Trashy daytime TV (talk shows and court shows) are a guilty pleasure of mine. One thing that has always bothered me is that the hosts are too nice. They never say what I would say to the woman who has tested seven men and still hasn’t found her baby daddy or the man who slept with his girlfriend’s mom.
But I think that will change with Nancy Grace. She has the latest entry into the crowded courtroom show market. In Swift Justice with Nancy Grace, the former prosecutor is hearing cases and making rulings. Since she isn’t a real judge her show has a completely different feel. She doesn’t wear a robe or pound a gavel. There is no trusty bailiff standing off to the side. Instead, she stands behind a desk and freely walks around her blue stage. She also has a large screen behind her that she uses to interview experts, witnesses and defendants who couldn’t make it to Atlanta to appear on the show.
I don’t watch Nancy Grace’s CNN show but I have seen it. I think her pull-no-punches style will translate well into the daytime market. What I like best about her show is that I finally have someone who is saying the same things that I would say if I could. She blatantly asks one defendant accused of beating his girlfriend, “What were you thinking?”
Get’em Nancy. I’ll be watching.
