    [nothingburger]/[nothing-burger]/[nothing burger]

    這是一個俚語, Urban Dictionary 裡的解釋:

    [nothingburger]:

    something lame, dead-end, a dud, insignificant; especially something with high expectations that turns out to be average, pathetic, or overhyped.

    "Much to the team's dismay, the number one pick in this year's draft turned out to be a nothingburger."

    大家都知道[hamburger], 雖然漢堡不見得都夾火腿(ham), 但是總會有一些料. 如果什麼夾料都沒有(nothing), 豈不是太令人失望, 覺得乏善可陳, 索然無味呢? 這就是[nothingburger]用來形容的意思.

    Yesterday, just moments after President Bush finished his address to the U.N. General Assembly, Bill Kristol called the speech a “nothingburger.”

    所以,

    The debate became a bit of nothing-burger.

    這場辯論顯得有些令人失望, 乏善可陳.

    這場辯論顯得有些"雷聲大, 雨點小."

    這場辯論的內容有點不如預期.

    這場辯論的內容與各界的期望有些落差.

    Very good explanation. Kevin.

    I believe that it also has the meaning of (1) nothing new, the same old story, 陳舊, 老套 (2) insignificant. 不重要
