I have been listening to this show for about a month on the radio. Finally had a chance to watch it this morning on TV.
Why do they have a host/'moderator' who hardly speaks? Wouldnt it be better if they had her interact a bit in the conversation?
I don't watch much TV (let alone American TV), so feel to correct me, but my impression is that many shows have hosts mostly for their looks, and bcs she is female she can also play the role of the "peacemaker" between the two genius gladiators. Creepy but also a rather usual format.
TP. Exactly. It also saves the talking heads from having to introduce segments, intro and outro the show, etc. Wilbon and Kornheiser do it but they're exceptions.
