Maybe. Why else would that prized demographic - the 18 to 49 - not be embracing his show on MSNBC. According to the media, what Farrow represents, including his persona, is what geezers like. He's coming across as the kind of person our parents, Catholic school nuns and cop on the urban beat loved. Here is an analysis of his odd aura by conservative media outlet National Review Online. Farrow and his mom Mia are liberals.
Perhaps Farrow is simply too clean cut, too highly educated and too used to hanging with VIP adults to transmit a youthful animal spirit. To me, a Baby Boomer, he's the controlled presence I bumped into at Buddhist temples. That's when I was learning mindfulness. From the get-go I didn't have high hopes for the success of his show. There was no energy. Worse, it seemed to be inward-looking. It was more about Ronan than about the guests or the audience. My bet is that MSNBC pulls the plug and gives Farrow a role in special projects.
