I've caught snippets of a few Noory episodes recently. I won't say he's "getting better" because I think he's hopelessly...hopeless. However, I WILL say that I think Noory is making an effort to up his game, be a bit more on it and less, well, Nooryish. I'm not saying he's succeeding. But I think he knows something's up, something we don't know yet, and he's trying to bolster himself and his status/position/job in some sort of pre-emptive fashion. So the upshot might be that we'll be getting Noory "at his best" rather than Noory "at his worst". Which, granted, aren't that far apart. And it probably won't last long anyway. But I've definitely heard a difference, however minimal, and that's what I think the cause is.
