So why not? He's on TV. And he's a real snappy dresser. However I'd say in all honesty that he is a rather mundane interviewer. He's about like Rose on PBS. They both have great guests. And tend to ask the same old questions.

In my humble opinion, the days may very well be numbered for these same old/look-alike talks shows. One guest. Sparse set. Heavy key lighting. Two shot, CU, Wide shot, Over Shoulder. Nothing new is every learned.

I'd rather see Hoagy Carmichael as a speaker. Native sun. Great songs. Alas, he has passed away!
