Tripp had more of an edge in the beginning, and I think he was much more interesting then. How is Ava's son suddenly so bland? But, then Ava and Rafe are as exciting as watching paint dry, too.
Again, don't care at all about Brady/Chloe/Phillip reboot 8.0.
I was happy to at least see Vic. Where the hell is Maggie?
I both understand and don't understand pairing Sharna and Brian. I like Brian but honestly I think Sharna could do better
And yup. They want those viral moments. When you think about it, a lot of shows seem driven by the desire to have 'viral moments'
My Mom loved DWTS. She watches The Voice now. Not even joking lol. I've never cared much for The Voice for whatever reason. It's interesting because I thought my Mom wouldn't like Tyra when she hosted America's Got Talent, but she did (Tyra was much better there IIRC) but yeah dumping Tom was a HUGE mistake.
I believe ABC saw "an old white guy" hosting and Tyra was an appealing replacement. It just hasn't worked.
Now NBC has got him. NBC always picks up Fox and ABC personality's that are discarded. LOL
As much as I like Heather Thom, I don't see a reason for Katie to be on the canvas full-time. There's really nothing for her to do, and I think the writers just keep putting her with Bill because they don't know what else to do. But, Bill has always been more interesting without Katie. Also, I don't see the need for Shauna and Flo, either. The money in the budget for these characters could be used to bring in some fresh new characters. I often thought that Felicia would be a good match for Bill.
They have nothing to replace it with LOL. They could get even worse results ... but yeah The Talk feels dead to me. It has for a while. They tried salvaging it with male co-hosts. The idea wasn't bad but the audience just isn't there.
I know people appreciated the anti-View aspect of The Talk but fluff and constantly losing co-hosts doesn't get you viewers. I thought it was a stupid idea way back when it replaced ATWT. And it's gotten further from it's original idea.
