The basic problem with CtoC is its credulous nature. It doesn't really matter if you replace one credulous host with another credulous host, or one
that bashes the right with one that bashes the left. The nature of the show itself is that they book nutcases who encounter no opposition from the
hosts. it's an easy gig. So we are left with listening to people who claim there are glass houses on the moon, that Serpo is real, or that the Queen
is a reptilian. And what do the hosts say? "Oh, wow!" is about the extent of it. Yes, some hosts have been capable of bringing up some opposition,
but it amounts for a target for the guests to swing at.
After literally years of this kind of programming the only conclusion you can reach is that it must be on purpose, that cc intentionally wants to keep
CtoC producing this pablum for the masses rather than anything serious or that would take resources to research. When CC says, "This is not the
direction we want to go in.' the translation is that they don't really want to go anywhere they haven't already been. I am not privy to ratings
numbers, of course, Either CC is completely wrong and their show is falling apart, or they are completely right and want to keep the audience they
have, with nothing much exciting happening that might disturb the serenity of the night.
George Knapp is a welcome exception, but he already has a real job. Why would he leave that, where he is a well-respected journalist who has won
national awards in his field, by slumming for CtoC, where he would be laughed off the stage by his peers? It's amazing he has done as much as he has,
but apparently his employer's point of view is that his hobbies are his own business.
Bottom line is that CtoC is a show put on by nutcases hosted by nutcases with nutcase guests for an audience of insomniacs or night-shift workers who
really have nothing better on the dial to listen to.
