Storyline

A celebrity interview show. Each show was usually devoted to a single celebrity. Brian Linehan was the interviewer, and he was especially noted for the rare depth of his research. Celebrities were often startled, flattered, or dismayed by the questions he would ask about less frequently discussed or even obscure aspects of their lives and careers. His questioning was probing and revealing, but never adversarial. His most famous interview was one done with Burt Reynolds, where Reynolds exclaimed, "You just hit nerves." Apparently, for some time, Linehan's unprecedented interview approach made this show a popular fad among celebrities in Hollywood. Written by David Badger

Wackiest show after Rocket Robin Hood
24 December 2003 | by (SF) – See all my reviews

Ok, I haven't thought about this show and all of sudden I'm listening to an internet radio station that pumps out George Benson's Breezin'. I never knew it as Breezin' just the damned theme song to this show. I remember Brian being a very unctuous, smarmy guy and me never being able to sit through it (I was also 8-12 at the time and had no patience for that kinda crap)

I also remember Martin Short (fellow Canadian) doing a dead-on impersonation of Brian Linehan (a man more tanned than even George Hamilton).

Anyhow, just hearing those 12 flute notes unlocked a whole treasure trove of childhood lunchtime memories.

For those of you who group in the Toronto area you'll remember City Lights was on City TV (what was Channel 79, now Channel 57, cable 7). Miss my Toronto.
