:( I'll miss him even though some of those questions he asked were dumb.

Some? A monkey could have done his job.

I'm glad he's stepping aside (whatever that means, it sounds like he leaves the door cracked open in case he changes his mind) although stepping down would be preferred. We don't need such a robotic, shallow, simplistic and lazy excuse of a "journalism".

I like how he treated people as if they had never been interviewed before.

Was he ever a good interviewer? He seems to have always asked the most simple, obvious questions whether he was interviewing President Obama, President Bush, or Paris Hilton.

A couple of times I don't think he knew who the guests were or why they were there.

I like the style of the show but not really Larry himself. But he has had a great career and good luck to him.

I saw a clip from last night's show and Larry told guest Bill Maher that he'd like to see Ryan Seacrest take over. I suppose Ryan can do the celebrity/lighter subjects, but politicians? In a crisis?

Ryan's been lobbying for the job for a while now. There also was a time LK wanted John Roberts (CNN anchor) to replace him.

Larry King has said that he tries to ask the questions that reflect what the "average viewer" wants to know.
He's never been a "serious" interviewer, even when talking with important world figures.
His approach is more conversational, and he's never pretended otherwise.

Ryan has 234577854 jobs already. I hope someone else gets it I'm tired of seeing him everywhere.

I don't think Ryan is particularly good at the jobs he already has. Why have him take over a show that isn't limited to entertainment interviews? Makes no sense.

Is he going to let the baseball coach take his place? :P

I remember when he had a weekly column in USA TODAY's Life section. No interesting information whatsoever in those columns. Plus, half of the sentences contained ellipses ( ... ). He couldn't put a complete sentence together to save his life. And back in the 1980s, the accompanying photo of him in the column was of him holding a cigarette. More :yikes: than :smokin:

The Larry King weekly column that used to appear in the Life Section of the USA Today was one of the most disposable piece of piffle ever set in ink. It was relentlessly positive and nothing more than a stroke forum for Larry to earn free dinners from his celebrity friends. That an editor for the USA Today thought this was a reasonable use of valuable editorial space in a national newspaper speaks volumes as to why newspapers are in huge financial trouble.

All that aside, I never failed to read it. :shuffle:
