Juliet Huddy in New York Times

Do any of you all see the big feature that the New York Times wrote yesterday on The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet?

A few excerpts:
He’s smarmy. She’s contrived. He leers at girls like an old stage ham. She talks about freezing her eggs and getting her breasts done. Together they’re Mike Jerrick and Juliet Huddy, Fox’s new morning pair, who use their unholy chemistry to pervert the breakfast hour on “The Morning Show With Mike and Juliet.” We owe these two a warm, warm welcome. [...]

So what is the relationship Mr. Jerrick and Ms. Huddy are performing? I argue this: They are playing an older man who, because he loves the ladies too much or not enough, shuns long-term relationships, and an attractive over-30 woman who has pursued her career rather than marrying and regrets it.

This is a kind of marvelous city duo — and a nice breakthrough for morning shows. No giggly hot mom like Kelly Ripa; no model of rectitude and self-sacrifice like Ms. Vieira. And no good old Reege. Or good young Matt.

Instead they’re a little sleazy, Mike and Juliet. And a little lonely. Morning shows have long been seen as having two audiences: busy, important people on their way to work, who want to know news, traffic and weather, and stay-at-home mothers and housewives, who like mellower segments about relationships and household economy.
I encourage you to read the whole article, which is actually a great review for the show.
Virginia Heffernan really captures something about this duo - that they have so much more to offer then Regis/Kelly and Meredith/Matt. They are imperfect, obsessed with the craziness of life (ie: sex and relationships) and are just like the rest of us.

I hope this endorsement brings more viewers in - to find out what fans of the show already know - Juliet is great.

I absolutely love the M & J show. Juliet is beautiful, smart, witty, and very down to earth. Mike is funny, realistic, witty, and loves messing with Juliet's mind.

The View will surely go out of business with competition like Juliet and Mike.
