Why I don't watch "Meet the Press"

Having some downtime, I downloaded the MTP transcript for December 3, 2017 and did a quick word count analysis.  In summary,  the Guests, do 30% of the talking (excluding commercials and video) and Chuck Todd and "The Panel" do 70%!  What a waste of time to watch it. Details as follows:

Chuck Todd No. Words %
Opening Remarks            900
Questions/Guest Intro        1,500
Total Chuck Todd         2,400 34%
Guest Answer

Senator Feinstein             700
Cory Lewandowski             800
Total Guest        2,100 30%
Panel Discussion        2,500 36%
Grand Total        7,000
