I don't think Molly is like Bill O'Reilly. Maybe a little like Nancy Grace, but without the pompous attitude. Tom is very opinionated in a more low-key manner, but opinionated nonetheless. Maybe Phil Donahue? Jason is the quintessential Ed McMahon, of course. And Veronica reminds me most of Tyra Banks, but not for why you might think. Veronica is obviously considered attractive, but she's also a geek. Tyra knows she's attractive, but isn't afraid to get dirty or play down the glam and just be a regular "gal", without pretense. I admire that quality.
OK, Molly has been compared to Bill O'Reilly (BTW, I bet she LOVED that!), and in a recent conversation with a friend, I compared Tom to Johnny Carson in the sense that he is someone you come to think of as "this guy I hang out with for 30 minutes every day", in a kind of familiar and "regular guy" sort of way. Of course, much smarter and wittier than our usual buddies, but he hides it (as Johnny did) with that mid-western down-to-earth-ness.
That got me to wondering what TV talk show hosts, past or present, you think Tom, Molly and Jason (and even Veronica) resemble in one way or another?
