Series cast summary:
Montel Williams ...  Self - Host / ... 3,602 episodes, 1991-2009


Starting in the same year as Jerry Springer's talk show, Montel Williams aimed for the same audience, although using far less explict tactics to draw in viewers. While trying to remain racy, yet dignified, the show failed by not being as extreme as Springer, but also by not being as serious or relevant as Oprah Winfrey.

Premiering on the same year as Jerry Springer's talk show and to an lesser extent the same year as Maury Povich's talk show premiered,it is amazing that "The Montel Williams Show"(Syndication:1991-Present)is still going strong and is a favorite among the talk shows that are out there and it has been that way since the beginning of the 1990's until now. For one,Montel Williams will not tolerance any of the foolishness nor the buffoonery that is on the other shows since Montel Williams does not have to use explicit tactics to draw in viewers,nor does it ever have to be too serious or extremely relevant like Oprah Winfrey or to other shows that like to go beyond the point of normalicy to attract its viewers. After 14 seasons on television,Montel Williams has to be the most interesting talk show host ever and still holds the title. Not since the days of Phil Donahue have we seen a talk show this brilliant.

For one Montel may come off sensitive and sincere,but he is no push over. Nor he doesn't let the audience take over the day's discussion nor take over the show,but here is something that I like about it. For one Montel goes for the gusto,the meat and potatoes of the day's issues and for one confronts whatever topic is head-on. And for one Montel is a sincere and cordial host who knows when to talk and when to be quiet and he let's his audience know this too. With his passionate and provocative approach,Montel has really carved a niche in the daytime and sometimes prime-time talk arena(where his show is on both daytime and nighttime in prime-time national syndication)where he continues to make a difference by getting involved with the people and issues he so truly cares about while tackling the problems first-hand. As an advocate for change,The Montel Williams Show has featured interviews with influential politicians,experts,and ordinary people dealing with extraordinary circumstances. The show has also done something else as well--tackle social problems head on,addressing domestic abuse,the welfare system in America,foster care systems and the most important of them all......the education of our youth and the importance of staying in school and going onto the other things!!! Montel Williams has done more for the commitment of helping our nation's children and young adults then ever before. And to lend a helping hand to young adults who have been victims of violence. Not to mention spoke with guests who were committed to changing their lives in a positive way. What Montel did was turn a negative into a positive by providing assistance to those in need a change in their lives. Also to point out has helped parents and children build back their relationships that had been falling down over the years and just to start over,thanks to the hard work and dedication of Montel Williams.

Also Montel rallied his staff together during the attacks on 9/11 in New York City where he profiled some of the nation's heroes,and gave his support to find missing and loves ones. Not to mention he supported the victims of a devastation during the events of the worst disaster on record---Hurricane Katrina,and the destruction it cause in parts of Louisiana and Mississippi not to mention Alabama. As a caring and compassionate person he was one of the few talk show hosts who aided victims and gave his assistance during times of despair and anger that left New Orleans in dire straits. His ability to empower people successfully by arranging for many of his guests to receive treatment for problems and gives them a chance to rebulid their lives thanks to a man whose hard work and dedication made this happen. And the ONLY talk show host that makes a difference in everyday lives.

I won't start with the MS bit,I concentrating on the positivity here.
