  1. When I see a story about Right This Minute I have to stop and comment because it’s the cheapest looking show I’ve ever seen on TV. The talent is … well, there is no talent there. The clips are the same one’s you see on GMA in the morning. It’s insulting to a TV audience to put this in front of them.
