    Evine: Be Good

    Apparently, Deasy left Evine to go to HSN in late 2018. The Gem Insider is an Evine trademark. All of his stuff at HSN is on clearance, so I assume he’s gone from there too? Looks like he & Judy are hustling something now, but I can’t tell what. I give them credit for keeping up the hustle. I suspect Earl thinks he’s gonna convince Evine to go upscale. Yeah, right. Dream on, Earl. I’m curious how long Earl will be able to push & peddle Evine’s junk. I give him till the end of the year. Welp, they can always get some castoff from JTV like Jeff or Michelle to replace him. They’ve both wound up on QVC (or HSN?), but surely won’t last long. It’s a tuff biz, eh?

    Evine: Be Good

    Just caught Earl on Evine as the Gem Insider. Had no idea he replaced Paul Deasy. How depressing. I used to watch Earl on Gem Shopping & he always boasted about how he'd never ever ever show anything that wasn't "14k gold or better". Mmmm, 'kay then. Guess Earl needed the dough bad, cuz what he was showing was mostly silver & gold-plated crapola -- oh, and the usual turquoise junk Jay King regularly pushes. Good luck to ya, Earl! Just out of curiosity, I looked at the Gem Insider stuff on the Evine site & it's kinda weird. It's mostly junk, with some sorta nice things here & there, along with a few really expensive pieces -- and I suspect that is Earl's influence. They look really out of place. Tick-tock, we'll see just how long Earl lasts at Evine. Earl had mighty mighty hoity-toidy, very expensive taste when he was at Gem Shopping. He can't be thrilled having to push the gold-plated & silver stuff (with cheap stones) that Evine mostly sells. Stopped watching JTV years ago, but just saw Nikki for a sec. I always liked her, but I never understood her hair. She still has that same long hair, which looks even more unflattering now that her face has gotten so much bigger. She's still cute, but she desperately needs to cut that hair. She was pushing the Bella Luce stuff & it did look kinda nice, if maybe a bit too blingy & tacky. Still, this is what JTV does best & clearly Nikki is their best saleslady to push it. I have zero interest in this anymore so I tuned out quick.

    Rachel got it right about him trying to distract with the latest horrible shit, but her dramatics about what happened today? Nah, I knew that would be mostly predictable & have zero impact on Trump. Hold off on the dramatics, Rach & please STOP playing Trump clips!

    Way too much Stevens stuff for me. I tuned out for the first 20 minutes or so till she finally got to covering the news of the day & the court transcript readings. I know Rach is famous for the history lessons & the lectures & many luv that stuff, but it’s not for me. I’m just done with that shit.

    The interview where I think Rach failed in a big way was the one with James Baker. She did not push back AT ALL when he did a love fest on Barr — which made me cringe. Fail, Rach, fail! She can get a lovely rapport going with whichever candidate she has on & yet she seems to have such trouble getting tough with anyone — or probing for more (badly needed) substance. Why? Is she too concerned with being nice? Or is she afraid if she’s too “tough” that they won’t come back? Rachel is definitely NOT a terrible interviewer. She’s kind & thoughtful & she’s certainly capable of asking smart, relevant & probing questions. All great things that I like about Rachel. So why do her Dem candidate interviews continue to be so meh & uninspiring & unenlightening?

    Immigration is certainly an important issue to discuss, but to spend the whole interview on it? Uh, why? Sometimes I think the media (particularly both CNN & MSNBC) get on an issue they think will drive ratings & they just beat the absolute shit out of it. This is happening now with immigration, but it's also happening with Kamala Harris. Since the debates, EVERY guest & host on CNN & MSNBC (including Rachel) has been pushing, pushing, pushing Harris as the one who's gonna end up being the Dem candidate. Just why the the hell is that? Cuz she made one cheap shot at Biden in the debates & Biden reacted ineffectively in that moment? I still know little of Harris's views & have no idea why she should be President. Look, Rachel started the show pointing to polls saying Harris has some momentum in the race. But the fact is she's still far behind Biden. So why was Rachel showing these polls, when she herself said they're mostly meaningless now? Was she justifying having Harris on, or trying to create some drama in her being there? Given what's going on now in the courts with ACA, that is the first thing she should have asked Harris about. This was a nothing interview & it was absolutely Rachel's fault. Listen, Rachel, if you're gonna spent the first 10 minutes of your show telling us why it's so important to have Harris there, & shove polls at us, then get her to open up & tell us WTF she's gonna do as President & why we should vote for her. Btw, the ONLY thing I remembered about the Bernie interview was that he smiled. Was that supposed to be Bernie taking a brief break from the cranky-old-dude routine? Otherwise, it was just Bernie spouting the same old Bernie shit.

    I know Rach was super excited to get this interview, but I figured ti would be a bunch of nothing. Athletes almost never make for good interviews. But she's very nice & her trophy looked very pretty. Look, it was a much needed break from the endless shitty, awful, horrible news Rachel has to cover.

    I get very antsy when huge news breaks on a story Rachel has been covering forever — and Rachel is NOT there to discuss it. Good to hear she’ll be back tonite. Rachel has been all over Acosta, but as Schumer & Pelosi are putting him on notice, Rachel needs to continue shining her spotlight on him as well. Ugh, yet another horrible, awful, despicable character in this administration. Kudos to Rachel. Idk how she keeps track of all these endless terrible people, but thankfully she does.

    And she repeated that awful James Baker interview, where he refused to say what a shithead Barr is -- in fact, he pretty much told Rach how he luvs Barr to pieces & that he's such a sweet & wonderful guy. Sheesh, this interview made me so nauseous, I tuned out quick, And Rachel also played very long & particularly unbearable clips of Barr & Trump. Ugh, terrible programming choice here.

    Rachel had a very important spotlight tonite about what's going on with the scientists at the Dept. of Ag. So why didn't she lead with it? Has less impact when she finally gets to it at 9:20. C'mon, Rach, 20 minutes to get to this?

    So Rach did a sum-up of the debates & I was OK with that, but why was she soooo super sunny & positive about it? Mostly, I hated the debates. The first nite was boring as fuck, except for the too short moment of Castro beating up Beto. And the 2nd nite was cringey, with Bernie acting wacky as usual & Biden being stiff & weakish, while Swalwell & Harris took cheap, manipulative, planned attacks on him. Blech. What was so great about this, Rachel? I learned NOTHING new! Rachel even found positive things to say about DeBlasio & Williamson. Uh, no, Rach. This push for the “greatness” of the shitty debates was a waste of time. And there’s gonna be a repeat of this in July? Ugh. Stick to the news nobody else covers, Rach. I appreciate that much more.

    Yeah, I get the definite impression Rach is nervous about this gig. Look, as moderator, you have you have to be prepared to be ready & able to cut people off -- if they're going over-time or off-topic. Can Rachel do this -- with her shtick of always being nice? I'm not so sure. We'll see. If she doesn't drop her nice shtick, the billions of 1-percenters, who have no shot of winning & have nothing to lose, will take advantage of Rachel's niceness & slaughter her & take over the debates. Could easily turn into a disaster. I'm a bit curious if, given her previous clobbering interview with Seth Moulton, if she doesn't bop him over the head.

    I thought it was Tucker Carlson that Rach was referring to, but I was glad not to hear either of those 2 evil fools mentioned. I do enjoy Rachel’s roasting & toasting Flynn’s new ridiculous Fox lawyer. Anyone else get the impression Rachel is not looking forward to the debates? Me neither, Rach, me neither.
  14. Lu always seems like such a zonked-out mess lately, would she be lucid enough to do such a thing . . . er, EVER?

    Last nite Rachel devoted nearly a half-hour to a NY Times story (about National Security not telling Trump about Russia-related stuff), and tonite she devoted nearly a half-hour to a WaPo story on the Shanahan mess. The diff was last nite she had no Times reporter on, & tonite she had on the WaPo reporter who broke the Shanahan story. So did it affect Rachel's show? Not really, but the WaPo reporter did add a bit to the story. In the end, the Times' stupid decision to ban reporters from Rachel's show will not have much (or any) impact on her show. It's easy to see, it will ONLY affect the impact of The NY Times' stories & the reporters who write those stories. Rachel seemed uncomfortable talking about the Shanahan story. I liked that she stressed this story is NOT about Shanahan's failing, but about this WH's failing to properly vet pretty much any cabinet nominees. Bravo for saying that, Rach!
