@midnight Power Rankings (Sept 19-22)

Donald Trump, with Illuminati By Marriage Chris Hardwick

I gotta say, I went into this Donald Trump themed week of @midnight with a fair amount of trepidation. Anthony Atamanuik has one of the best Trumps in the biz, especially in a longer-form setting, but it's the kind of thing that'd get real old, real fast. But Atamanuik knocked it out of the fucking park over and over again, and he was used judiciously enough that even over four days, each appearance was a treat.

The arbitrary, meaningless regular performer rankings are topped by Rich Fulcher and Artemis Pebdani, who brought the fire.

  1. "Donald Trump"
  2. Rich Fulcher (Th) 
  3. Artemis Pebdani (W)
  4. Paul F. Tompkins (T)
  5. Janet Varney (T)
  6. Doug Benson (M)
  7. Johnny Pemberton (W)
  8. Mae Whitman (Th) 
  9. Cheryl Hines (W)
  10. Aja Cash (T)
  11. Natasha Lyonne (M)
  12. Katie Sackhoff (M)
  13. Derek Waters (Th)

Watch 'em all. Even with two "cast of" episodes (Son of Zorn, Drunk HIstory) and two non-comedian actors on Monday's show, even without the Trump stuff, none of them drop below the @midnight average funny level.

  1. Thursday
  2. Tuesday
  3. Wednesday
  4. Monday
