Better than Jenny and Maury put together.
7 October 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I'll admit, Donahue, this ain't. Ricki really doesn't have enough talent to host a talk show. But, if there is one thing I do like about Ricki is that, unlike other talk show hosts, when there is a debate on her show she tries to bring up pros and cons of both sides while remaining neutral. She tries her best not to judge people. One thing I want to bring up, that most people mention, is that Ricki does the same topics ever other show. Maybe they're watching Jenny Jones and thinking it is Ricki. Ricki's topics are new every day and she doesn't do the same subject twice in one week. One day it's about the aftermath of rape, the next is about post pardom depression, the next is on people obsessed with weaves.... I quit watching Maury when I realized that every other day was either about teens dressing too sexy or paternity tests. Ricki hasn't done this so far and I hope she doesn't start now.
