I did end up watching the ceremony. It moved along quickly but it never engaged me.

Good opening, lame ending, spotty throughout. Neither the best nore the worst show.

Best opening for quite some time, I thought - Captain Kirk and the boob song shouldn't have worked but I loved them. But since - awfully uneven, bordering on dull.

I love Liam Neeson but a modern American superhero? Couple of things I don't get about that.

So far, a very uneven show...
