Hello! Welcome to the new (and hopefully improved) version of the Michigan Radio & TV Buzzboard. I am hoping to roll out multiple new features in the weeks ahead, which is made possible by the recent upgrade to phpBB version 3.2. This upgrade should result in added ability to customize your user experience. Please visit the newly created "Buzzboard v3.0 features" forum to view announcements as to recently installed features, as well as to report any issues or share your opinions regarding recent changes.

Thank you very much for your interest in the Buzzboard! -Regards, M.W.

GMA Studio Audience

Post by Calvert DeForest » Sat Jan 07, 2017 12:16 pm

I don't know how long Good Morning America has integrated a live studio audience, but I just happened to catch it the other day. Guess the infotainment cycle is complete. Not impressed. It hearkens back to the days when NBC totally ruined Tom Snyder's Tomorrow show by abandoning the one-on-one interview format in favor of a studio audience (and Rona Barrett). At least David Letterman's production company returned Tom to his native element on CBS for a few years.

How long before the Today Show follows suit?

Even though I don't watch GMA, my parents used to watch it so I've occasionally seen it. They've had the studio audience for at least a couple of years. Seems kind of dumb to me.

I don't see Today doing this in studio as they have their audience outside and they go out there...

The only other time I recall GMA having a studio audience was for the Erma Bombeck segments early in the show's run in the late-1970s, which were recorded separately from the rest of the program.

There's a name I haven't heard in years.

She died in 1996. I remember our teacher mentioned AA Milne son, the child for which he wrote the Winnie The Pooh Series had died. I then mentioned Erma Bombeck had also died and my friend Karen, (a really good person) was kind of shocked. Wow I really miss college.
