I’m not a fan of reality TV so I’m not 100% sure how “My Life on the D-List” stacks up against others of its ilk, but as a casual viewer it’s surprisingly entertaining and often poignant. Kathy Griffin’s brand of comedy is certainly not for everyone, but even non-fans can find plenty to enjoy here, as Griffin’s inner circle (including, at various times, her husband, her parents, assistants and colleagues, among others) is filled with interesting, funny people, and that camaraderie makes all six seasons of this Bravo show entertaining. The first three seasons are the strongest, with Griffin’s heavy workload bringing the show to various different events and cities, and while the show starts to run out of steam by the last few seasons, it’s still a lot of fun to watch. Some of the show’s highlights include Griffin performing for American troops in Iraq, auctioning off a weekend at her house to raise money for charity, and Griffin’s various hosting duties on the Grammy and Academy Award red carpet shows.
