    I have to admit, I thought that Michael was a bad choice for co-host, but after watching him, I have grown to like him and think the show made a good choice.

    Have stopped watching the show.

    Don’t want to hurt anyones feelings, but that strip tease ( tacky), those teeth, and his not too bright comments are a real channel changer for me!
