Is Larry King a good questioner or is he just overrated?

Larry King has always been praised for his "fantastic" questions. But he has asked many lame questions before like other day when he interviewed Jane Sarkin about TomKat baby photos. he asked "Was Katie Holmes a great mom?". Duh...

    He asks questions that an average person would ask, so people feel like these stars on his show are talking to them. That's why people like him.

    He seems to be more of a father figure and an Icon. He will be missed when he's gone.If he feels the need to retire he should say so. I rarely watch him with so many other choices on cable.Maybe he needs a side-kick to move things along more.

    Larry King is a brown-nosing "journalist" who soft-balls all his guests like he's an extension of their PR companies. Put him on a boat with Geraldo Rivera and push it off a cliff!

    LK is a waste of time. Never asked an original question, prides himself on never reading the book of an author he has on.

    I think they ask normal qns that we want to know, "like does Tom Cruise pee standing?"(wait, i dont think i want to know the answer to that) just that he have the power to do so. So overrated, anyone could take over his place. And so does that stupid guy from "the inside studio". LAMEEEEEEEE
