TALK SOUP: GOLFWEEK's Martin Kaufmann noted Golf Channel last week relaunched "Morning Drive" with some cast additions and "a new, vastly improved studio." Kaufmann: "When the men of 'The View' -- er, 'Morning Drive' -- are seated in their comfy chairs, it would be nice to think they're just four buddies swapping stories and opinions. But it often seems so scripted." The show is "so structured that it sometimes feels as though they're speaking their lines." A little more spontaneity "would be nice." While there is a "big cast, there's no compelling voice who will make viewers put down the morning paper to listen." Still, the "de facto star is the voluble Gary Williams, who seems to be likable, diligent and well-prepared" (GOLFWEEK.com, 2/12).
