Wendy Williams Show
« on: June 14, 2015, 11:31:55 AM »
Go ahead and judge me. 

When I'm cooking or doing the washing up, lately I'll put on Wendy Williams right after Rachel Maddow. 

If there were french shows as ridiculous as this Id watch/listen to them instead.

I'll watch Daily Show/Nightly Show, but most of the evening talks shows I've gone off of though still watch Conan once and awhile. 

I'm sure it's the novelty - I'm very late to being aware of who Wendy Williams is!  And I'll give up on her in a few weeks or a month or two. For the moment, she's cheerful and I like hearing her Jersey accent, it's like comfort food?

As long as it's not Reality TV, we're not judging! I find her too comical and caricatured, but I have actually watched and have seen her do some insightful stuff. Mostly it's just fluff. We all have something we watch that's the TV equivalent of empty calories. For me it's the @Midnight show on Comedy Central. (And sometimes Robot Chicken.)

Rachel Maddow's on the other end of the spectrum. She's absolutely brilliant, but has so little charisma most of the time that I may as well watch the TV inside my head. Of course, she has slightly better reporting skill than my own brain. :P

If you like Rachel Maddow, have you tried Melissa Harris-Perry? I absolutely adore her show, the MHP show, also called #NERDLAND. (Yes, with the hashtag.) She's on MSNBC from 10AM-Noon Eastern on Saturdays and Sundays.

I watched Melissa Harris-Perry over a year ago but its very hard to find now in Switzerland. She was a good guest host on Maddow for a long time then I saw her show. MSNBC yanked the full Maddow video podcast last month.

I am presently at the mercy of who bothers to upload videos for torrenting. 
(In Switzerland we are allowed to download, just not upload.)

I think Maddow has a lot of charisma but if you watch her for a few years as I have you get used to some of her schtick and pet causes and they become more about her agenda.  Agenda I usually agree with but....  I like when she gets really excited and shrieks a bit or does that honking "HA!".

Rachel's "watch this space" gets on my nerves, for some reason.  I do like her and think she does have charisma. 

I like Wendy, but rarely catch her show.  The View is a snooze.  I like "The Talk" much better.  All fluff and no politics, but maybe that's good.  Larry is great on Nightly.  He has really filled Colbert's void pretty well.  I am looking forward to his debut, as late night host on CBS.  He says he won't be doing the character.  I have to think not all of that was a character, and some must be him.  John Oliver is good.
