Clever take on small town television stations and local shows
In somewhat the same vein as "Fernwood Tonight," "My Talk Show" was about a low budget, small town television talk show. The spin on this was that the station couldn't afford to have a set, so they had Jennifer Bass (the brilliant Cynthia Stephenson) use her own living room for the show.
The producers purposely made the production values low. Unfortunately, I think too many people really didn't have a clue about how clever this show was. Her 'guest' stars ran the range from her neighbors to the local dog catcher, even sometimes including a 'name' star that happened to be passing through her town. She bickered with her sidekick/cohost, had emergencies when something she was cooking in the next rood started to burn, and problems being taken seriously by the people aroundher. And Cynthia Stephenson played the part in a way only she could have. The syndicated show only ran about one year. Is there anybody out there from TVLand? Can we get this back on the air, please?
