I've only seen 2 so far, but they've been a bunch of fun and a nice breath of fresh air given all the other news that had been going on.

It's got just the right amount of self-deprecation and snark to cut through what potentially could be sappy; Krasinski pulls that off well.

I'd argue that we should all be very grateful most bulletins are dominated by bad news. Look at it this way:

News is, by definition, something outside the norm - hence the old saying that "Dog bites man" is not news, but "Man bites dog" definitely is. If the news was always full of feelgood stories about people being kind to each another, that would suggest that such behaviour was unusual enough to merit being reported. It follows that the society producing that news programme must be one where the vast majority of people never even considered helping anyone else - and who wants to live in a society like that?

I was avoiding these for some reason but then I read these comments.
I have watched two and like them quite a lot!

I did not at all expect the prom segment to make me tear up.
