The Tyra Banks Show (2005–2011)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
It would be an okay show, like a daughter to the Winfrey Show, if it wasn't for the host herself.
I get the creepy feeling that I know Tyra Banks mother better than my own. The word "I" gets a new synonym in this show = Tyra Banks.
The guests are okay, BUT if they are good people, like saving the world or something like that, Tyra wont give THEM credit for that, but to herself because she saved a 100 children or what the hell do I know.
Is it a "bad" guest (stripper, whore), Tyra Banks will do anything in her power to prove to the world that she is SOOO against it. So against it that her mother will appear on the show, talking about what a tough childhood Tyra had, but she never took the down road to stripping blablabla.
Watch it only if your extremely bored. Or if your writing Tyra Banks biography book.
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.
I thought 'America's Next Top Model' was bad, but now it seems like some form of high art compared to 'The Tyra Banks Show'!!
Avoid at all costs, unless you want a cheap laugh (though it feels wrong, like those insensitive folks who like making fun of handicapped people) - in fact when I first saw the show I wondered if I was watching one of those comedy spoofs. But unfortunately not, this is the real deal... brain-dead morons hosting TV shows, what'll they think of next?
You also gotta love her getting dressed up as a stripper and then backing out. I guess in the end Tyra couldn't force herself to go parading out on a stage 1/2 naked...oh wait....didn't she do that for Victoria's Secret?? Oh, but that is different I guess.
Tyras outfits are ridiculous, her make-up is caked on, and her hair must weigh at least 10 pounds.
But of course she ruined Top Model, so why not ruin this show as well? Hopefully they will cancel it soon and she can find something else to do with her time.
Maybe she can go back to her singing career (LOL).
To be fair, i have only seen two-three shows which may, by some freak accident, have been the worst shows that she ever recorded. Eitherway, as a talk show host I believe that their opinion should not be expressed in every sentence because this, amongst other reasons, will intimidate guests and prevent them from expressing their own viewpoints. Tyra constantly imposes her own perspective onto both the guests and the audience which frustrates me to the point where my blood begins to boil. The episode where Sasha Grey (who i personally believe to be one of the more intelligent porn stars) is on the show and represents "Teenagers in pornography" has to be the worst piece of s**t ever put on TV. I have never seen a more biased host which is apparent in every single one of her leading question. She then goes on to support the other guests who seem to be entirely opposed to pornography due to their own personal experiences (which is perfectly fine) but to support these guests and not Sasha is despicable. Not only does she continuously interrupt Sasha and refuse to allow her to express her opinion, in the closing scenes she can be seen hugging the younger guest and saying something like "I'm glad about the progress which we have made with (name)". Sasha is, of course, not even included in this wrap up and no mention of her perspective on the subject is mentioned.
This really made me sick. My view of Tyra Banks (which has never been positive) really has sunk through the floor. I look forward to boycotting all of her future shows.
