Serious question.. we have all been busy in here saying what is not good.. I'm looking for some talk on what can make it right?
In the spirit of your thread I will add my two cents. With the varied audience that coast has and the varied topics I think it may be time to kill the idea of one host. When it was Bells baby, he was able to make it what he wanted, now it's a train wreck (sorry MV; don't mean to tie in what coast has become with what you produce...)
Cut down Noory to once every two weeks. He can interveiw every quack he can find every second Tuesday (and I can know to tune out.) Knapp gets his twice a month, and Ian his. Knapp can restrict his show to the topics that interest him and Ian can do the same. Give Wells his show, and Simone his to do the topics that actually interest them so that they are not interviewing guests on topics they have no knowledge of nor any wish to learn about. After that, bring in a few more regular hosts (a few on paranormal topics to see how it would fly with today coast audience.)
Possibly Somebody like Kaku would even do a couple shows a month so that we could have a scientist interviewing scientists (don't worry, Noory can keep Hoagland as his "science" adviser every second Tuesday.)
This would allow Coast to become a show that would broaden horizons. It is unfair to expect Noory to interview a serious scientist, and unfair to expect Knapp to interview a doctor of quackery. Let each host stick to their interests and strengths; give them each a couple of weeks to read the book or do the research and each can be prepared, fresh and informed.
We all know that it will never happen. We will have Noory for the foreseeable future followed by another complete failure 5 nights a week.
