Marty Martin (pictured left) is this week’s casualty on “On the Lot.” After last week’s surge of attitude from Martin, we could have seen that coming as easily as the hackneyed plots of one of his shorts. A more surprising development this week is the crowd turning on judge Carrie Fisher – who had the memorable “you’re a big fan of yourself” exchange with Mr. Martin last week.

As few times in this week’s episode, Fisher’s criticisms of the contestants drew catcalls and boos from the crowd behind her. Fisher took it in stride, as you might expect from a thick-skinned showbiz vet.
