I have a running joke with friends who watch this show more often than myself. I set the over/under on how long it will take Joe Scarborough to mention either 1994 or his time in Congress (usually about 8 minutes). If Joe could get off himself more this show would work much better. Joe doesn't entirely talk over all of his guests like Matthews (who just trashes his show with his butting in), but Joe would still get much more out of his guests if he let them go a little and not constantly stop them - often before they have finished their point - and re-spin what they've said from his own one-trick-pony perspective. The bottom line is JOE STOP BABBLING SO MUCH. I guess you need a fairly strong personality to police the guests but Joe still has to talk a lot less and listen more. I can watch him for one or two days and then need a long break. The supporting cast, including Mika, Willie, Mike B and Pat B are as good as it gets. Without Joe this is a top flight panel news show, maybe the best ever; with Joe there's too much chaff to winnow from the wheat. Docked two points for Joe S's pomposity.
