Storyline

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.

Montel You the Man!!!
2 February 2004 | by Memento_10See all my reviews

When you think that talk shows are only about Jerry Springer and Jenny Jones shows about men and women with one tooth, is part raccoon part trailer trash. Tired of those shoes then watch MONTEL!

Montel is such a good host. He knows when to talk and when to be quiet. He has good topics not topics about men having affairs with sheep like other shows. His shows have meaning and heart. I hope this show stays on the air for many years.

Montel KICKS ASS!
