Talk shows are one of the oldest genres in the history of television. From Tonight Show king Johnny Carson to the women of The View, it doesn’t look like the talk show is ending anytime soon either. But whose voice do you trust? Whose interview style is best?
We want to know who you think is the best talk show host on TV. Is it Kelly Ripa? Conan O’Brien? Ellen DeGeneres? Past or present, tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
What do you think? Do you watch a lot of talk shows? Who do you think is the best host ever?
Harry is Great! Always love Ellen. Stopped watching Kelly. I miss seeing Regis and Micheal. I was hoping when Regis retired he would guest appear on show. Was sad this didn’t happen. Would love to see Regis again. He cracks me up!
whoppi is good she tells it straight and and keeps things rolling. i have never seen joy moderate her show but she is funny. i’d guess she is a little better than whoppi. people like joy, cavett, and carson who are truly witty make the best hosts.
merv griffin was not witty but a relaabed conversationalist as was dina shore both had social skills and generally did not act like idiots. of the past show hosts i’d say carson was the best. how arsenio hall and lettermen got where they did i haven’t a clue
Carson all the way!
