I can't believe this thread is up to 3 pages.

Nobody ever mentions my legendary sexual prowess.

Spoiler:

If he'll take it, Dvorak won the biweekly host contest. His ability to physically be in the studio proved to be the deciding factor.

This week though, you have to get by with Prager.

I do to. I thought it was a good show.

Edit: I was responding to your Prager comment, but my response
works for Alexia as well. I'm glad she doesn't have to touch Mike Arrington anymore.

No spoilers today because I'm out of town, but I did learn they essentially axed the gaming show for not doing anything new or unusual.

Its being retooled to focus on a Sunday LAN party.

They supposedly have a pair of good hosts to do a preshow, but the names haven't been announced.

Brushwood it turns out is one of those hosts. Notable because he's actually going to fly out to be in studio every week.

I'd much rather they got him to fly out for NSFW.

I have to wonder what kind of dough they're making that it's financially feasible to fly out for one day a week.

I don't have a bead on him, which means probably.

I liked Elgan though.

Not the best show, but not as bad as I was expecting. Dvorak didn't say much, but Malik was cranky, which was fun, and doesn't seem to like Scoble, which was also fun, since I don't really like him either.

The best part was probably before the show. Leo wouldn't stop playing with Siri, which pissed Dvorak off (surprise!), and Scoble was late, which pissed Malik off.

Leo: where is Scoble?
Om: who gives a shit?

I agree. He worked better as a spice than the main dish. Norton, as you suggested, would have been a much better regular.

I remember when the old host was talking about being moved off the show, he said on one hand he was hurt, but on the other, the lineup they were working up would be a better show, period.

Sounds about right to me.

The opposite. If I said "Glenn Rubenstein" the numerous followers of this thread would have went "who?".
