    My first impression is that she’s not interested in attracting a male audience at all. Even Oprah, The View and The Talk have learned that there’s a fairly sizable male audience in the daytime (shift-workers, out of work, work-at-home, retired and others). Today’s show was about women’s relationships, women’s weight, organizing women’s closet.

    I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that. I’m just saying I won’t be checking out her show again. Good luck to her, though.
