Mediaite author Jon Bershad sat down with 'The B.S. of A.' host Brian Sack and showrunner Jack Helmuth just a few hours before the season finale of GBTV's new comedy show. What were some of their favorite sketches? And did you know it's a bad idea to pepper spray a freelance comedy actor in the face?

Bershad writes:

So, Season 1 is in the can. Lets start with the highlights. What were both of your favorite moments or segments from the season?

BRIAN: Certain sketches we’ve done resonated with people across the political spectrum and that’s wonderful because it means we don’t always have to be sanctimonious, bitter tw-ts to one another.The TSA opera, for one. And taking on the nanny state whether it’s buying cigarettesordering lunch, or driving the Chevy Bloomberg. I’m also partial to Shariah Law & Order. And Pumpernickel Boulevard which is our interpretation of Sesame Street.

We’ve also been soliciting “under-the-table” sponsors outside of the network’s actual sponsors. These are small businesses across the U.S. that send the show money to produce a commercial of questionable effectiveness that usually ends with someone getting killed. Ridiculous commercials. We’ve done quite a few and the response has always been great. With the money we made I bought the staff iPads and a very nice dinner. The remaining money factors in to the season finale in a big way.

JACK: To be honest, I’ve never seen the show, so I’m the wrong guy to ask.

A lot of shows, perhaps comedy shows in particular, require a bit of a learning curve in the beginning. What was something that surprised you or needed some course correction?

BRIAN: Like any show you’re starting off flailing around in the dark before getting your bearings. The great thing is that we’re this autonomous show on a fledgling network. We don’t have to answer to a room full of corporate suits. That’s not the culture here. We ultimately just have to amuse an excitable goateed man with an Armageddon complex whose weight fluctuates wildly. We can try one thing, decide it doesn’t work, and try another.

We had a live audience at first but that proved difficult logistically since we taped weekly at an inconvenient time for a no-name show on a network owned by someone New Yorkers burn in effigy. We had monologue jokes but started feeling like everyone has monologue jokes so we played around with that and ultimately dropped them. I was interviewing authors, but who doesn’t do that? So we changed it to a The Experts, where I discuss the news with people, living or dead, played by Upright Citizen’s Brigade performers. If you’ve ever wanted to hear Adolf HitlerMichele Obamaand a lesbian truck driver opine on breastfeeding in public, we’re your show.

JACK: Back in December we were going to do an experimental piece that dealt with the big pepper spray debate that was raging at the time. Police were using pepper spray quite liberally on protesters around the country and FOX News anchor Megyn Kelly essentially said that it was no big deal since pepper spray was made from vegetables. Matt Fisher, our writer and performer, came up with an idea where I would eat Newman’s Own spicy salsa and he would then actually get pepper sprayed in the face and we would see if Megyn Kelly was right. We debated and argued this internally for a full day and finally decided to do it. Matt, after all, came up with the idea and, for the sake of comedy and to make a point, wanted to get pepper sprayed in the face. So I, in my excitement to really do something different, allowed things, gave this the go-ahead, and we shot well over half the sketch until the very point where Matt was going to get sprayed. We were literally seconds away, with our PA standing in front of Matt, holding the spray up to his face, finger on the trigger. At that moment someone from the network intervened and we were told “no, you absolutely cannot pepper spray a freelance employee in the face.” And of course, they were right. That was a learning moment for me in a number of ways.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
