Default Your Favorite Talk Show?

Well, they gave George Lopez the boot, Oprah has left the building, Regis is leaving, and, Conan is circling the drain. Dave, Ellen,Jay,Jimmy & Jimmy, Craig, hangin in there..who else....So, who or what is your favorite talk show.... day or night.

I watch The View, LKG & Hoda,and for a minute and a half, I watched, The Talk, which I think has the worst mix of hosts in the history of tv.. If Sharon Osbourne puts her stanky feet up close to another guest, she should be shot,

I guess the View is my fave, but, I sure wish they would stop talking over one another,and I do wish Babs would retire. She constantly drops names, & says I was the first to interview_________fill in the blank..all the time, when she is not on the panel. I enjoy it more.

For fans of this show, I just read on Twitter, she finally married her BF, after 26 or so years!

I will miss Regis when he leaves,

I don't stay up to watch the late night shows anymore (if there are any?) and I'm probably the only man in history to watch, and enjoy "The Talk". I started watching it because it leads into "Lets Make a Deal", which I always enjoy. I can't stand "The View", and absolutely detest Whoope Goldberg. I agree with Trip that "Babs" is long overdue for retirement as well.

Rachael Ray, and Ellen DeGeneres. I like both of them. They seem like "real" people, if you know what I mean? I feel like I could "visit" them and be friends.

I do understand that this seems "weird", but thought I'd put in my two cents !

I am with Hez,
I love Ellen, she's smart and funny at the same time....she can also interview very well and seems to really enjoy all her guests, especially the audience.

Regis & Kelly, I was a big fan of the view but I don't know lately I haven't been in to it. I’ve watched the talk a few time and liked it.

My favorites are definitely Michael Savage and Neil Boortz. I am pure Libertarian so I have issues with some of the religious right but am definitely a small government laissez-faire Chicago trained economist.

Of course, I also like Mark Levin. I get confused with him so often that I like to keep up on what he is saying.

Since Oprah is no longer on, I would have to go with The View. To think that Barbara Walters is still on television; she will be eight-two in September!

I enjoy "The View" and I agree with Trip about talking over one another. I used to watch "Regis And Kelly" Until Regis' constant hollering got too obnoxious. Really enjoy "Good Morning America" but that is more news than talk show.

I like Craig Ferguson. I'll watch him a few nights a week.

I have watched a couple of episodes of The View. Admittedly it was quite a few years ago when Rosie was on and now I would rather have a colonoscopy than watch it.

I've seen a few episodes of "The Talk" and while it's less abrasive than "The View" there are just too many "hosts" and Julie Chen is a bad anchor.

I don't know why but I stopped watching the Tonight Show when Conan was ousted and haven't gone back though I like some of Jay's stuff like Headlines.

Betty will watch Ellen when she wakes up in the morning and it is ok. More "Feel Good" than substance but that can be a nice break from a bunch of people babbling about the affairs of the day.

I have to say that I am not sad that Oprah has gone her merry way. I congratulate her on going from nothing to a media powerhouse but I could never get into her show.

Take care,
Mike

Steve Allen hosted the original late night talk show and was better than anyone since. He was followed by Jack Parr and then Jonny Carson. things have gone downhill since those days..

For political annd entertainment talk, I prefer Michel Medved.
