I'm wondering if the show realized after they were taping....

 how bad the stuff we're seeing now was and that's why that guy was fired?   I have to say that right now, the show is really not capturing my interest and it seems like a lot of others aren't into the show either.  Since they are so far ahead in taping, they let the guy go right around the beginning of what we're seeing now I'm guessing.  Anyone have any thoughts on this?
