When I was younger I would watch daytime talk shows like Maury rather frequently. My issue with Maury is that it was so repetitive in its content. Also, it kind of took humanity down a peg. Everyone on Maury seemed like the lowest common denominator, and an outright poor example of a human being.
When Greg came on at 2AM one night instead of Maury, I was kind of relieved. I had grown tired of Maury and his trashy content, and I figure at least I'd get a week or so of Greg before I became tired of him. I never liked Greg Behrendt when I saw him on late night talk shows and in stand-up specials. I thought he tried to hard, and was too full of himself. However, I decided to give him a chance.
I'm glad I did, because it was unlike anything I've seen in a show of its type before. Instead of bringing out guests to pile pity on, he works with people. He brings out normal, everyday people, and he helps them overcome whatever issue they may have (a much wider variety of issues are covered here so far than I've seen in my years of Maury)in a completely constructive manner.
It's great to see a show that's so positive. Greg comes off as very friendly, although it still seems like he may be trying too hard at times, and even he acknowledges this at times.
Unfortunately, Greg hasn't been doing so well in the ratings. It may not survive past this season, so if you want to see people actually helping each other instead of arguing, you better be quick about it.
