    Hmmmmm, I heard Bill saying he believed in the second amendment. And I too, thought that Sherri had that 'deer in the headlights' look.

    I've seen several blind items recently hinting that Jenny is going to be fired. Apparently, TPTB thought they were hiring someone who would be smart and opinionated. Instead, she's just loud and ignorant AND the audience hates her. I don't watch the show too often, but I have to say I agree with that assessment.

    I'd be very happy if those rumors turned out to be true. When they hired Jenny, it seemed not well thought out to me. There were several other people who appeared to be "auditioning" for the show who had been on many more times than Jenny. It seemed like she had been a guest more times than she had a guest host before they hired her. She certainly does not come across as smart and opinionated. Most of the time when she talks, it feels like she's just repeating little snippets that were fed to her by producers. Even getting away from current events, most of the things she shares about her life don't seem to really bring a connection with the audience like I think she's hoping for. Her engagement announcement was nice because it was a total surprise for the women on the panel. But since her entire relationship for Donny has seemed too public and show-offy, I don't think there's a lot of excitement to go through the wedding process with her ... much less even than there was for Star or Sherri. I think that's the problem with Jenny overall - when she shares, it feels like she's trying to show off instead of relate to people.

    I wonder a lot lately about casting in many tv positions. Do TPTB really think anything through? Odd choices by The View, American Idol, Bravo, etc. It seems like it's more who you know that what you know.

    Re: The View

    I think TPTB think everything through, and in some cases, overthink it. But there are A LOT more avenues for people to let their views of casting decisions be known now than there used to be. Pre-social media, you watched a talk show if you liked the people on it, and changed the channel if you didn't. Eventually that would show in the ratings, and adjustments would be made if needed. Now, TV people get ratings information faster, so if people stop watching, or start watching, they know sooner. They also have twitter, facebook, and even sites like this where people will voice exactly why they do or do not watch a show. In those voiced opinions, other opinions are formed. For example, I may watch The View and not have a thought one way or the other on a guest host. Then I come here and see comments from multiple people talking about annoying habits that guest host has. As I watch the person more, I notice the annoying habits that I had never noticed before they were mentioned, but now start to be fixated on them. Suddenly, I dislike that guest host that I used to be indifferent to. On top of that, you've got an entire group of people who will declare on social media that shows are horrible and unwatchable, and continue to comment on everything they see on the unwatchable shows each week. That has to leave anyone observing comments for feedback unsure of whether "unwatchable" is good news or bad news. It has to be tough to navigate casting decisions in that environment.

    New Edition tore it up on the show today!!! They have aged most gracefully! They actually reminded me of The Temptations. Whomever is choreographing them is really earning his money! Very refreshing! Not a bunch of background dancers....just the guys! Bobby Brown has lost his big belly. Bobby still can't sing, though!
