Storyline

Pioneering the field of trash-TV, Geraldo Rivera managed to one-up fellow talk show hosts Phil Donahue and Oprah Winfrey by skipping over any socially relevant topics and going straight to sex, death and hate. In doing so, he paved the way for later sleaze hosts such as Jenny Jones, Montel Williams and Jerry Springer. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

The First seven years
12 August 2003 | by (Toronto Ontario) – See all my reviews

I used to watch the Geraldo show which back in the late 80's when it came on the air more than several months after Oprah's show. It had every topic of discussion which ranges from Sex issues to Law which like every other talk show you see a panel of guest's of every walk of life. The most famous of all Geraldo show's was the infamous skinhead brawl which broke Geraldo's nose which you can bet will be talked about for years. Some of Geraldo's show's had some good and some bad which often at times it could get way out of hand. The last big program of Geraldo was the O.J. Simpson case which by that point Geraldo decided his show was no longer going to feature domestic problems and sexual abuse cases. In all it was a great program to watch during it's good years 87-95.
