“The good, the bad, and the ugly”! FNC pundit and Mediaite columnist Joe Concha has a brand new show on NewsMaxTV and here’s the dope. The good? Joe and his co-host Forbes senior political contributor Rick Ungar put on a great show for political junkies discussing the issues of the day from the left and right. The bad? The show is not in HD: But, on the other hand, it is the mugs of Joe and Rick that their viewers are looking at! Re the ugly, imo, DW needs to demolish that horrid metal desk that creates distance from its viewers and replace it with a more welcoming glass one that embraces its audience; it should put up a realistic backdrop (i.e., one that does not indicate that it is dark in New York City at 6:00 p.m); end the tight shots; and add chyrons that identify the guests on the show.
DW is hopefully a work in progress. Joe is a very likeable chap who will, hopefully, make a go of it. He may need a bit more sartorial savvy: His producers should give the ole boy a well-fitting jacket like his cohort Rick.
Joe, good job! But, make it more friendly aesthetically. And, maybe, sex it up on occasion with some eye candy a la FNC!
[Author’s aside: A DW insider asked the author to give an honest review of the show, and the author believes that he has.]
