    USA Network’s weekly half-hour unscripted competition series First Impressions, featuring SNL alum Dana Carvey, has signed Freddie Prinze Jr. to host.

    Carvey is “expert-in-residence” on the series that pits America’s best amateur impressionists against one another in a battle of celebrity impressions. Each week the studio audience crowns a winner. Along with Carvey and Prinze, contestants will be coached through a variety of challenges by the likes of Steve Carell, Jay Leno, Kevin Nealon, Yvette Nicole Brown, Tom Arnold, Jon Lovitz and Kate Flannery.

    The series is set to premiere on Tuesday, May 10, at 10:30 PM. It’s from Renegade 83 and Gaspin Media. Carvey, Jeff Gaspin, David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe will executive produce.

    He's a comedian? I've always liked the guy but only know him from a few movies he did. Hid dad was a pretty funny stand-up.

    I'll watch the first episode.

    Prinze's career fell off hard after he married Gellar.

    The only good thing Freddie Prinz Jr has ever done is Sarah Michele Gellar.

    I always thought Craig Gass was pretty funny. I remember him being in the Jackie chair a couple of times before Artie got it full-time.

    His Gene Simmons impression always cracked me up...

    So will Wiggy go berserk that they "stole" them from him or try to take credit for the show? He hates when people move on from the show and try to make actual money.

    Will he be doing his stereotypical Hispanic impression of Chico?
    Will he bring out his wife, the jew broad who kills draculas?

    I used to do a mean version of Jeremy Irons as Simon Gruber from Die Hard With A Vengence. Don't know what happened. :dontknow:
