Storyline

A long-running talk show with a host of the same name. This show was one of the first challengers to Phil Donahue's undisputed rule over the daytime talk world. Raphael's subjects were often more sensational, and were often aimed more at titilation, rather than information. As time went on and shock TV became more popular, Raphael's show thrived while Donahue's faded. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Zhu Has It All Wrong
11 May 2002 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

Zhu didn't see the show at its best. Sally has been on longer than most other talk shows and is sadly being removed from the air now due to the fact that she can't and **won't** stoop to the sideshow tactics used by others in the business. The fact is that when she isn't force to do sensationalist shows, she shows a great deal of heart and tackles major issues. She does great celebrity interviews and has a wonderful sense of honor. I, for one, will truly miss her and wish her luck. Hopefully she will find her way back onto television again in the near future.
