Storyline

Starting in the same year as Jerry Springer's talk show, Montel Williams aimed for the same audience, although using far less explict tactics to draw in viewers. While trying to remain racy, yet dignified, the show failed by not being as extreme as Springer, but also by not being as serious or relevant as Oprah Winfrey.

Tough and no-nonsense talk show host!
10 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If Montel Williams and Sylvia Browne co-hosted a show together every day, I would have my VCR/DVD recorder set to tape them. Besides, Montel Williams is one of the better talk show hosts around. He does delve into difficult topics and leaves the celebrity guests for the View and Regis and Kelly. Sylvia Browne is always on Wednesday and I love watching what she has to say about the future. They are kindred spirits brought together by higher powers. If you don't believe in that stuff, don't watch the show on Wednesdays. On Thursdays, it's about true crime stories. Also he is not afraid to deal with difficult taboo subjects like sexual, physical abuse, etc. Also, he has to deal with his MS which he is open and honest about from the moment he was diagnosed with it. I'm sure he is inspiring a lot of MS sufferers to overcome their difficulties. Anyway, Montel doesn't play around with his audience. He tells you and informs you of his upcoming guests. No, they are not celebrities. They are usually authors of books to help you improve yourselves or overcome debt, personal problems. etc. I don't know why he moved the show to New York City but I think it's because New York City is where the talk shows gather. I don't think location matters with talk shows whether in New York, Los Angeles, or Chicago but he seems happier in New York City. I still would like him to do shows on the Jonestown Massacre and the Pan Am 103 Lockerbie disaster in 2008 since it will be 30 years ago since Jonestown and 20 years ago since Pan Am 103 exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland from a small bomb and we still haven't learned from that disaster.
