I agree with the "too many talking heads" theme. All the shows seem to be doing it.

Love Rachel and Jen Psaki, but CNN had a marvelous interview with Doris Kearns Goodwin.

Having too many people in a panel appears to keep some panelists from being heard, as they defer to others to keep from appearing too rude or overbearing. Have noticed that, before, also, going back years!

Thanks for mentioning it.

14. Ya know, I wonder this myself.....was reading how the new winner on Jeopardy is annoying people

because he keeps moving back and forth and it’s bothering some people.

Jeopardy! fans are crying foul after seeing the latest champion on the game show’s rather “distracting” behavior. The person in the center of the protest is champion Ray LaLonde. Viewers are definitely tiring of LaLonde swaying back and forth.

LaLonde is a scenic artist from Ontario. He’s been impressing fans with his knowledge. Winning four episodes in a row put him in qualification mode for the 2023 Tournament of Champions. His knowledge of trivia definitely does impress viewers a lot. But his swaying back and forth while answering questions is causing fans to cry out, TV Insider reports.

15. Yes like that. Or inviting a singer to your party, than insisting they sing to entertain your guests

My wife and I are musicians--singers, primarily--and this happens occasionally. Last time was when I was getting a picture taken for a church directory, and when the photographer found out I was a singer, they wanted me to sing something. I was half-tempted to say, "Sure! If you don't mind photographing a bunch of things for me for free!"

I know it's a sweet intention, and I'm grateful to work in a field that can affect people so positively, but I have never enjoyed having to entertain on demand.
