After the demise of Imus, MSNBC auditioned a number of concepts for their morning news program before finally, and unfortunately settling on MORNIN' JOE.
Scarbourough, once a congressman, just does not posses the personality to drive a three and often four hour morning news show. He is abrasive, argumentative, and often just plain rude to his guests, and quite often displays vast amounts of chauvinistic behavior towards his co-host, Mika Brezenzski. In fact, on occasions it appears that he actually brow-beats the poor lass with his right-wing diatribe.
If all this weren't bad enough, he continues to attempt to engage in feeble humorous quips, all the while openly flirting with his other co-host Willie Geiss. If the viewer STILL hasn't been offended by now, just stay tune...Pat Buchanan will be on as a regular to finish the job for you.
I suppose that there are some improvements that could be made by MSNBC to keep this show on the air...perhaps they could dump Joe and Willie and let Mika do the show solo and naked. Otherwise this is a total loss.
