When a talk show actually had talk...
21 July 2019 | by laughing_catSee all my reviews

Unlike today's late night talk shows that are filled with shtick and gimmicks, the Merv Griffin Show truly highlights its guests and has terrific conversations with them. Of course, the wit and experience of the guests were of a higher caliber too. The older ones were icons like Jack Benny, Laurence Olivier, and Hedy LaMarr. The younger ones were amazing talents like Steve Martin and Jay Leno. Merv Griffin is so respectful and to his guests, never making it about himself. Each segment is a treasure.
