Trump gets impeached last night. Chuck Todd comes on the next day to pick games.

Jeff Ma, who speaks in a monotone and puts me to sleep, has to email his picks.

Tony admits they have no culture guest and need one.

No Howard Fineman and his excellent political analysis with our pending election next year.

The show really kinda sucks lately IMO.

I FF Chuck and Jeff's picks weekly. Who wants to hear these guys pick games?

Reginold the monkey. What is the appeal of this segment. I have no idea.

Did anyone really enjoy Kevin's forecast? Does anyone find Kevin funny......... ever?


Easy ways to fix the show....


Only person who should pick games are Carville and someone with actual NFL insight.

Get a funny and engaging culture writer like we used to have with Lisa. She was awesome.

Get a smart political analyst who can discuss all things 2020 election.

Never do another Reginold bit. Never let Kevin back on the show ever again.

TK is so bad at politics that I wouldn't even want Howard back. I have too much respect for Howard. It is indisputably true that TK doesn't read the A-section of his own newspaper. That's how appalling his level of ignorance about political stuff is.

TK's only political statements these days concerns people "wanting to put their hands in my wallet." He has no other concern nor interest.

More:
Kip (not happening)
Stories about TK's life
*some* political talk
Different guests, which I feel like they have been doing lately, kind of
TK Rants (preferably about non-political things)
Pushback in general towards TK

Less:
Picks - just do fewer games with Todd. I actually like the Reginald because it's short and to the point, plus I like the song. Carville is great. I can take or leave Ma.
Repetitive questions to guests/in segments. Especially week-to-week. The Patriots are done, these quarterbacks all BEAT the PATRIOTS, ALPHA MALE MAX SCHERZER, etc. I don't really mind it during the week, because there's only so much you can talk about it, but when it's the same points week to week and month to month it really gets annoying.
Golf talk in general, especially during the off-season
Cillizza. I don't mind him once a week (preferably not on a Monday) but more than that and I want to throw my phone through a window.
Talking over each other! (Kind of goes with getting rid of Cillizza).

Get Rid Of:
That dumb outro audio of Bootsie saying, "Max Scherzer!"It's only cute when it's YOUR kid. Really wish I could find the audio from a few years ago, before Bootsie was born, of TK going on the rant against other people's kids. Unless they're doing this knowingly, which I would at least respect.

Fix:
Audio levels. I don't know if it's just the new studio they're in or what, but guests on the phone are always way too quiet, and often at least one in-studio guest is too quiet as well. It's super annoying to be listening in a car and have to turn the audio all the way up to hear a guest and then hear TK at 100 db.

Overall I still like the show and listen, but I'm not necessarily rushing to my phone for it every day.

1000x this! And it's only going to get worse. The clock is ticking until Bootsie gets mic time, probably talking golf with MK.
