Frank Sinatra Junior’s Hot New MSNBC Show


  reports:  The ideal viewer for Ronan Farrow Daily, the brand-new show from the highly accomplished 26-year-old son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen (or Frank Sinatra?), is younger than its host and maybe stoned or at least hung-over on a dorm-room couch. That’s both because it’s on weekdays at 1 p.m., when most adults are busy, and by design: Today’s debut was aimed squarely at millennials in topic — weed, Lena Dunham, student debt — and form, with segments built around Twitter and holding a sign while taking a selfie. Here are the highs and lows, because we’re allowed to watch TV in the middle of the afternoon.

Amount of Time Farrow Spent Introducing Himself: 45 seconds

“Hello and welcome to Ronan Farrow Daily!” said the very handsome and charismatic new host. “I’m Ronan Farrow — I’ll be here daily.”

Time Until Farrow Made a Joke About Being Young: 20 seconds (“I grew up watching the greats of TV news: Murrow, Cronkite, Colbert.”)

Time Until Farrow Made a Joke About Being a Rookie: 31 seconds (“I’m also new to this. What’s going on here? Which camera do I look at? Who knows! But we’ll figure it out together.”)

Segment Topics, in Descending Order of Millennial-ness:

1. Dumpster diving for legal weed
2. Lena Dunham’s feminism
3. The student debt crisis
4. Minimum wage hikes
5. Kansas’s anti-gay and pro-spanking bills
6. Chuck Hagel announces military cuts
7. Obama hosts governors

Guests, in Descending Order of Millennial appeal:

1. The show’s production assistant Eric (“Thank you for taking me out of the dark control room,” he said.)
2. MSNBC host Alex Wagner
3. David Axelrod
4 (tied). Former RNC head Michael Steele, former Defense Secretary Bill Cohen, former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, Delaware Governor Jack Markel
