Countdown 12-4-09

Postby eblackadder3 » Sat Dec 05, 2009 3:59 pm

I missed both Keith and Rachel last night, got stuck in a horrific traffic jam. Did Keith show up (It was Friday!)?

No, David Shuster was filling in.

The show had an impressive guest line-up, though, for a non-Keith night!

Yeah, now if only if Keith was actually there, then maybe I would have watched it! See, I really have nothing against David Shuster, it's just he's not suited for Countdown. I like Lawrence O' Donnell much better.

What did they talk about?

Nobody comes to watch Countdown with David Shuster.

I so like Shuster, but his delivery of Countdown stuff just isn't the same as Keith or Lawrence. David is a bit stiff, I think. Even to how he sits. But I like him on other shows, so it's kind of weird. I guess I am saying it is mighty hard to fill Keith's shoes..... :P

I really like Shuster's attitude/outlook - whenever he appears in other places for interviews and is a little freer to express himself, he strikes me as having his head screwed on very well.
Those are the headlines...god I wish they weren't.

Shuster started out as a news correspondent and he's always most effective the closer he is to that role.

As guest host on an opinion-driven show he does his best, but it always strikes me that he's feeling slightly out of his element.
