I've been a fan of Meredith ever since her View days (back when that show actually worth watching without the backstage Real Housewives media antics). She's always been smart, able to see both sides of an issue and is also hilarious with her occasionally raunchy comments. I was excited when her show was announced, but also worried because Meredith works best as a moderator IMO and I wasn't sure that she could pull off doing a show by herself. Truth be told, I didn't watch the show a lot in its first season unless there was a guest I was interested in. Meredith was her usual bright, fun self, but it was pretty clear that she was having a hard time figuring out what the show's angle was and not having other people to banter and discuss with. Her show wasn't as boring as Katie Couric's, but it wasn't must see TV for me. Then season 2 rolled around.
The first improvement was doing away with the solo hosting and adding a panel. I wasn't too crazy about Yamaneika (?) Saunders since she was contrary and openly rude at times, but I liked the other co-hosts. Meredith was back where she belonged as moderator and it took me back to the good ole View days. Unfortunately just when the show was finding itself, NBC nixed it. It's a shame that a show that didn't purposely court controversy for media attention got the shaft, but I guess people prefer trash.... like The View.
