Oh Noes! Gayle's new show with Charles Barkley is a FLOP!

Time to call in Oprah for a guest spot!

You don't have to be a 15 Million a year TV exec to have known that this show would have flopped. Nothing against Charles or Gayle, but c'mon.

I had no idea this was even a thing. The article sounds like it was the end result of a Mad Lib.

"The weekly show on _____(Television Network) hosted by _______ (Minor Celebrity) and _______ (Aging Sportsman) drew just ______ (Number) viewers."

The weekly show on Buzzr hosted by Mindy Cohn and Brian Boitano drew just 69 viewers.

The weekly show on WeTV hosted by Shelley Hack and Evander Holyfield drew just 911 viewers.

Gayle and her $5.99 McCrory's Shake n Go wig are FLOPS!

Well it hasn't cost much more than San Francisco's Slave Reparations and we can consider these two paid in full.

It's on at 10. Lots of ads on CNN. Nothing against either of them but what's the sell? I'm supposed to think this duo might be.....insightful?

I hate the name of this show.

Charles Barkley is painful to watch.

Gayle might be worth a show like this if she had an interesting co-star.

Gayle has a ratty Korean wig.

And Charles Barkley sounds like Fat Albert.

No thanks!

Oprah's probably having a good laugh.

Gayle is no Orca.

Who cares what Charles Barkley has to say? Only a niche audience of older sports fans, that's who.

How does a pre-taped show take phone calls?

I don't know much about Gayle, but I happened to see her doing an interview the other day, and he lap was full of papers, like a stack. Something seemed amiss.

Gayle is a mouthpiece for the Sussex pair. Whatever credibility she once might have had has been diminished by that.

Who watches these shows? It’s like they have to force it down your throats because they can’t face the idea of paid programming taking up half the day.

It does have a great title.

[quote] CNN also notes that King Charles had the youngest median viewer age (67) of any 10 p.m. cable news show Wednesday. Fox News had a median age of 73, while MSNBC’s median viewer in that hour was 76.

There is something so stale and stupid about this that just epitomizes the overall uselessness of the average cable TV executive. We're not getting those old 73-year-olds, you guys, we're getting the young and vibrant 67-year-olds!

Braindead people making multimillion dollar decisions. This is CNN, bom, bomp.

Why would two elderly black people be successful in a prime time news show? This is the USA.

Strange show. Gayle and Charles have no chemistry. He seems to rant and not really be interested in her opinion. And they still haven't worked out the tone of the show. It goes from light banter to talking to Clarissa Ward about the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, which feels strange for a show with a bright purple set and Gayle in neon green.

No, it doesn’t. Americans have no fucking interest in the Royals and even if they did, it’s a stupid title for a show.

Gayle is more suited to taking her wrath out on those pussybois on the CBS morning show.

by Anonymousreply 24December 14, 2023 6:48 AM

I watch a couple of minutes and it was bad. From the tiny bit I saw it looked like Gayle was walking Barkley through the material to keep it coherent.

by Anonymousreply 25December 15, 2023 9:14 PM

I like Gayle, but my experience with her was when she was local anchor in Hartford, CT. But this was a horrible idea for a show.
