Stephanie Ruhle, the queen of melodrama and poor interviewing techniques, continues to sink the once-vaulted Eleventh Hour news program. Watching her theatrics unfold and while she interjects (polite way of saying "loudly interrupts") herself into her guests commentary makes me wonder what's on Comedy Central at that time of night. She has no real grasp of the facts, but attempts to present the news in a way that will likely get her an Emmy for Best Performance by an Actress for News Presentation. When she utters her sophomoric catchphrase "Let's get smarter", I wonder if she's addressing the audience.
And let's be honest: there's no real chemistry between her and the other hosts. I feel so sorry for Mr. O'Donnell when he says at the end of his program "11th Hour with Stephanie Ruhle starts now", with an anguished look on his face that expresses quite the opposite: "11th Hour with Stephanie Ruhle stops now...if only!"
Please replace her ASAP. The ratings for her show are terrible, and there are many on your news staff that could do a much better job!
We all know and remember Brian Williams, who admittedly is irreplaceable. But, Ms. Ruhle, you aren't Brian Williams, not even close.

Finally, on point critiques of this horrible host of what used to be a good show. Retire Stephanie Ruhle.

She presents as VERY unlikable and unprofessional. It's embarrassing (for the network) to witness her put down guests with the constant need for snark, and I can imagine her rehearsing in front of a mirror to get the glasses and pen and sneer just so. I don't want to have to think about who is delivering the news beyond an impression as to whether or not they are generally trustworthy and have good judgment (she doesn't). With Ruhle all I can think about is her and I imagine that means she's met her goal - just not in the way she would want it.

That's just how she wants it. About her. And for you to know it's about her.

Everyone’s thoughts are mine exactly. Let’s start off with the fact that she looks a mess! Hair is unattractive and she needs makeup. She’s very grating and comes off as a very tough and aggressive person. She is constantly interrupting and just gives off an annoying presence. With all the talented people out there she is a has been hag. (And i’m over 70!) She appears nasty with her sarcastic faces. Pay her off and get rid of her.

She devotes 30 minutes a night to Trump instead of inflation and families hurting to pay bills and buy food. She’ll be out in a year.

In case you haven’t noticed, so does everyone else on this network. Steph isn’t uniquely anti-Trump.

The news isn't supposed to be theatrical -- Stephanie Ruhle is a horrible fit for this program. Please demote her to Squawk Box on CNBC and have her raspy irritating confrontational voice pollute that program instead.

Stephanie is awesome. I think there are times when her style overwhelms her guests when her jokes fall flat, BUT I think she's aware of it and self corrects. She's one of my faves. Not afraid to show her intelligence and/or emotion appropriately.

Stephanie is FAR too loose and sophomoric to be hosting such an important news program. I refuse to believe this is the best MSNBC could do to fill Brian Williams' former chair. The other day she complained about a virus committing to her more than her past boyfriends... what the F? This show used to be an enlightening version of news, injected with real insight and thought-provoking discussions on the part of the host and panelists. Now, rather than allowing the Pulitzer prize winners speak, Stephanie makes stupid faces the entire time, interjects her opinion inappropriately and throws them off five words into a thought, and perhaps MOST irritating she seems to be searching for faux-drama instead of being a journalist. She's essentially turned the 11th Hour into a TMZ-style reporting of the network's top news stories. I also detest that she absolutely must get the last word AFTER the speakers are done, right before a commercial. It reeks of "this is my show now"... a stark contrast to the humble and selfless style of reporting of yesteryear. Sigh.

I. can't stand the eyeglasses in the mouth with semi pouty smirk. She is a financial analyst not a news person. There must be somebody who can do this. And why for us news junkies is there no news after 1AM on weekends..no news? Just Datelines?

I've actually been wondering that myself -- it's bizarre that MSNBC doesn't have their own version of "CNN Newsroom" on during late nights/weekends. I'm fine with all of the news/opinion programs (though some of the MSNBC anchors need to go obviously <coughs a virus on Stephanie>), but it'd be nice if there was also a non-partisan hard news recap as well. Richard Lui shows up during the day for a brief minute during Alex/Yasmin/Alicia/Ayman's broadcasts, and that's about all we get -- not nearly enough!

Poor Stephanie, So misplaced and out of place. Painful to watch and always with errors that just get ignored. She seems like she wants the notoriety and sure the money isn’t too bad but doesn’t fit in the lineup or time slot. Extremely annoying and often wish Brian Williams was back. I keep trying to give her a chance until she flashes tha quirky smirk and acts bizarre. Then off I go. So sad

This evening during the A-block Stephanie as per her usual arrogance introduced the panelists with "Let's get smarter!". I got dumber. Don't you miss Brian introducing the guests and paying his respect for their time BEFORE pitching questions to them, with a "good evening and welcome to you all"? I know I do.
After we got smarter, during the B-block she introduced the Jonathan Capehart and Stuart Stevens segment with "Let's get scared".
Turned it off immediately. I despise MSNBC for not backing up the Brinks truck to Brian.

I couldn't agree more.
