It’s less of an interview and more like a speech or monologue

Tucker’s job is to stare with rapt attention as the guest filibusters or rambles, whilst not showing the slightest hint of disinterest or boredom, such as by averting his eyes too much, yawning etc. Rogan does this too, by having to appear interested. Occasionally Tucker interjects with a question or a request for clarification, but basically he plays a the role of the listener as to not disrespect his guest, much like a therapist. It shows how being a good listener is an underrated and valuable skill.
