Storyline

Daytime, primetime, then late-night talk and variety show. Often there was only one guest (GA Gov. Lester Maddox walked out angrily during one interview). Cavett was intelligent and witty, perhaps too much so for television. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

THE BEST
2 February 2002 | by (Greenwood,SC) – See all my reviews

The Dick Cavett Show is the best talk show. I wasn't even born when it's on during the network run. I saw those episodes on the VH-1 Archives, the ones with Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Paul Simon, Jefferson Airplane, Sly and The Family Stone, Joni Mitchell, George Harrison, and More.

I was born on the same birthday as Dick Cavett's.

The Best.

I Give it *****.
