Still have no idea why they let JVD go..Ross and Blake could have been the best "talk tos" the show has had in years, and with Dinah in their orbit would have quite a lot of things to respond to. I know most people don't like LK's Blake as opposed to SS..but I still think she was a grown up version of Blake who was raised basically by Ed and Bert in her formative years so can see the warmth coming out.
Exactly. I think this has a lot to do with it. This time last year, a lot of people were still out of work and possibly still quarantined (lucky them, huh), so watching television was easier. I don't see many people DVRing a talk show at this point, when they can get highlights on YouTube.
