What’s Wrong With Weir, Ritter, & Cuomo

By Brian 

“The talent search needs to widen at ABC if the network needs a substitute co-host to sit in for Diane Sawyer or Robin Roberts on ‘GMA,'” TV Week’s Michele Greppi says. Here’s her assessment:

Bill Weir: “Smart and personable,” but sometimes comes “across as smart-ass on TV.” Also: Should “take the military-sharp edges off his hair.”

Bill Ritter: Confident on WABC but “seems cowed by GMA. Always has, and apparently always will.”

Chris Cuomo: “Should never appear live. ‘Live’ is not flattering to Mr. Cuomo. Editing is. And, dear powers in heaven, please stop him before he ad-libs again.”
