6. Noory isn't all bad.
There is a fine line between "crazy" and "extra-super-crazy" and although he doesn't follow it as easily as Art Bell did, he does an ok job with the material and guests he interviews.

You really can't compare the two. That's like comparing Johnny Carson and Jay Leno. Of course Jay isn't as good, nobody probably would be, but he is decent.

I agree, they probably should find someone better over the long term, but the blame falls as much on Bell as it does on Noory as Bell hasn't given much input to it over the years. It was HIS show and he sold out to some company. It's not like Art Bell is thinking he could do better because he could certainly have an internet show or something. He just sits around in the desert or something.
