And given Jeri's ebullient nature, it's apparent that the monotone is acting.
Exactly. It's acting! If the performance was no different than what they present on a late night talk show (which can also be a type of acting as in pretending to be a regular person), then the criticisms might be justified. This is why I find out-takes useful for study, besides the obvious laughs. You can see whether an actor is submerging themself or playing close to the surface. There's usually a giveaway that they're inside the character, like an odd reaction in the eyes, or in the face, before they break or crack up.
