Other people in the family enjoy this kind of stuff, but I think that this show is a joke, especially from a technical aspect. The topics covered are typical daytime talk show schlock, which in and of itself isn't bad, but rather predictable. However, the production values are laughable. Because the show is filmed inside a "real house", filming is incredibly awkward. There are crew members constantly walking into frame, realizing that they just walked into frame and abruptly walking out. The hosts are running about to different parts of the house....sometimes they don't make it in time for their cue. Much of the time, there's some sort of audio feed issue with a guest, which just adds the the awkwardness. Also, the hosts (Steines and Davis) accidentally read each others lines, or those of their guests quite often. Paige Davis, while pleasant and upbeat, usually degenerates into a goofy mess by the end of the segment. I don't blame this on her, I blame it on how badly the show is run. Steines is a bit more composed, but you can tell with the guests that things are awkward and they would rather be somewhere else.
The concept is novel (filming in an actual house), the hosts can be likable and the topics are fine, but whoever is running/directing this show needs to be fired ASAP. I know it's a daytime talk show and I would normally never write anything about this sort of thing, but the way the show is run is just terrible, one of the worst I've ever seen. It's an insult to the viewers and to the hosts.
