This is a three-and-a-half hour weekly show with a wide-ranging, ever changing, incredibly diverse and (mostly) up-to-the-minute guest list and it's the best talk show on television - anywhere! Politicians, authors, entertainment stars, sports figures, other famous figures and members of the public all appear together and they sometimes face very tough questions, which they're not allowed to "spin" away from. Deep research is reflected by the questions asked. They're not scared to have on guests from other countries who don't speak French - their translators do an incredibly quick and accurate job and as soon as the question is asked in French the guest answers in their own language, which is then translated back into French. The choice of music used in the show is also incredible. Could you imagine a talk show this long and with such guests in the US? Never! Their on-set use of multiple monitors and portable TV screens, allowing a unique perspective of guests, is ingenious, yet so simple! Don't get this confused with the Canadian spin-off, which is dire by comparison. Ardisson is moving to a different network next season and no one is sure whether TV5 will pick up his show for US viewers but check their listings in September and see if it has returned.
