''Primetime Glick'' was a comedy series that aired on Creator/ComedyCentral from 2001 to 2003. It starred Martin Short (in a fat suit and convincing facial make-up) as clueless interviewer Jiminy Glick, who would fawn over celebrities, despite knowing next to nothing about them (and frequently getting facts about them wrong). He also had a penchant for unknowingly insulting whoever he talked to. Jiminy was joined by his bandleader, Adrian Van Voorhees ([=Michael McKean=]), who was often the blunt of his abuse. An elderly, cranky woman named Miss Gathercole (also played by Short) appeared in the studio audience of every show and often shouted complaints at Glick.

'''Jiminy''': You're telling me I didn't ask you nice questions?\\
'''John''': They were out.\\
'''Jiminy''': They were perfectly on the line! You have GOT to be kidding me!\\
'''John''': C'mere and ''kiss my ass''!\\
'''Jiminy''': I don't want to kiss your ass unless there's money involved!\\
'''John''': Give me a break.\\
'''Jiminy''': Give ''me'' a break! ''(pointing at him)'' You stop it, and you hear me out. You hear me when I speak to you. You stink!\\
'''John''': I'm outta here. ''(gets up)''\\
'''Jiminy''': Oh, you're outta here? How about you were outta here before you sat down!\\
'''John''': Thanks, man.\\
'''Jiminy''': "Man", oh suddenly we're in a beatnik movie.

* HealingHands: In the interview with Creator/StevenSpielberg, Jiminy was winded from getting candy while Steven was talking. While breathing heavily, Steven put his index finger on Jiminy's cheek, and a bemused Jiminy asked: "What are ya gonna do with that?" Steven replied, "I'm gonna do ''[[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial E.T.]]''. ''(scratchy voice)'' I'll be right here. ''(finger glows as he touches Jiminy's face)''
--> '''Jiminy''': ''(instantly happy)'' Ohhh... thank you, Steven! Steven Spielberg: The man, of magic.

* NotListeningToMeAreYou: Played with in the Creator/StevenSpielberg interview. Jiminy asks Steven what his secret to success is, and Steven gives a long answer about how he's been influenced by the great directors and movies of the past. Jiminy is bored within seconds of asking the question and after slouching in his chair, he goes to a nearby table and stuffs snacks in his mouth, then crawls back into his chair while looking winded. All while Steven is talking.
