Until unless sense of discipline and decency is there in such group discussions nothing fruiful will emerge and these will be futile exercises on the stage or in front of the public seeing it on TV.
If you remember we had debate competition in our school time and the participant was asked to speak for say 5-10 minutes and there was silence in the auditoriun. When every one has completed their turn then only judges ir moderators came into picture. That type of discipline is required for noiseless and fightless panel discussions.
Knowledge is power.
Many times the discussion will go on side track and the moderator can't do anything except abruptly stopping the discussion.
Why to talk about TV shows? We are all seeing on TV the assembly proceedings and Parliament proceedings. Do you think some thing useful is going on there.
In a correct debate people should hear the point of the other person. If he thinks that is differing he should speak on that when his time comes. But it will never happen. Another problem is all channels are having their own political affiliations. So they drive the speakers to round up the debate to their affiliations.
Unless some discipline has been brought in, all these discussion are only for time pass.
Some of them talk more just by habit and not with any selfish intentions. They just do not know when and where to stop. But there are others who do so with selfish intention. Such persons consciously grab and usurp every opportunity for themselves and do not allow others to make use of the opportunity. They only want to shine always.They would like others to be in their shadow only.But people soon come to be aware of this and just escape from them.
Don't sweat the small stuff and it's all small stuff.
Boy 1: My mother is genius, She will talk for one hour on a topic given without any preparation
Boy 2: My mother is more genius as she can speak for one hour continuously without any topic
