“Todd uses a team of comedy writers for his show, and has been using them to write dialogue for several seasons,” a source close to production told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
“Todd does not come up with this stuff on his own, and is not as funny as people think.”
“More than half of the dialogue on the show is scripted and a large majority of the scenes are reshot when they are not as funny as he wants them to be,” the insider added.
As Radar previously reported, the 48-year-old father of four recently had to re-write his talk show after USA network declined to pick up the lackluster content.
“They filmed a bunch of episodes, but the final product was so bad that the USA network did not want to pick it up,” a source said.
“So, Todd hired a team of comedy writers in Los Angeles to help save the show. They are currently in the proess of redoing it, and Todd refuses to let it go. He is trying so hard to make this happen.”
