I Cannot Believe I Used to Find Mo Rocca Annoying. What Happened?

Was a time that I could not tolerate Mo Rocca. Seriously. I thought he was so incredibly annoying. Then something happened. While channel surfing, I started to watch "My Grandmother's Ravioli". Mo Rocca suddenly became less annoying and charming!!! How could I have been so judgemental.
Gotta say, I'm now hooked on this show. I love it. I love the way he interacts with the older moms--it's really sweet.
Makes me wish I was a grannie! Glad there is another season, too. When I'm wrong, I'm wrong, I misjudged. He isn't annoying!

    1. He definitely annoys me, but then I haven't been watching that particular program.


        Rocca being interviewed on Here & Now (public radio) last October. Very engaging.

        1. He annoyed me on that Foodography show but otherwise I enjoy him. The main difference would be that Foodography was scripted and his other appearances (Wait Wait, Iron Chef America, Ravioli) are more off-the-cuff.

          1. I agree. We had this discussion earlier this year - and seems a lot of folks feel the same way.


            I also find him funny when he's a panelist on "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me."
