Leo Laporte and TechTV part ways …

I’m sure most people have never heard of Leo Laporte, and of those that have probably don’t care, but I was saddened to see even the reduced air time of the former Screensavers and Call For Help host come to a complete end due to a bit of corporate greed.

Leo’s blog entry.

Personally, after having The Screensavers in my TiVo’s season pass list for a long time, I’m considering removing it simply because while I still like remaining host Patrick Norton, he seems so out of place with the now all twenty-something cast. I’ve never warmed to Kevin Rose, especially in light of the network’s continual push of his “dark tipper” persona, and frankly am getting a wee bit tired of the “cutesy” on-air bits between him and his girlfriend.
