Brilliant Though Short-Lived Attempt To Re-Invent Talk Show Format
17 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Jackie Mason Show was a brilliant, though short-lived attempt to blend 'real people' talk with entertainment chat. A show that seemed an appropriate forum for both Phil Donahue and Joan Rivers, The Jackie Mason Show presented an interesting, timely and often hilarious look at events and issues of the day.

Mason stood on a platform surrounded by well over a dozen guests sitting in risers to his left and right. The group always took on hot topics, breathing fresh perspective into stories that were familiar to a news savvy audience.

Guests ranged from regular people off the street to high profile newsmakers to celebrity panelists.

WWOR-TV produced the show and yanked it off the air after only one season. Given time to evolve The Jackie Mason show would surely have developed into a poignant and thought-provoking forum, much like "Real Time with Bill Maher" or "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."
