Most evening’s at 9:00 PM we watch the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC. I prefer Rachel’s show over both Hardball with Chris Matthews and Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Rachel is less acerbic and wittier than both Chris and Keith. She is also more playful but can be deadpan series when she wants to.
Rachel noted that she upholds two commandments: Don’t lie and don’t kill people. I can live with that. Truly, I can.
Last night we thought we had great seats when we were placed in the front row, only to discover during taping that there were many times we could not see Jon because one of the cameras was between us and him. Before taping was completed Jon announced that he needed to re-record a couple of his comments accompanying the video segments. Since only the sound was being recorded and not video, both Jon and the staff were more relaxed for these few minutes than they had been for the rest of the show.
