Sunday mornings in our house, Always used to include Sunday Morning with George Stephanopoulos, then Jake Tapper. We enjoyed both. Now we watch other things during that time slot.
We find Cristiane's demeanor offputting and her accent haughty. (What's wrong with giving work and salaries to American newscasters?) Do they want us to feel if newscasters speak in British or other accents that they're *smarter*? Newsflash to them. You're turning viewers off!
And by the way, do they read these boards? If they did, seems a change would have been made before now. Since they haven't, obviously they don't care what appeals to viewers or value feedback.
Ultimately what ABC does with their shows is their business. However when the ratings continue to diminish (or plummet) maybe somebody up in the top offices will have to admit that decision wasn't the brightest move.
And make a change.
