During the show's run, O'Donnell toned down her usual sharp tongue, to the point where she was called "the Queen of Nice" by the media. She appreciated the attention, but her return to standup comedy after leaving the show also meant the return of a harsher attitude.

O'Donnell's model for the show was _Mike Douglas Show, The (1961)_, which her family had watched growing up. Douglas's weekday talk show brought celebrities together with each other and regular people, while whole families could watch at home, and O'Donnell wanted to do likewise.
