The Drew Barrymore Show

How do you think her show would be? 

IDK, I’m finding it a bit awkward? It’s probably the absence of an audience that makes it boring.

I love Drew Barrymore. It's awkward for me to watch her hosting a show. I know she's giving it her all. It's just unfortunate that she doesn't have an audience in studio to play off. But, I hope that network gives her a shot.

I think she should interact with the zoomers at the beginning of the show.  Even if it’s just a couple of minutes before she does the news items.  ‘John in Boston I heard you got a new puppy” , “ Susan in Baltimore I heard you became an aunt”. I think it would make the opening transition easier.

she has no cohost or second banana to feed off of...it’s going to be hard.  I think they are going to have to bring in some kind of a ‘ Gelman’ lol.  

She is trying.

I like Drew as an actress and was willing to give her a shot despite reservations. I got irritated within 5 min by the hyperactivity. I can't see her as a brilliant interviewer. Who is the audience she's aiming at? I didn't watch much more of it. Given Adam Sandler and Tom Greene were her comic influences, I can't see it going in a good direction there. Also, what was up with the prairie dress?

It felt like a very long, boring episode.  It felt awkward, and I am not sure that it was just the lack of audience.  It made Kelly's show extra refreshing and easy to watch.  lol

Well,   Miss Barrymore is less hyper and OTT compared to Harry Connick, Jr. was on his talk show.  And if one doesn't want to tune in to a show  with  a host having more depth than a pancake, this would be fit the bill. That's about all the pluses I can think of.

I don't really watch talk shows much, but Drew Barrymore getting her own show intrigued me. I haven't really tracked her career , but I feel like Drew Barrymore is too good for this world. I want to protect her and shield her from any and all criticism because she seems so earnest and like she just wants to put good out into the universe (please no one ruin that impression for me!). I didn't mind the show at all, and it made me laugh out loud a fair amount (though admittedly that was sometimes because some parts were so bonkers). Sometimes I had to watch through metaphorical fingers covering my eyes because of the threat of second hand embarrassment, but I was entertained in some manner throughout.

Very different from Busy Philips's show, but I'm hoping this one improves just like Busy's did as Drew gets more comfortable and the show settles in (I was legitimately sad when Busy's show ended).

I really like Drew Barrymore but ... was anyone asking for this?  I mean, good for her and all, but this just seems so random to me.  Let's give Drew Barrymore a talk show!  Um, okay? 

And I am sure it is the perfect job for her to have lifestyle wise, what with her 2 young kids and it being a steady day job gig, but I always kind of consider these random celebrity talk shows to be a step down the career chain, not exactly a step up.  A settling thing.

I have no idea if anyone was asking for this.  Was Drew a big social media presence to lead into this opportunity?

Reese looks like she lost weight since Big Little Lies 2.

I know it is just a horror movie, but I think Drew's performance in "Scream" is so iconic, and not a lot of young actresses could have pulled that off.  If the show lasts over a year I'd love to see the Scream 5 cast on.

I think most of us feel the same. I for one, love her romcoms and am intrigued by her life. I have now watched 2 episodes. Tuesdays's didn't tape but even after just 2, I don't know if I can take anymore. She is not cut out for this. And today, WTF was that? Talking about her daughters need to poop?  Good Grief! Gross and since when do you take motrin for constipation? Just weird. the whole show is awkward . Can not wait for normalcy to return to this world, that goes for entertainment either. Corona entertainment  is not cutting it for the most part.

I know, I just walked away quickly when I heard where the topic was going.  I know she wants to "relate" to people and act like she is sharing personal info--but I don't care about that stuff.  I used to hate when I worked with people at a workplace that would want to share about illnesses, etc.  Some things do not need to be elaborated.  

I can't seem to get into it either.  I keep it on and go out there once in a while and feel meh every time.  Plus I hate the intro to Drew's news.  Just send her to the desk to chat--I hate the intro to that so much.

Drew is a bit too manic for me but it might be nerves so she might settle in. I love her kitchen.

I do think someone probably asked her to do it.  Just like they asked Kelly. 

I think they're always on the hunt for likable people (it seems to be women, mostly) to be the next Ellen just like they probably sought out Ellen to be the next Rosie. 

But as to whether or there were people at home writing to the producers begging for a Drew show....probably not.   I like Drew but I always think she comes off as a bit frenetic in interviews which I would not think would make for a good talk show host.  It's hard enough for people who are experienced interviewers (Katie Couric and Meredith Viera) to pull off.

Ugh. Awful. Why is she yelling all the time? Just like Kelly Clarkson without the y'all. Too forced. Maybe she will calm down in the next few weeks. She seems genuinely likable though. 

Oh and her clothes. She is still young. Stop dressing like my Nanna. 😕
