Actually, I think yanking the two hosts would really be the most merciful thing for the show. And the viewers. I watched the first few episodes, finally deciding to give it a break for a few months to give them time to get better. They haven't. My dearest hope is that TPTB (namely: Mr. and Mrs. Ebert) will sit down and give this show a good, hard look and give serious thought to ditching them. These two are just not verbally articulate in a way that works on television.

Bring back A.O. Scott and Michael Phillips! Or at least provide us with better reviewers. *sigh*
