Yeah. I appreciate who Alan gets, but he really isn't an interviewer. It's frustrating and why I really don't watch anymore. I think these get togethers were meant to be 'hangouts' not 'interviews'. But he needs to read the room.
You also have to remember he was loooong in PR and still acts like that. Not sure why but he seems to still be trying to play the middle and not cause any waves with 'tough' questions. I get it, but it's frustrating. Especially when he has guests who are willing to talk. Like Goutman, who seemed to want to get more into things.
I don't like Goutman but I still ultimately appreciate hearing from him, just like Phelps, and others.
I'm not shocked at all CBS and P&G wanted the soaps dead. They no longer served a purpose for P&G/Telenext. That was clear for years and years before they went off the air. We all knew they had no interest. I guess CBS never really wanted to 'buy' GL and ATWT if they wanted them dead so badly? I'd like more info here ...
And just featuring 'young people' doesn't generate a better demo. Sorry Goutman.
And who called Lisa unimportant? Goutman?
