Tavis Smile is the MAN!!!
21 October 2004 | by EasyAttackSee all my reviews

I love this show. Tavis Smiley's PBS show is good enough to be on network television. Tavis books the best guests and asks good questions. The people at BET are idiots for letting this man go. My only complaint about this show is that it is only 30 minutes when it should be a full hour. Tavis Smiley always represents! If you haven't seen this show, or never watch PBS, I suggest you start. Tavis Smiley has had guests ranging from Tom Cruise, John Edwards, Maya Angelou, Bruce Willis, Borack Obama, and others. Politicians, actors, writers, artists... Tavis has them all. I really cannot stress how good this show. Tavis's show takes place in Los Angeles and represents with Los Angeles is all about(at least the part where I am from). Keep doing your thing Tavis!
