I'll be glad when Rosie gets there; maybe hot topics will pick up. I don't think the crew that is currently on the panel have the ability to make it interesting. It was a sad day today.
It really was dull today.
I'm not taking anything away from Barbara and all that she has achieved in her career, but I really think she's long past her prime.
She just doesn't have the skill that Meredith had in keeping those Hot Topics subjects flowing.
The segment just lurches along and it seems as though everyday they end up devoting some time to laughing at a slip up Barabara has made.
Today she said "Tex Mex" instead of "text messaging".
They then laugh about how out of touch she is (ignoring the fact that that's kind of the problem) then any impetus the segment had gets lost and they have to build from scratch again.
Timing is everything, be it in delivering a punch line, or in realizing that your time has come, and gone. Barbara's pretty much left standing at the station watching the train depart. She needs to stop waving at the disappearing train and head for home.
Well put, Muduh!
Indeed...I don't know why Barbara messes with it all anyway either! At 74? with her career? I wouldn't give myself the headache! lol!
And no...I have never been a Star fan either......I knew she would end up leaving too (sooner rather than later).....it really doesn't surprise me.
She might be getting a divorce soon with this talk. I don't watch the show much anymore but reading all these post say its best not to watch at all. It's a lucky thing I just watch it for the bachelor thing when they are appearing. She is an embarassment to her husband if that is the way she feels, and voice it out in public, why not discuss it with him and come to some comprise. I may start to wonder if she even loves him or just with him because he was going to be a football star.
