I too think that Tom's balance will be very hard to replace. He is admirably knowledgeable about...well...everything. Has a great ability to think analytically and articulate those thoughts--even as a "devil's advocate" if necessary. He has brought some serious nerd-cred to this show. And no one has mastered the segway like he has. As like-able and capable as the other hosts are, I'm not sure any can be an adequate replacement for him. But let's be optimistic.
While I'm incredibly disappointed he's leaving, does anyone have any thoughts on who might replace Tom?
I like Molly, but Tom provides a perfect balance. I'm not sure any of the current CNET personalities is even close to an adequate replacement. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Any suggestions in or out of the CNET world? The closest I would consider is Rafe.
Anyhow, best wishes to Tom, he might actually make me want to check out TWiT again!
