Strangely enough, I understand the appeal behind The Tablecloth Hour. It focuses on obsessive-compulsive behavior, something that many of us exhibit to a certain degree. By presenting a rather difficult yet simple task, our need to succeed drives us to an obsessive level.
Nevertheless, The Tablecloth Hour is as much ludicrous as it is hilarious. It even comes with a tablecloth controller. Just beware of waiter hustlers.
