My wife and I were loyal AM Joy viewers. Loved her on the weekends. Couldn't get enough of her. Also loved her when she filled in at prime time for other hosts.
Her new ReidOut show is unwatchable. Simple as that.
She is giddy, goofy, giggly, and at a time when a lot of our news is pretty serious.Some people have made comparisons to Chris Matthew. I yearn for the return of Chris Matthews. Yes, he used to talk fast and interrupt interviewees when they were avoiding the question or spouting mistruths. But the difference was the level of gravitas. Chris would bore in on an issue in his relentless (hardball) , rapid-fire style. But he wasn't giggling his way through it. He was deadly serious. Other hosts on MSNBC often inject humorous sarcasm in their narratives. But it's not this annoying clown show. C'mon, Joy. You're better (much better) than this.

Decades long MSNBC devotee, but I cannot bear to watch her for more than a few minutes before I have to change the channel because she is so divisive - which is the last thing we need right now! She unnecessarily and frequently inserts race on multiple subjects, for instance "Black women have Kamala's back". Why??? Why imply that white women (or Latin or Asian) or men DO NOT have our VP elect's back? It makes me sick to my stomach because she does it so often and she is furthering the divide at a time when we need unifying. Also she acts as if she speaks for the entire black culture - she does not. And finally stop interrupting people who have valuable points of view - especially Nicolle and Rachel. Btw, love Ali Velshi, Tiffany, Craig, Jonathon.

I agree with all that you have written.

OH MY GOODNESS, its so refreshing to know my parents and I aren't the only ones who have become annoyed with Joy Reid's rhetoric and insanely fast paced presentations.
I agree with ALL of the previous comments about her pacing and overt "Black" issues [as a twice degreed black woman myself] as well. In my opinion, she is ruining Kamala Harris' opportunity to do her job as our new VP-elect by trying to "sell" her as the President-elect. Enough, Joy...please allow this woman to have her time in the position she's assuming...she will have her time to run for the higher office in due time (should she choose to). And, not to be picky, but it would be nice to see some consistency and balance in Joy Reid's appearance...solid colors over prints against an already distracting background.
I'm trying to hang in there with The ReidOut after a long day at work, but lately I switch to CNN or HGTV for relief from Joy's snippy comments, fast paced stories, biased commentary, and inability to allow her guests to speak without her "leading Q&A's". Remember, Mrs. Reid, you are speaking to a diverse population of viewers who wish to hear unity more division.

She needs to book some opposing views and debate their point of view. Also, stop the fast-talking, silly laughing.

Thank you and Tiffany and Johnathan I think are bad choices just because they are does not mean they are good

What is happening to Joy. What use to be a fine tuned presentation on the weekends has become a disjointed, poorly produced caricature of good journalistic tv. Fast talking with too many derailments, hee heeing with guest inappropriately and far too many opinions on her part rather than allowing guest to state their own opinions....do they all have to agree with you Joy all the time? I am a fan trying to hang in there. I'm hoping much of what I'm seeing is due to home production due to Covid. If things dont improve however I will be moving on. Friday's 12/4 show gave me hope as I saw gleamers of the old Joy. I know she is still there...please find her.

I totally agree

I enjoy Joy Reid, but I would even more if she would slow down, allow guests time to answer, and stop being so negative towards reporting and Trump. Although I agree with her position in Trump, it is tiring hearing her bad him the whole time. There is more worthy news.

I thought I was the only one.... I can only take her in bits ....I wish they would bring Kieth Oberman back

Had a very long day today... got home from work and fell asleep on the sofa watching the last few minutes of Nicole Wallace‘s program. Such a fan of her and Deadline Whitehouse! Suddenly I woke up to what I thought was somebody having some sort of hysterical breakdown. Oh my god never again never! It was Joy Reid loud, babbling and interrupting. I stayed with her for about 10 minutes and couldn’t tolerate it another second. She was talking too fast! She was talking over her guest! She was interrupting her guest! I used to watch Hardball with Chris Matthews and got the same kind of reaction with him. I enjoy watching MSNBC at different times of the day and evening depending on my schedule but I already know after just these few minutes that I will never again watch Joy Reid. She “doesn’t get a second chance to make a first impression”.

I read all the comments regarding Joy Reid’s new show. Personally speaking I look forward to watching her. While yes she does move quickly through her show, that doesn’t make her unwatchable. She is the first black woman to host a prime time network news show and I applaud MSNBC for giving her a shot. Despite some of the disparaging comments made about her, she is highly intelligent and is spot on with the issues she discusses. I don’t see her as a race baiter. And while yes these are some very serious times, I don’t have a problem with her injecting some humor into her show. Many Americans are uncomfortable when anyone talks about racial issues as she does. America is very divided along racial lines and it’s time that the country faces up to that fact.

So relived that others feel the same as me. I love MSNBC, but I just cannot tolerate Joy Reed. I did not mind her on AM Joy, but now - not at all. I have to turn to CNN and then go back to Chris Hayes. She even manages to spoil coverage for major events with Rachael Nicole and Brian.
Kermit WoodenDec 22, 2020 00:24 GMT
I agree with Lorelai. Please have Joy slow down and let her guests speak especially to allow them to finish a sentence. I am a long time MSNBC viewer but I more now than often turn her off when she starts to get excited and takes over the entire convesation. Why have guests on ???
Also, I am a person of color and I would like to see a bit more balance on conversations not only about race. I agree on the hard times we are ecperiencing in being black ....but balance would be a bit more healing and not so one sided and devisive. This is my second message over the last couple of months...I would like to continue watching without turning of MSNBC for an hour until All in With Chris Hayes and Rachel come on.
Barbara A RowletteDec 22, 2020 00:57 GMT
I agree with what you have written. I
am now turning the TV off until Chris Hayes comes on.
