Today is National TV Talk Show Day



There have been some great TV Talk Shows hosts over the years. Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin, Oprah Winfrey, Phil Donahue, Sally Jesse Raphael, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Ellen DeGeneres, John Oliver, James Corden, Samantha Bee, Trevor Noah etc.

But let’s face it not everybody should host a Talk Show...Remember Magic Johnson’s talk show, 'The Magic Hour?' Or John McEnroe’s? Or Jeff Probst’s? Or Monique’s? Yeah those were horrible.

Whether it is a daytime or a late-night talk show, there is an elite bunch of people who have that thing--that 'je ne sais quoi'--- that makes us viewers tune in day after day.

In 1951, American radio and TV personality Joe Franklin was the host of the first TV talk show. NBC’s The Tonight Show has been running for 64 years it is the world’s longest running talk show.

According to the National Day Calendar, National TV Talk Show Host Day was created to celebrate Johnny Carson aka The King of Late Night Television’s birthday. Carson was the host of The Tonight Show for thirty years from1962 –1992.

So, let’s raise our remotes and celebrate the TV talk show and their hosts.

Here are some of great moments from Johnny Carson Show:
