George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America: The reviews are in

"Smooth" was the word of choice among TV critics trying to characterize the debut performance of George Stephanopoulos as co-host of Good Morning America.

"George Stephanopoulos slid over into Diane Sawyer's co-host seat . . . so smoothly Monday that the most noticeable changes were the hair, jacket and jewelry," wrote David Hinckley in the New York Daily News. "Stephanopoulos seemed pretty smooth and comfortable in his own right for his first day," agreed The Baltimore Sun's David Zurawik. "Stephanopoulos moved smoothly if not memorably into the anchor chair," opined Tom Shales in The Washington Post.
