Surprise setups, prank phone calls and hidden cameras reign on Irish comedian-cum-talk-show-host Norton’s extravaganza. So it’s no wonder celebrity guests occasionally duck out of their commitment when they see what Norton is really all about. Shame on them! For our part, we can’t get enough of this unabashed prankster’s unique take on the talk show format. His joie de hosting, coupled with his inspired mix of conversational and musical guests, are as refreshing as a Guinness on a hot day. While we miss the "Cooldown" portion of the show, which was dropped this year for season three, we continue to delight in the uncut footage and cheeky bouts of audience interrogation that make Norton one of our favorite television imports.
