    Does anyone else share my opinion that the hostess (whatever her name is...) is terrible? She tries too hard to be dramatic, mispronounces words, etc. "Yea you can see me looking at you..." was the last straw.... She has to go. Because of her, tonight's results episode was painful to watch.

    I dont know, any results episode that gets dragged out to 1 hour when it should be 30 min is painful anyways.  We know what movies they shot from the recap, and we don't need to hear every word the judges said to them.

    The hostess isn't great, but she could be worse.  At least shes easy on the eyes.

    I think she's a good host(although rather painfull at telling results) but Ryan from AI is way better. Give her a few more years...

    Ugh, She definately needs to go. She is trying WAY too hard to be Ryan Seacrest, who doesn't do to well to begin with. Some things that she could learn from ryan is DON'T READ EVERYTHING THE JUDGES SAID! Seriously. We didn't need to hear all the "sex" comments about Checking out or whatever it was called. She makes poor attempts at causing Suspense when she says After the break, but it isn't suspenseful, especially since Ryan Seacrest has said it every week for 5 years.

     Just sever the ties now and get it over with before she gets stuck to the show.

    it's almost like the hostess is trying to emulate brooke burke from rockstar INXS. she's just so uninspiring.

    I think that's she's fine... They just need to make the resuts show more intresting. And not so filler-ish. But for the love of God get rid of Carrie Fisher...

    What's wrong with this show has very little to do with her, IMO.

    From Chelsea Handler to whoever this new person is, you can definitely tell the difference.   I don't really know who Chelsea Handler is, but they did wrong in replacing her. 

    My favorite part is when she says something twice, but just in different ways.   Watch for it, you'll hear her do it... A LOT.    Something like, "These are the movies you voted on, so now let's take a look at the movies America voted for!"

    I noticed that too... The funniest was when she repeated exactly what Garry Marshall had said, "that a director is only as good as the last film they made." and was oblivious to the fact, as it was obvious that she was reading from cue cards... A good hostess would've picked up on that and either ab lib something different, or cut it completely... instead she said it like it hadn't been just said like a minute beforehand in a dramatic fashion...

    I agree, she's absolutely awful! She must be related to somebody to have gotten the role. How else can you explain insipid delivery and overall poor interviewing. UGH! Adrianna Costa begone!

    But this "On the Lot" airs in FOX. Besides that, they make this show have the same work flow as American Idol. So why not compare with Ryan Seacrest?

    To me, "On the Lot" has bigger problem other than crappy hostess. The show appears as an AI-clone but that's totally not fit to a movie-themed reality show.

    And the judges. They are not as distinctive as AI's. (Yeah lots of viewers did not like them. But they actually are funnier.) They should get Simon Cowell to coach these judges how to be hated and be loved.

    The high light of this first result show is that revealing dress on Andrianna Costa. Other than that, this one-hour show is really really painful to watch.

    i really don't like watching her or listening to her voice. BUT this is actually a good show so we've got to deal with it.

    Wow!  I thought I was the only one who thought she was awful...I feel the same way many of you have stated.  Good to know that I am not alone.
