In order to settle the behind-the-scenes pronunciation debate, George asked the viewers to help them out. He asked the viewers to help them via tweets & specifically to tag Michael and flood his Twitter account with the correct answer.

  1. I think George should stay as host with Robin Robert’s, Michael is does seem to be the right fit in your team , I quit watching because of your other host.(Michael )

  2. Nancy, your remark makes no sense. Please check spelling and punctuation. That being said; all three hosts are good but Michael and Robin have much more personality than George.
