I could go a lifetime without ever seeing Tyra Banks on television again
Talk about over-exposure. First she had a grating, oh-so-very-staged "reality" television show named America's Top Model - which was repetitive garbage - and the next thing you know she's got a big-budget talk show, complete with a huge flickering sign that says "TYRA!" in the background. Yay! (As if we might have forgotten her name.) Banks is one of the most pretentious, pompous and arrogant people you're likely to ever see grace the television set. Her stint on America's Top Model consisted of constantly reminding all the other models that, hey, she's Tyra Banks! She, like, really cool and smart and stuff! She's a model and she knows who's hot and who's not! If you enjoy promoting materialism and the superficial than by all means, Tyra would likely be your hero. But if you are disgusted - as I am - by watching egotistical, dumb people on television trying to tell other people how they should look more beautiful (because remember, children - outer beauty is all that really counts!), you're likely to loathe this as I do.
As far as talk shows go it is very basic - it's the standard deal with the special guest interviews and such. I just find Tyra Banks to be such a grating figure that I can't even enjoy any part of the interviews. It's clear she thinks so much of herself and often cuts off the people she is interviewing to give her own personal stories that she has been reminded of whilst they were responding to one of her questions.
I haven't seen very much of it, but Heidi Klum has a fashion show as well and I found it far more entertaining because Klum - although perhaps not the brightest person in the world - isn't as presumptuous or arrogant as Banks. Maybe she wouldn't be the best candidate for a talk show, but I'd rather watch her pleasant demeanor than have to put up with Trya's big ego.
