I watched this show for the first time today (A case of not taking a moment to change the channel after the previous show), and-- if this is any kind of a sample of what is usually aired-- this is *bad*.
It's mainly seems to consist of the typical, talk-show "Here are these people with dreadful problems that we are going to solve," minus the solution. On today's show, he paraded several families that could be described as troubled, although to varying degrees. After hearing all their ills, Walsh refers them to counseling and tells them how "proud" he is of them for airing their dirty laundry on television. As for his viewpoint-- apparently he feels it's perfectly acceptable for parents to tap the phones and read the mail of teenage children *without* having first really tried to communicate with them. *Then* the parent confronts (for the first time) the errant teenager on *national television*.
Hello? What kind of kid is going to open up after *that*?
Summation: Perfectly dreadful show, severely misguided advice, and a second-rate wanna-be. Avoid it!
