Did Chris Rock really suck it up?

I know some people were tuning into the Oscars for the sole reason of watching Rock. I didn't think he was terrible, not great but not bad. The USA Today seems to think he was a horrible choice:

Loud, snide and dismissive, he wasn't just a disappointment; he ranks up there with the worst hosts ever — particularly when you factor in the expectations. When the show ran a salute to Johnny Carson's years as host, the comparison was so painful, it made you think the academy would have been better off just letting a computer-generated Carson host again.

I think they are going a bit far.


And at the party I was at, it was a consensus that it was the best opening monologue in years.

I agree with Stephanie. I thought the opening monologue was pretty funny. I liked him as host. Bianco's review was rather brutal, which is a shame because I think Bianco's a good TV critic.
