Broadcast journalist Phil Latzman echoed what a lot of people have been saying about Splash:
I really want to compete in the new ABC show "Splash". It's the stupidest and smartest show on TV.— Phil Latzman (@PhilLatzman) April 17, 2013
Bring Louis back for show if you must, #Splash, but to score him 7.5 for a non-dive is unfair to the better divers. Totally bogus.— Howard Cohen (@HowardCohen) April 17, 2013
Cohen, who is also a former competitive swimmer, was impressed with Drake & Josh star Drake Bell on Tuesday:
Drake Bell's the real diver on #Splash. Legs came apart on entry but handstand 10m dive was otherwise quite fine. Controlled.— Howard Cohen (@HowardCohen) April 17, 2013
