Do you plan on watching?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

5. LOL
I saw that someone voted for that option and my first thought was "WTF!" Followed by visions of a pig-tailed teenager mooning over Tiger Beat. Thanks for admitting that you were the one and why. fwiw, I like the option that you thought you saw.

4. It will depend on the guest
I didn't like Russert but I watched for the guests (at least as long as I could stand it). I don't like Bill Maher either but I watch his show for the guests too. If Gregory really, really sucks then I will turn it off. Just like I've turned off Maher when he lets one of his guests take over the show and makes it a waste of my time.

6. I haven't been a fan of Meet the Press since Garrick Utley was moderator
Russert was OK, but I thought he ventured well into the usual claptrap that people like Brokaw and Gregory would go... Russert was no angel (I wish him well however)...

So Gregory gets the gig... I'll watch, but with the same view that they must serve their corporate masters on some level and never really ask questions considered "inappropriate". You'll never hear questions or concerns that would make General Electric or Microsoft look bad... count on it.

7. They make so much out of a show that doesn't get very high ratings
but I guess since it's a hallmark of NBC news it's a big deal.

9. I was trying to inject something out of left field onto the boards....as
The other options as topic du jour on the board appear to be Caroline Kennedy (yeah!), Loopy Freepers vs. President Obama (Nay!), Cardboard Groping scandal (whatever!), or "The left hates Obama today" (again?). LOL!
