Overall, the TV show is based on a good concept (trying to predict future headlines), and I’-m sure it will be a success in the end.
However, one big mistake Max is doing is to have female journalists. Sorry to say that, but if you are in the business of selling subjective predictions, you need to have credible predictors, with loud voice, charisma, and definitive attitude. Most women in journalism don’-t display those qualities.
Max, fire the journalists and put real pundits on your TV show.
