It wasn't a judgement call on them. If they say they're living together and happy with each other, props to them.Originally Posted by MiniDiva;3685429;
It is, however, supremely annoying to be treated like an idiot by the network. Like "Woo boy, I have a great idea!! Let's just call Jilly Bean at 6am in Chicago and see if maybe she'll be able to fill in later this week. Oh, she can? Cool! Who could have guessed?!"
It's clear the regular anchor didn't just decide to randomly leave this week and now Riaz is scrambling for a co-host. Come on. This was agreed upon weeks, if not a month ago, Jillian probably had to sign some papers, etc.. Then this morning she knew the call was coming, the producers called first, probably filled Ed and her in on what to say- aww, cute, he could be grouchy- and then Riaz and the other anchor called on-air.
Honestly, do they think their audience is made up of complete morons?
