I can’t stand Martha. Her voice is like chalk on a chalk board. Today she interrupted Karl Rove twice.
I have been waiting for Megan to come back.

I like Bill Hemmer to....just darn.

I believe Trace will still be on in the 2 hours in between the AM show and Megyn’s show.

I think it is against forum rules to refer to the esteemed Ms. Kelly without an accompanying photo ...

D’oh! With her at America’s Newsroom, I could watch before I went to work. Now I’ll be at work while she’s on.

I can’t stand Martha. Her voice is like chalk on a chalk board.

Me, either! ...but, for me it's more like a set of long, thick gel nails being scraped slowly down the full length of a blackboard! UGH!

Bill & Megyn are both great and likable singularly, but, they are really good together...they have great chemistry!

The morning schedule needs more Patty Anne Brown. Waking up and seeing her first thing in the morning is a good thing.

I didn’t care for the match up — Hemmer and Kelley. Megyn would get too giddy with Bill at times.

I do like the current match up — Hemmer and McCallum.

[I don’t like giddy or silly with my news. I usually watch that weekend bunch just long enough to get the headlines.]

Ditto. She is one smart women. I watched her skewer a rat lawyer during an interview one day. She garnered my instant respect. Shep is a liberal moron, but I repeat myself.

I thought she was never coming back, she's been gone so long. I like the idea of her doing a solo show, primarily because I am sick of all the banter that two-sies & three-sies must engage in --- it wastes a huge hunk of time and is entirely unnewsworthy.

She is so intelligent that I'd rather listen to what she has to say directly to the camera or to her guests, and none of that conversational banter which really gets on my nerves, it's all over the airwaves, banter banter followed by rude interruptions and then more banter banter. I rarely turn the TV on anymore.

Megan Kelly is not only really, really smart but she’s really, really FAST at it. You might find another mind that works as well, but I’ve never seen anyone who can process and analyze so quickly.

Jamie Colby works too. PAB is definitely hot. What makes them hot is how smart they are. Not just pretty faces. Liked Hemmer and Kelly together. Kelly’s husband, weirdly, is a dead ringer for Hemmer. Very weird.

Agreed, but weekends are not the issue -— it’s the weekday line up that’s undergoing the changes.

Close your eyes and listen to Martha. She sounds exactly like Lorraine Bracco, the actress who played the psychiatrist on THE SOPRANOS and the wife in GOODFELLAS
