I'm not a fan of daytime TV. I don't watch "morning shows," game shows, soap operas, court shows, or any of the daytime talk shows like Oprah, or Ellen. But there is one show that I watch without fail.
I've already written about what a big fan I am of Bonnie Hunt. Most mornings, I do get to watch her show. It airs here in Pensacola on Fox at 9:00 am (check your local listings). Y'all know how much I love to laugh, and Bonnie does the job. I think she is just great.
Well-known TV critic, Roger Ebert thinks so too. He calls Bonnie, "...funny, direct, down-to-earth, and has real feelings." (Ebert's blog article is linked below. It's worth reading.)
Don't believe me or Roger? Check out this appearance Bonnie did on The Late Show with David Letterman in which she is talking about the the movie, "Cars," (which she was in). See if you can keep from laughing at a hilarious story she tells about her trip to the premier.
Bonnie Hunt is downright likeable. Truth be told, she's a lot like my three sisters - which is no surprise since both Bonnie and I come from large Catholic families. She is warm and funny and self-deprecating, and extremely quick with the ad-libs and one-liners. She seems like a genuinely funny person, and she sure cracks me up. And when she talks to her guests, she does seem to really care about what they have to say, not merely in how she's going to set up the next joke.
I spend an hour watching the Bonnie Hunt Show and I'm always in a better mood afterward. It's a great way to start off my day. I hope the show runs forever.
