'Let's Make A Deal' of Monty Hall fame was fun to watch, as it was a new game show concept at the time (random contestants & pure luck making the winners), allowing us to study human nature at its finest (or worst?). The new show is updated to suit modern times (mostly higher-priced prizes), but the 'edge' is gone. Monty Hall had charisma, and despite his surrounding players, a sense of dignity. Billy Bush, the new host, stands there like a wet rag on a stick. Seemingly bored, and definitely UNexcited, he gives the viewer the sense that he'd rather be anywhere but there, or that he lost a bet with the other game show hosts, so he got stuck with this gig. The jazz, the glitz, the overall FUN of the original seems lacking here. The only thing saving the show is the extent to which people will dress up to take a wild chance at being one of the 20 or so chosen out of a studio audience of hundreds, to MAYBE win something.
