How is getting Regis going \"all-out\"?

I\'m sorry, was someone relevant speaking?

Of all the names that were tossed around for this, (and trust me when I tell you that I know MUCH more than Lets Go Wankees), she was the worst selection, and that\'s truly a shame, cause there were some solid names that could have made this ----- better.


 


She can\'t read, she can\'t adlib, she has little \'authority\' to command presence during a speed round (the entire essence of the game). So why did GSN pick her up? Oh, right. Those.

Authority and command are two of the words I was trying to think of. It isn\'t necessary for a quiz show host to know all the answers (it is obvious when Bradley Walsh knows or doesn\'t know something in the Chase rounds), but hosting a quiz does require a certain presence, and from watching the two dozen Dog Eat Dog episodes that\'s something I don\'t remember her having. (That\'s to say nothing of her saying \"incorrect\" after somebody passed or gave no answer.) She wasn\'t bubbleheaded, but she was mediocre in her competency at everything that didn\'t involve cheering on the contenders.

Hey, maybe she\'ll surprise all of us.

He\'s \"retired\" but he has his sports show coming in August. So he\'ll still do TV.

 


I know correcting you does precious little good, but Regis never retired.  He simply stopped doing his morning show.  By your leap of logic, David Letterman retired in 1980.

Another part of this is going to be chemistry- if Brooke is passable in the speed rounds but pairs up really well with Mark Labett in banter, it could click- especially if the question writers are clever about it. I do agree with others who say they\'ll be playing up the \"Beauty and The Beast\" angle to this...don\'t know if that tipped the scales in her favor once talks with Dan Patrick fell apart (and actually, I don\'t think he would have worked well in this format- I see him as more of a Cube host than Chase)..

Prospective contestants; do you want a host who can read questions well at speed or who can keep a steady flow of chatter with the brigand who stands between you and your money?

GSN confirms Brooke Burns as host of The Chase in a press release. They also confirm that the format, likely for time constraints, is altered to feature three contestants taking on the Beast.


He also tweeted that \"I think the US Chase could be something special. Impressed with Brooke Burns\' presenting skills.\"

If she\'s engaging said brigand in conversation while the clock is running instead of asking him questions, it might be a coin toss. :)

I want a host who can read the question at the same speed for both parties.  One of Walsh\'s few deficits is that when he gets caught up in the action late in the final chase, he fires off questions especially quickly, more quickly than he doesn for the contestants, and this seems slightly unfair.


 


As to what makes good television?  A steady cadence is worthless if it\'s at a snail\'s pace.

I mean, he didn\'t necessarily have to respond...I don\'t know, I take it as a good sign.

It\'s advertising. No more, no less. If you want to take it as a good sign, great, but to be consistent you should also believe that New, Improved Bounty Paper Towels are in fact New and Improved just because they told you so.
