Good Morning America

Good Morning America simply tries too hard. Its hosts – Diane Sawyer & Robin Roberts are competent & skilled & its features as interesting as the competition. But, as it goes in the entertainment industry, whatever works is copied a million times. Most glaring is GMA’s use of an indoor audience to differentiate itself from The Today Show’s outdoor audience. Except the small indoor audience, standing as though it should be outside, is agonizingly out of place. To beat The Today Show, GMA simply needs to be itself, to look back into its own history when it regularly trounced Today in the ratings. GMA’s format flows much the way a newspaper might, with national and world news reports and interviews up front in the first hour, with lighter human interest and entertainment news following in the later hours.
