Stephen Colbert took over as host, executive producer and writer of THE LATE SHOW on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015. The comedy-variety-talk show is broadcast five nights a week from the Ed Sullivan theater in New York.
Morning Joe came out of the Don Imus-Rutgers fiasco. After several different co-hosts like Stephanie Miller, Jim Cramer, etc., Joe Scarborough who was a congressman from Florida turned broadcaster along with his sidekicks such as Mika Brezinski whose father is Zbignew Brezinski worked for the Carter Administration. She also has two brothers-one works for the Obama campaign while the other works for the McCain campaign. I wasn't happy with Mika regarding her treatment of Hillary Clinton during her bid for the democratic nomination. Never mind that Hillary was robbed of the nomination, Mika's eyes always appear to roll when ever she mentioned Hillary's chances with Terry McAuliffe who was head of the Clinton campaign. Willie Geist is the son of Bill Geist, a veteran television broadcaster who got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Regardless of their relations, Willie and Mika are quite refreshing to Morning Joe. They go over headlines in major newspapers like they do in London, England. They have several guest hosts like the late Tim Russert, Tiki Barber, Joe Ridley, Pat Buchanan, etc. They get people with a lot of different opinions. What got me was a couple of weeks ago that Alan Cumming, Tony Award winner and flamboyant homosexual starwith an Obama shirt, was on television and Pat Buchanan was also in the studio. I would have given anything to have Pat interview Alan over Willie and Mika. It would have been a television moment to remember and I would still be laughing about it even now or years from now.
