Robin Roberts this week. LeVar Burton next week.
I can't wait! I'll be getting Paramount+ just to watch LeVar host.
Sounds like Burton's first episode didn't go so well but then he approached the remaining episodes differently.
Here's the full AP interview instead of A.V. Club's snippets and misattribution to the Seattle Times. The whole thing is worth reading.
Got the dvr set.
I've had my calendar marked for months now! Let's do this, people!!
Levar looks like he snorted coke or popped amphetamines before he went on the air.
That's a bit harsh; I think he just looked a little nervous.
Yup, he was a bit nervous for the first episode, but here's hoping that chat with his wife helped him out for the remaining four.
I was thinking that too. He was just nervous.
The way I look at it, the other guest hosts know they're only filling in and they're not in contention for the job of permanent host so they're relaxed and having fun.
Levar wants this job and this is his chance to show/prove to the producers and the fans that campaigned for him that he can fill Alex's shoes; so he's understandably nervous on his first night.
Well, Burton's first night as guest host was one for the record books.... in that one contestant scored a record-low negative $7,400, breaking the previous record of negative $6800 set in 2015.
Wow, I thought scores that low only happened on the SNL skits.
Yeah, that was just painful to watch. I felt bad for the guy.
Ah, so that was a record. I wondered. I felt really bad for that guy.
Not as wired as yesterday, but Levar needs to chill out a little. Part of Alex's appeal was that he he was always laid back and easy going. Sanjay Gupta has been the best guest-host so far IMHO.
I thought he did a decent job for his first episode. I mean, sure, he tripped up a few times, but I think anyone finding themselves hosting one of the most popular shows would feel it a daunting experience. I'm sure being up on that stage made him choke up at the implication of what he was finally doing. What I ended up liking the most so far has been the voice. He has a nice clear even voice that's easy to hear, and his enunciation is good.
I though Levar did really well today, as good as any other of the guest hosts.
I agree he did much better today. I think part of the problem is LeVar's high energy is a jarring contrast to the low energy of the returning champion, Matt. LeVar paired a lot better with Barb and I was really rooting for her to win today.
