I heard he replaced the guy from the SOPRANO's. I think the guy dropped out after 2 wks of training b/c it was too hard on him (he's overweight or very out of shape?) and he had a bad knee and the dancing made it way worse. Voila, Cliff Claven takes his place and all I can say is WOW that man does have charisma and charm. He's very good!did anyone watch it? I noticed that John Ratzenberger was on there and I didn't remember him being in the original list so when they said he replaced someone 2 weeks ago I had to revisit this thread to see who it was.
Oh well, back to the show
