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>

As far as talk shows go, this was one of the better ones
16 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I will admit I am not a huge fan of talk shows. There are one or two exceptions, but overall I find the guests rude and the audience unsympathetic especially on Maury, Jerry Springer and Steve Wilkos. Sally Jessy Raphael mayn't be high art or anything, but it was one of the better talk shows for me.

The main reason why this is so is Sally herself, she offered very good advice and was very genuine about what she says, it was these two things that make her likable. Also the audience was much more toned down here, on talk shows like Maury they boo, jeer and swear at someone who's cheated or denied their child but here they didn't prejudge the guests as much. And while there have been some horrible guests, there were also some inspirational ones which was refreshing to see.

Of course Sally Jessy Raphael didn't really cover new ground in terms of what is talked about on the show, but there was more variety than there is on Maury or Jerry Springer, which feels like the same thing over and over. Overall, thanks to a great host this is for me one of the better talk shows and I miss it. 7/10 Bethany Cox
