  • Too Many Changes

    8.5
    With all of the changes since the passing of Tim Russert, the focus of Meet the Press has gotten lost. I believe to maintain the existing audience the changes should have been held to a minimum. The biggest mistake was to make Meet the Press look like a completely different program. With the death of Tim Russert the program was going to look different enough with a new host. But to go further and completely revamp the set and change the way talent and guests interact with the camera was an even BIGGER mistake. I fear all they've done is make a bad situation worse by making the show so unfamiliar to the audience they now feel uncomfortable. Meet the Press doesn't LOOK like MTP anymore! Changes to the set and format of the show should have only been made once the show was back on a firmer footing. But to decide upon Russert's death to literally change everything didn't make sense because the show doesn't look like MTP anymore. It's almost like with his passing they canceled MTP and replaced it with a another show but with the same name. Slowly transitioning the show back to its 2008 look would make MTP familiar again to the viewers and stabilize the ratings. It never made sense with his passing to change everything about the show just because he wasn't there anymore. I feel for Chuck Todd in his new position, but especially so with his ardent defense of his beard. But I also believe a host should reflect the look of most of the guests being interviewed, and few if any of those guests have "fu-manchu's"! Although I'm a big fan of Jon Stewart, bringing him in to host MTP as some have suggested would have been a "disaster" based on the available audience at 9:00AM Sunday morning. Just my two cents!moreless

    Let's face it. Tim Russert WAS Meet The Press for a lot of us. He's a tough act to follow. I, personally hardly ever missed his program and looked forward to the fair, but tough grilling anybody brave enough to be on his show took. He would have decimated Sarah Palin had she appeared and at the end would have sincerely wished her well. He was fair, tough and a gentleman.moreless
  • no facts heard here

    I Have stopped watching this program. When this is just propaganda and no facts related I am not wasting my time on conspiracy theorists, out right distortions of the facts in evidence. People need to be provided the fax on a story not just someone's opinions. Everyone has an opinion but that is not always fact. When you actually start calling people out on both sides of their making their own facts then this might be a show worthy to watch. Until then no we do not need another fox TV show.moreless
  • Not Fair and Balanced

    5.0
    I've only been watching various political news shows for about 2 years. I'm pretty moderate on social issues, but pretty conservative on economic issues. I've also had years in Accounting/Finance experience as a Contoller. I have been interested in Meet the Press lately, but cannot stand watching these shows anymore- including The Today Show, CNN, and obviously MSNBC. Anyone with a sensible, analytical, attention to details type of brain will be infuriated at the lack of analyses of true facts- it's very transparent. They don't break it down to the root of problems on immigration reform, racial issues (Ferguson)- you name it. Fox News is new to me as well, and I can see at least a fair and balanced attempt to break down most of the facts and get to the truth of uncomfortable issues. Chuck Todd seems to be a good moderator and analytical as I like. But he doesn't get to use that skill much- not much in the way of follow up questions on most of the democrats on his panel. Wonder why? They seem to have open mic with no real rebuttal. Another news show that can't use common sense - people in mid- America are craving this!moreless

      Tim Russert is almost irreplaceable. I know it's soon, but the NBC management must be thinking hard on how to replace him. I fig...
