I listened with increasing frustration to the interview with Jon Hotchkiss of "This vs That." Jon: Please stop talking. Stop. Talking. Stop.
Between Hotchkiss unable to shut up and Derek quietly letting him rant on (with occasional "Very cool" interjections), I wanted to pound my head against a telephone pole. (Fortunately, my patient dog kept me from injuring myself by peeing on the pole.)
Ironically, Hotchkiss's new show "This vs That" sounds very interesting. Of course Derek ("Cool, very cool") allowed 80% of the show to pass by before we found that "T v T" is an Internet subscription show. Still, at $5-10, it seemed not outrageous.
But Hotchkiss WOULDN'T SHUT UP.
I realize he's an accomplished, talented TV/media producer and I imagine a certain amount of hyperbole ("We did a big experiment, big, I tell you!") is perhaps to be expected, but didn't his handlers ever take him aside and whisper, "Hey Jon, when you've made your point, JUST SHUT THE **** UP.")
One clue that you're droning on is when you repeatedly say "Again, as I said..."
Again, I say, Hotchkiss: put a muzzle on it when you've made your point.
