outcome” challenges presented as if it were a Japanese game show. The individual challenges can actually be semi-interesting: how many balloons will it take to lift a chicken into the air? But the relentless mock-Japanese aspect gets wearisome and mixed in with the challenges that get your attention (how long will Kelsey Grammer let an interviewer keep shaking his hand?) are ones that seem like poorly-staged Jackass stunts (two guys in shopping carts, jousting).
Comedy Central use to have a show called Short Attention Span Theater, where they would take brief bits from shows that were on the network roster. Some of the Banzai challenges could have added a bit of spice to that soup, but a half hour of that spice is too much of a not-that-good thing.
