Very Good Talk Show That Ended Well Before It's Time., 9 March 2003
Author: Dana F. Murray from Massachusetts

This was a very good talk show with a unique format. Sometimes this format (of having about 4 guests per show) was a bit to fast (you didn't really get to enjoy the really good guests) but it did keep the show moving. I was very surprised when it was canceled. I don't think that the "Network Suits" gave this show a fair chance. If they had let it be, I think the ratings would have continued to grow over another couple seasons. In fact, just before it was canceled, I was reading about how well it was doing, so that makes its cancellation that much more mysterious.

Donny and Marie were the consummate hosts. They were kind, friendly and outgoing. With Donny and Marie, what you saw is what you got..two very genuine, real people, who between them, had a boat-load of talent. Similar to Johnny Carson (the Talk show host against whom all others are judged), made their guests not only feel welcome, but enabled them to just be themselves, and be at ease, something a lot of guest don't seem to be able to do on many other talk shows.

This was a quality show that ended much to soon.
