Ugh. They obviously didn't hire him for any interviewing skills.

Just because people like to smoke doesn't make it good for them. In the same mode, just because he has managed to make himself BFF's with all the actors doesn't mean he's a good presenter.

I agree- not a fan based on what I've seen because he doesn't provide any critical commentary whatsoever but I'll probably check it out for the interview with Jeff K. Do all the other soap journalists hate him? There is some serious showing out on twitter from DC's Jamey with others joining in.

Why aren't they just doing this on the More episodes.  I don't see the point.  It's just like More More. 

 

I like Michael fine.  But he's not exactly known to ask the tough questions.  Really nice guy though and I hope this works out.  Who know.  It could be just a good five minute interview.  I guess More is better.  I'd just rather have more show.

Every week I try to tell myself she's improving. but I think I lie to myself. I do think MORE benefited from combining for both shows though. It feels less aimless.

They should either cancel LESS or nix this show. Why the heck are they wasting budget on this pointless crap when they could be adding 3 minutes more of each show?

I'm aware of that John.  Not sure what your point is.  And I don't think the host of More is all that bad.  She reminds me of Mary Hart.

I guess I'm alone.  I think she's fine and I've enjoyed the more episodes.  Minus the fan interaction.

Having it at 10 PM ET is so late. If the actors are LA based not so bad, but that's ridiculous for the east coast performers.

No she's competent. I'd just prefer someone who seems like she knows the characters because she watched the shows and is genuinely excited to talk about them. Then again, I'm with you on the fan interaction.

 

Hopefully launching this blogtalk thing means that PP is not sweating the union dispute too much and is moving along with their plans.

I wouldn't be surprised if Michael negotiated some kind of stipend.  Maybe.  Maybe not.

I get what you're saying but honestly I feel like that's part of how we got here. You don't have to be a fan in order to do a decent job hosting a bit of fluff like these shows are and the idea that you have to be personally invested creates a bit of a circle jerk effect.

Not that I care all that much. I don't even watch the MORE eps and I'm not going to tune into this.
