Fashion Police returned with Melissa Rivers as its host, and the show shockingly stood on its own merit. Joined by Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski, with a special appearance from Margaret Cho and NeNe Leakes, the ladies covered the 2015 Video Music Awards, and left no stone unturned. As for whether Melissa Rivers lack of comedic prowess played a part in her hosting gig, the writers beautifully weaved in subtle jokes without being too try-hard. She can only survive as a straight man, so the off-color, bold jokes of the Joan Rivers’ era won’t work. Though Rancic is a throw-away staple, and Brad’s contribution remains to be seen, Cho and Leakes deserve a permanent spot on the panel. They serve as quick-witted counterparts to Melissa’s straight-man status, which is needed without Joan. Plus, NeNe is fearless, and she’s probably the only person who can hilariously scream about Miley’s “flat ass” and disguise it as a complement.
