I know that I wrote several times about how disappointed I was when they cancelled the Bonnie Hunt Show. I really did miss that feel-good show, and tried to replace it with other talk shows that I sampled, none of which I found myself wanting to “commit to” watching every day.
Let me mention that we don’t get the newspaper. We don’t pull a Paul Simon (“I get the news I need on the weather report…”), rather, we get our news from the internet. So, I had a novel idea… Why don’t I find a morning show that suits me… something that I can get invested in… a show with hosts who I feel I could listen to five days a week. That might solve both my gathering-of-news and my feel-good show problem, and give me something I can leave on while cooking dinner (I tape everything!) or while I perform some other mindless activity. (Hmmm… I wonder if my cooking reflects my attitude about it being a mindless activity?!?)
Eureka! I found the show!!! The last three months I have been watching/listening to the CBS Early Morning Show. I truly enjoy Harry Smith at the helm of the two hour show. Smith, along with Maggie Rodriguez and Dave Price, gave me another show that I thought was top rate, and I actually looked forward to seeing them.
Kiss of Death!!! I tell you, it never fails! There are two things of which I am sure: 1. When I get in the shortest line at the grocery store, invariably someone in front of me will need the cashier to go retrieve a pack of cigarettes from the locked-down area at the front of the store. OR 2. When I find a show that I really like, it is only a matter of time before it will be cancelled.
In short, CBS has decided to replace Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez, and Dave Price with a whole new team of anchors. I guess it’s time for me to start listening to music… off of DVDs that we own. That way, they can’t be cancelled!
***I’m sorry, but I have decided not to post any more comments about this topic. Today (January 4, 2011) I am seeing that I’m being inundated with so many comments from people who are as unhappy about this change in hosts as I am. But, as this is a blog about Cozy Mystery books, I am going to have to agree with you all about how bad this decision is, but am not going to post any more comments.***
