Gaffer's tape for Leo!

By jian1019 - May 01 2012
Read more
The show has a number of very good to excellent guests. Catherine can be a good interviewer when she is allowed to conduct the questions. What drives me crazy is Leo's constantly talking over either the questioner or even worse when somebody is trying to answer. Leo acts like one of those insecure people who has to show that they have something to offer even when they don't. Depending upon the guest, I'll listen to either the audio or wath the video. Leo's interrupting is really grating if you are just listening to the audio. Suggestion - slap some gaffer's tape on Leo's mouth and let him write out any questions he has.
