Top 10 Television Talk Shows

The Top Ten

1 The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Ellen's sense of humour is just perfect for me. Watching her show makes me happy!

Ellen is HILARIOUS! She does fun stuff as well as the usual questions:P I LOVE HER! :P:P:P

Ellen is so much casual, she really connects with her guests, she listens to them! She's not like any other talk show hosters.

Every show that Ellen does is one more show I look forward to seeing how something she takes and make it so funny, just makes my day, even when someone is sad or down, just turn on Ellen's show and you'll be laughing even when you think you can't.
Ellen is a beautiful person inside out and it shows when their is something that touches her with one of the stories.
She is also gifted and beautiful, and a hard working person.
I also love when she sends others out to peoples houses and surprises them, I look so forward to that one day, Everyone says I have a better chance of winning the lottery, but I look at it this way, If its meant to be it will be, and if not I love seeing what she does for others, so even if I can dream that's good enough for me.

2 Late Night with Conan O'Brien

Conan is an extremely talented individual, he has really good writers, and was a writer for the simpsons for 4 years. My favourite talk show host by far, the guy can really jam at guitar. Plus andy is probably the best and wittiest side kick. Again, everything he does reflect his hard work, he made 'Conan' work on tbs after the whole late night fiasco, and is probably the most patient and content Talk show host. His shows are always hilarious.

Every episode of Conan is different and hilarious from the starting title. Conan always has his genius ways of kicking off the show with the ridiculous news of this country and making it funny. He also has really funny skits and unpredictable interviews. And don't forget the worlds best co-host the incredibly witty Andy Rictor. His endings are great with either new bands or starting comedians but it is amazing of him to give those young stars a chance to shine like he has.

Yo. Conan is a comedic genius. To me, his always the best and funniest talk show host.

No only is conan funny, he's an awesome guy with an awesome personality! He even has his own blimp, that should make him number 1 straight away!

3 The Graham Norton Show

Most talk shows are full of fluff: 10 min. Monologue, 2 min. Introductions and it all seems rehearsed and predictable. "Graham" is full from start to finish with anecdotal conversation and spontaneity one can't experience on any other show of its kind.

It's nice to see your favorite stars interacting with each other. Where else can you get that chemistry? And Graham's jokes are so organic and he talks with so much energy.

The guests are much more relaxed on his show and they interact with each other, making them much funnier than other talk shows.

This show is unique, it always has the best guests and it's so relaxed. Always hilarious and celebs seem to be more down to earth and comfortable. Graham doesn't kiss ass his guest all the time like the US Shows.

4 Jimmy Kimmel Live James Christian "Jimmy" Kimmel is an American television host, comedian, writer, and producer. He is the host and executive producer of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, a late-night talk show that premiered on ABC in 2003. Kimmel hosted the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2012 and 2016, and the Academy Awards in 2017 and ...read more.

Very funny, always make guets feel comfortable. Not like letterman which is a lot more bitter.

Jimmy Kimmel live show is the best to watch and he makes his stars guest to feel comfortable and he is the best talk host from Eliza Jane Turkington from United kingdom northern Ireland Ballymena

Funniest show on T.V.. Especially the pedestrian interviews those crack me up

Jimmy is the funniest of all the current late night talk show hosts.

5 The Colbert Report

The show is a whole 11 Seasons, Colbert then follows up with The Late Show and another Talk Show report. All real successful and an awesome deal in comedy. The Colbert Report is a great back track and hope The Late Show will reach near that sometime, pretty cool methods of presentation real smart point to punch line routine. Good job Stephen Colbert!

Its just great its the funniest talk show there is
Its brilliant in every way and is the best there is television has to offer
Its average rating is 9.0 way better than all the others

This show is always hilarious and interesting. Colbert always delivers the most amusing of information with a straight face and eloquent composure. Truly a great show.

Stephen Colbert is a genius. Honestly, his character never failed to make me smile. He changed the world, and I hope he continues to do so on The Late Show!

6 The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

Is funny but here you get the news you get no where else. Is a shame that we have to watch comedy central to get the news. Our news are picked to benefit the rich. For example, the biggest climate protest in history wasn't mentioned by some news stations and the stations that aired the protest didn't cover much. Hong Kong, is getting more attention than our protest.

One of the most informative and entertaining shows ever - comedy genius with heart!

Hilarious and brains! Love this show!

Jon Stewart is a hilarious genius. Keep it up Jon!

7 Alan Carr: Chatty Man

Hilarious and the drinks element is very nice.

8 The Late Show with David Letterman

David letterman is a man I believe that would always speak and smile even if he did not know you. he has no certain group of people who he likes or dislikes. Look at all the different singers and bands and people on his talk shows

I'm from the UK but I love to try to find this on YouTube etc, I watch all the people I know, he gets a lot out of the person being interviewed and he has a great sense of humour, he makes any other talk show look like a joke! David letterman for the world!

It's the perfect potion to cure my depression after along day at work with boring stupid people

he is the best. the show's format and david's charm makes this show #1

9 The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson

Not even close! By the way, Letterman's facial expressions are really annoying.

Johnny Carson is the best talk show host ever lived.

Would that we could have him back. The modern versions don't even come close.

Why is he not number 1? Is it because not many people know him?

Because many people who come to this list and vote never saw his shows.. That's the only reason. - Billyv

10 The Oprah Winfrey Show

I'm from Malaysia and I'm male but I love Oprah like no body business. She is awesome may God bless her for ever...

Oprah is the best talk show...
She have 25 of experience to become a host...
The show is so good! She help so many people...
Love oprah..
Oprah is the best ever host in the world.. She is on the list of influential people in the world!...

Oprah is the best that's why she is number one
She has a topic that is heart touching
And useful

Oprah is hands down the greatest interviewer of all time. Her ability to relax a guest in a way that makes them feel they are sitting by a fire with a cup of tea and only Oprah connects and opens them in a way no other interviewer I've seen in my lifetime.

The Contenders

11 The Jonathan Ross Show

Very good show I enjoyed it

12 The Jerry Springer Show The Jerry Springer Show, also known as Jerry Springer, or just Springer, is an American syndicated tabloid talk show hosted by Jerry Springer, a former politician.

Jerry springer has help so many young people to turn there life around. And to get there life back on track or some may have been in the jail system still on? Some may not have changed. But some have. And people do watch his show and learn a lot. He is very (easy)to talk to vey kind. And just shows love to everyone. He is another( one of the leaders trying )to help others. And he does. A good job.

Jerry springer has a good show. he goes out of his way to help people. any age any race. a lot of people may watch the show because they may need to talk to someone. and jerry gives you "that chance" to make that call. Sometime some people don't know who to talk to. And jerry always have something to say. to help others. They may not be on the show. but just watching it may help someone. somewhere

Best show I have ever seen, especially the fights its really entertaining

Haha it a crack up love the weave pulling matches

13 Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

This dude gots way more comedic skillz than all the others.

craig is the future of late night; everyone else gained popularity over time... plus, he's WAY funnier has NO SCRIPT! Ferguson ROX, man!

Charlie Rose and Craig are without a doubt better than David Letterman, Conan, Jay, or Oprah. Who made this foolish list? Foolishness. And who dares put Johnny Carson below number one.

Craig Ferguson should have gotten The Late Show job. He wouldn't have quit late night television had he received the job. So, sadly, we lost this amazing show and the show he could have had.

14 Trisha Goddard Show

I enjoyed watching this show trisha was always helping others. she always had a kind word to say. I really miss the show. Any one that can reach out to help others. they are the greatest. we all need someone."sometime" in our life.

15 The Late Late Show with James Corden

James is a wonderful person. His show is fun to watch, the segments are beautiful. I love carpool karaoke and flinch.

He is awesome I love everything about his show

What a nice guy

Funniest guy

16 Piers Morgan's Life Stories

Piers show was very good I enjoyed listening to him he is a very talent man. he always would have different people on his show he is man who could make you laugh. and listen. I really enjoyed him.

17 Da Ali G Show

A very good talk show I love it

18 Live with Regis and Kelly

This would not be a show without Regis and Kelly. they can make you laugh together. they can say something or do something to make you stop feeling sad. and get along great.. it goes to show. there are couples out there. (on the show) who can get along very well. And no problems. this is "GREAT"

I miss Regis. I liked his stories about the things that happened to him and his night on the town.

Loved when Regis would share his stories on the show. The first 20 minutes of host chat were the best.

I liked it more when Regis was around, but it's still good.

19 Late Show with David Letterman

Funniest man on earth

20 Real Time with Bill Maher

This guy here can do anything?. To make you laugh or listen or? Make you laugh. He is always. Dress nice. And very funny. And always ready to answer anything you wont to talk about? Or do. A good show and great guy.he is one of a (kind the best)

I really dislike republicans

A show with real discussion, good panels and a great host!

Great show, great host. Keep up the good work Bill.

21 The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Leno is without a doubt the funniest talk show host in america. Jimmy kimmel is a close second

Jay Leno has class and is the best by far!

I could say a lot about jay leno. but I will say a few things that I like about him. he is a very friendly man. very kind. will go out of his way to listen to you. and get to know you. Even if he did not know you. I believe he would still be kind and speak. To anyone.

The Chin. Not Funny.

22 Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

He focuses on entertainment and less on inspiring hatred and anger with politics which is what we need. There's so much to enjoy in this day and age.

Late night with jimmy fallon is a really great show!
He's a really funny guy and I watch him all the time
He has a lot of popular celebrity guests on his show every night he is really hilarious and so is his guests and he always plays amazing games with his guests best sense of style

He seems a bit stiff and fake to be honest

How can he be at no 15 your website is useless

23 The Wendy Williams Show

Wendy Williams is gonna be almost as popular as Oprah! I'll just sit back and watch as she becomes the new queen of talk! She says it it as it is, no bias"she apologizes to the people she likes",but still goes on and says what's going on! I love her for that,no holds barred way of telling what's up! How u doing' Wendy!

I love Wendy Williams. She's fair and informative. She really makes me laugh. I thinks she's classy, intelligent and definitely an entertainer.

I love the Wendy Williams Show. She's so honest and REAL. She's fair and honest. I really enjoy watching her show daily.

She is real with what she says plus funny!

24 Charlie Rose

Really the most interesting for me. Wonderful interviews thanks to C Rose's knowledge, and attitude. I now recommend it to my clients, non-native English speakers, who want more than the usual apps available.

Charlie rose is avery interesting man. he enjoyes his work and people. he seems to be very kind. and loves to listen. to others. And always has a smile.

The Khan story was a trap well sprung and distorted by the press and the DNC.

Khaizr Khan was invited with a purpose. Other parents who were not Muslim who lost a son in Irag were not invited.

However are you aware that Khan has lived in Saudi Arabia and has been involved with the Moslem Brotherhood? He sells US green cards to rich Muslim and is a supported of Sharia law in the US. He is an immigration attorney whose sole objective is to bring more misled into the US and he supports infiltration of of US military. He is afraid of Huma Abadin.

Written by a Middle Eastern person with copies of Khan's book detailing his faith in Shariah law. His military hero son (Accidentally killed by his own people) was an informer for the Saudi.

25 Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

This is simply the best show. It has information delivered in the funniest way. Very well researched and relevant. John Oliver is incredible. It's a show with brains

This show is rated 9.1/10. The other talk shows are rated well below 9 so I am really having a hard time understanding theses ratings.

So funny! Why is this not higher?

The Best. I'm from Germany and I love it.
