|Nancy O'Dell replaced Mary Hart on ET in May 2011|
In May 2011, Mary Hart left the show and Nancy O'Dell took over as the full-time co-anchor with Mark Steines. Samantha Harris and Chris Jacobs file reports and also take turns at the anchor desk.
Is it just me or does it seem like the entire staff is yelling at you?
Entertainment Tonight (ET) has a spitfire pace to its reporting. Stories and teasers are blasted at the audience, back-to-back in mere micro-seconds. It seems like most of the show is made up of teasers.

What? One teaser after another and no real stories. Then, the stories you want to see are teased throughout the show and at the end they're coming up tomorrow.
And why do they have to yell so much? I'm right here sitting in front of the damn TV. I have a volume control, if I can't hear you, I turn it up. Maybe it makes the show more exciting.
