I swear I don't know what people see in George Knapp.
I see a couple of things in Knapp. First, he brings a journalistic attitude to his interviews, so he controls where the conversation goes, rather than doing a Noory and letting guests ramble on with only the occasional "amazing" or "incredible" inserted. More than once last night, Knapp interrupted the guests to say that he wanted to wait to discuss whatever they had mentioned later in the program (and then did so). If nothing else, it shows that he has actually prepared for the show. Also, he actually asks follow-up questions, a nice change from Simple George.
Even though Knapp is a professional TV journalist, I'm guessing there is a lot of difference between his TV work and hosting C2C. I think if he hosted C2C full time, he would be every bit as good as Art Bell was.
It's also a shame he seems to be stuck most of the time in the UFO ghetto. His non-UFO shows are much better.
